British Open Highlights 2012: Adam Scott's Collapse Leads To Ernie Els Victory

The 2012 British Open entered its final day on Sunday looking like a bit of a foregone conclusion. Adam Scott had a healthy lead and held onto it over the course of most of the fourth round. Then, Scott hit four straight bogeys on the final four holes to lose his all-but-certain first career Major win and allow Ernie Els to claim the title while watching from the clubhouse.

As Scott bogeyed the 18th hole and gave the Claret Jug away with this short putt, you could see the immense anguish he was experiencing. Watch as he bogeys and crouches in disbelief, unable to process what just happened for a long moment. It is exceedingly heartbreaking and a horrible way to lose what appeared to be a sure thing.

The amazing thing is that, following the U.S. Open, this is the second straight PGA Major event to end with a massive late collapse.

British Open Prize Money 2012: Ernie Els, Adam Scott Earn The Most

The 2012 Open Championship wasn't just a show of an epic collapse by Adam Scott, but a huge reversal in money. Scott probably lost over half-a-million dollars thanks to his stunning fall those final few holes, as he ended up with $838,978. Ernie Els, the eventual 2012 British Open champion, won $1.4 million overall. TIger Woods came up right behind Els and Scott, finishing in a tie for third and earning $479,992 overall.

One Seattle golfer did end with a nice pay-day after he finished in a tie for 39th. Gig Harbor resident Kyle Stanley earned $33,075 for his efforts. Troy Kelly missed the cut and didn't earn any money from the Open. Not too bad considering Ben Crane didn't end up getting a chance to play.

British Open 2012, Results: Ernie Els Wins Second Career Open Championship

It was an exciting finish at the 2012 Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Anne's as Adam Scott was looking to hang on to his big lead down the stretch.

But thanks to an impressive birdie putt on the 72 hole by South African Ernie Els, and a complete collapse by Scott over his last four holes, led the way for Els' second Open title, and fourth major of his career.

Els fired a final round of 2-under 68 on a day that red numbers were hard to come by, though was looking like it would matter not as Adam Scott was well ahead of the field. But with bogies on his last four holes, including missing a par putt on the18th to force a playoff with Els, Scott would have to settle for second. He finished with a round of 5-over 75 on Sunday.

Tiger Woods also struggled mightliy on Sunday, dropping a number of shots including a triple-bogey on the 6th. Still, Tiger would finish tied for third with Brandt Snedeker after a 3-over 73

Els, 42, has now won a major in three different decades.

2012 British Open Odds: This Is Adam Scott's Tournament To Lose

Tiger Woods, as has so often been the case this year, entered the 2012 British Open as the odds-on betting favorite to win the whole thing. Heading into Sunday's final round at the Open Championship, he is no longer the favorite, but he is still very much in the hunt to capture his 15th major title. He has also looked better in this tournament than he has most of the year.

The favorite heading into the final day is Adam Scott, who will begin the final round at 11-under and with a four-stroke lead on the next two closest golfers, Brandt Snedeker and Graeme McDowell. Woods is not far off, at 6-under and alone in fourth place. Currently, Scott is the 2/3 favorite to win, while the odds against Woods capturing the title are 5/1.

Here are the current odds to win the 2012 British Open.

Adam Scott 2/3
Graeme McDowell 4/1
Tiger Woods 5/1
Brandt Snedeker 12/1

2012 British Open Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Shoots Even Par On Saturday

Tiger Woods entered the third round of the 2012 British Open just a few strokes back of the leaders. A rough start slowed him down a bit, but Woods still managed a couple of mid-round birdies to propel him to a par-70 in the third round. He remains at -6 for the tournament and will enter Sunday with a chance to claim his elusive 15th major championship.

Adam Scott was one of the big stories of the day. He shot a -2 on Saturday, improving him to -11 for the tournament. As of late this morning, that was good for a four-stroke lead over the field. He'll enter the fourth round as the heavy favorite.

Tournament leader Brandt Snedeker really struggled today, shooting a +3 to drop him to -7 for the tournament. Despite the rough day, he gained some momentum late with two birdies on his final three holes.

2012 British Open, Leaderboard Update: Brandt Snedeker Leads The Way As Tiger Woods Lurks

Austrailian Adam Scott put on a clinic on Thursday at the 2012 British Open, and backed it up with another terrific round on Friday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. But it was Brandt Snedeker who stole the show in the second round, firing a 6-under 64 to vault atop the leaderboard at 10-under for the week.

Snedeker made history on Friday as he is now tied with Nick Faldo for the lowest 36-hole score ever at the Open. As for Scott, he used a second round 67 to leave him just one shot off the pace at 9-under in solo second.

Then there was Tiger Woods, who after a second straight round of 3-under 67 finds himself in solo third at 6-under. Tiger birdied three of his last four holes included a chip in from a greenside bunker on the 18th.

