- 4 For Els
Ernie Els carded four back 9 birdies, including a 12-footer on the 18th hole to post 7-under-par to win The 141st Open Championship by a single shot. It's his 2nd career Open title and 4th career major championship victory.
- Scott's Slide
Els got some help from Adam Scott, who bogeyed the last 4 holes Sunday to shoot a final round 75. Scott finished one shot back as he still searches for the first major win of his career.
- Waiting for 15
Tiger Woods was even par after 5 holes Sunday before hitting into a greenside bunker on 6. It led to triple bogey. Woods shot a final round 73 to finish in a tie for 3rd place. It's his highest finish in a major since the 2009 PGA Championship.
- No Stalling
Scott Stallings ended any talk of having a sophomore slump with a two-shot win in the True South Classic over Jason Bohn. It is his 2nd career PGA TOUR win and remember, he won The Greenbrier Classic in his 2011 rookie season.
