That was one of those moments when your heart is divided. On one side the deep disappointment at watching Adam Scott losing a fine chance for his first major win, on the other hand Ernie Els taking the grip of his game and showing the champion he is. I like them both, I was unable to feel completely glad or sad as I watched the final round at the 141st Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

Nevertheless I’m pleased with this comment at The Open Championship official site  “If anybody ever feels like writing a textbook on the art of conducting a graceful press conference in the immediate aftermath of a professional disaster, then they should model all the key chapters on Adam Scott.”

Well done Adam!