Paul Lawrie and Graeme McDowell headline a large group at 4-under for the week, while former champion Ernie Els is 3-under for the week. Phil Mickelson never got anything going, missing the cut at 10-over par.

British Open 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Favored, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott Right Behind

The 2012 British Open heads into the second round, and current odds have been updated going into Friday's action. Here are the upcoming odds for each of the main favorites

Tiger Woods, who stands at -3 after one round, has 4/1 odds to lead the pack. Woods is the bankable name, and anytime he's in contention during the week at a major he's going to be the favorite going into the upcoming round. Rory McIlroy also stands at -3, but his odds are a little bit lower at 7/1. Adam Scott is the clubhouse leader at -6, but the bookmakers aren't quite ready to make him the favorite yet. They give him favorable position along with McIlroy at 7/1.

Zach Johnson stands one shot off the lead at -5, but it's still too early to really promote him as a favorite. At 10/1 he has pretty solid odds if you want to go with him, considering his overall value and his probability to win the thing given his strong first round.

The Open Championship 2012, First Round Scores: Adam Scott Leads As Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Lurk

It was the tale of two weather reports on Thursday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes during the first round of the 2012 Open Championship. The morning group saw benign conditions ripe for the taking, while the later groups saw the wind pick up, and rain come down.

British Open 2012, Leaderboard Update: Adam Scott Leads At -6, Tiger Woods Solid At -3

Conditions for the morning group on Thursday at the 2012 Open Championship were ripe after a light overnight rain and stagnent winds at Royal Lytham St. Annes this morning led to low scores. Many golfers took advantage, including Tiger Woods and current tournament leader Adam Scott.

Scott, the Australian native, came close to an opening round major championship scoring record before finishing with a 6-under 64, tying the lowest score shot ever at Royal Lytham.

After the round Scott had this to say about the conditions and his mindset this week:

"It's nice just to take advantage of the calm conditions today,'' Scott said. "It was surprising but very pleasing to go out and play some solid golf. It's what I haven't done the first rounds of the majors this year, and that was my goal here, really, starting the week was to play today like it was Sunday and there was no tomorrow."

As for Tiger Woods, he came out firing with four birdies in his first seven holes, finishing his round with a 3-under 67. Woods was on point off the tee and with his iron play, missing just one fairway while hitting 15 of 18 greens, but needed 30 putts on the day. Tiger spoke about the soft conditions after his round:

"It was pretty soft,'' he said. "The wind wasn't blowing, and we're backing golf balls up. That's something we just don't see. On the first hole is a perfect indication; I hit a 5 iron straight at it, and it rolled out 8 feet. I can't remember the last time it does that on links golf course.

As for the other morning players, Paul Lawrie and Zach Johnson each fired an opening round 65 to sit just one shot behind Scott. Bubba Watson, Graeme McDowell and Kegan Bradley all fired 67's to remain tied with Woods.

The Open Championship 2012: Tee Times, Pairings For Friday's First Round

British Open Odds: Kyle Stanley And Troy Kelly Longshots

The 2012 British Open will not feature Ben Crane, as he was a reserve alternate in case other golfers pulled out. Crane did get an opening, but ended up taking his name off the list when all was said and done.

Crane was probably the Seattle area's best chance at winning a major. Without him, that leaves two golfers with Seattle-area connections, neither of whom figure to do all that much this week. Both of them are huge underdogs compared to the regular establishment, so you might want to be careful at investing too much in either of them winning here.

According to this article from Bankroll Sports Picks, Kyle Stanley has 200/1 odds to win at the Bovada Sportsbook and 350/1 odds to win from 5Dimes. Troy Kelly fares even worse, getting 500/1 odds from Bovada and 1000/1 odds to win from 5Dimes. I guess if you're a big fan of making a couple of dollar picks here and there, this could end up being a solid proposition. Don't just expect to cash out unless some weird things happen this weekend at Royal Lytham.

British Open Draw Revealed

The 141st British Open Championship has revealed its draw for the tournament, and probably the biggest news of that is when Tiger Woods is teeing off.

Woods is going for his fourth British Open victory and will be in the same group as Englishman Justin Rose and Spaniard Sergio Garcia, ranked 9th and 23rd in the world respectively.

The two local boys, Gig Harbor product Kyle Stanley and previous Tacoma resident Troy Kelly have much less intimidating groups to tee off with. Stanley will tee off at 7:58 with fellow U.S.A. resident Stephen Ames, ranked 423rd, and Englishman Robert Rock, ranked 60th.

Troy Kelly tees off in the second to last group alongside Morten Orum Madsen and Anirban Lahiri. The Danish Madsen is ranked 560th and the Indian born Lahiri is ranked 226th.

More coverage of The Open can be found on their website. Follow more coverage of the British Open on the SB Nation storystream.
