Round 4: Open Championship
July 22 2012
Now all Ernie Els can do is wait.
Els birdied the 18th hole to cap a round of 68 to finish at 7 under. He is one shot back of Adam Scott, who is 3 over on the day and in the fairway on the 17th hole, trying to hang on for his first career major championship.
Scott once led by four with four holes to play but that lead has continued to shrink.
Els has one win (in 2002) and three career runner-up finishes in the British Open. One of those was a playoff loss to Todd Hamilton.
Depending what Scott does these last two holes, another playoff could be in store.
Should it go into extra holes, there would be a four-hole aggregate playoff.
