Ernie Wins Another Open Championship

Ernie Els shot a great 68 in the final round – including a 32 on the back side, to grab his second Claret Jug.  Adam Scott lost, but he didn’t choke it away.  He was more like Ed Sneed at the 1979 Masters, who bogied the last 3 holes but really didn’t hit terrible shots, he just could make any putts.  I feel badly for Adam, but Ernie has had a lot of his own trials, and he is such a deserving champion –  he hit the ball the best from tee to green and made it happen when he had to.  Ten years between majors and wins in three different decades.  That is truly Hall of Fame stuff from a Hall of Famer.  Way to go!
