Nobody knew Ernie Els was going to win his second British Open until Adam Scott missed his second-to-last putt, sealing his fourth straight bogey and handing the Claret Jug over to the Big Easy. The Big Easy's win was just the end of the story. Here's the full one, in .GIF and video form:
Rory McIlroy didn't have a great tournament, and must have felt even worse than his scorecard after beaning this fan in the gallery with his ball.
Phil Mickelson was bad for two days and home for the weekend at Royal Lytham and St. Anne's, as evidenced above when he was searching for his iron shot on Thursday.
As bad as Phil was, Tiger was just as impressive, firmly in contention heading into the weekend, thanks to this wonderful shot on 18.
via @SI_Golf, this golf fan had the world smitten on Saturday.
Tiger's tournament was looking promising on Day 3, when he was sinking putts like above. That all came to a screeching halt on Sunday...
... when Woods' contention ended abruptly after finding himself in a bunker and triple-bogeying the hole. He was sniffing Adam Scott's coattails, but this ended his pursuit. Thank goodness this was so much funnier than the U.S. Open collapse
Adam Scott's anguish, in video form. After bogeying four straight holes to relinquish his three-shot lead, it's a wonder he was able to keep it together. This is a man clearly in shock though. I wouldn't have wanted to be a can of Foster's near the Australian last night.
Finally, Ernie's victory speech, complete with Canada zinger.
