2012 British Open

 

The 2012 British Open was the tournament's 141st edition, and Ernie Els won it for his fourth major victory.

Winner: Ernie Els, 273

Where it was played: Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club, Lytham St. Annes, England

Tournament dates: July 19-22, 2012

Leader after first round: Adam Scott, 64

Leader after second round: Brandt Snedeker, 130

Leader after third round: Adam Scott, 199

Notable Notes: Ernie Els was the winner of this Open, and Adam Scott was the loser. Scott started the final round six strokes ahead of Els, but Els shot 68 to Scott's 75. Scott bogied the last four holes of the tournament, missing a par putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff.

It was the second win in the British Open for Els, and his fourth overall major title.
