Adam Scott bogeyed his final four holes Sunday to give Ernie Els the win at the 2012 British Open. Scott's collapse was a costly one. He will take home €656,864, or roughly $600,000 less than Els earned (€1,136,880) for winning the tournament.
The purse at the tournament was the same as 2011, with $7,745,085 being divvied up among the competitors. Over $1.4 million went to Els as he won the second Open Championship of his career.
