2012 British Open: Adam Scott Got His Name On A Medal, Sort Of

Adam Scott is going to be thinking about how close he was to winning the 2012 British Open for some time to come — at least, he'll be thinking about that until he does, in fact, win a major. Seeing that his name was literally on a medal will probably not help him stop thinking about it.

Scott's four bogeys over his final four holes paved the way for Ernie Els to take his second career British Open, but the narrative of the 2012 Open Championship may well be Scott's staggering collapse.

Scott has 18 professional titles, seven wins coming on the PGA Tour and eight on the European Tour, and has four top-10s in his last seven majors. Scott's career will be defined by his performance in majors, however, as the careers of so many talented golfers are — and his arc is beginning to look a lot like that of fellow star-crossed Aussie Greg Norman.
