The final round of the British Open, in photos

The final round of the British Open might have started slow, but it ended with fireworks. Here are some lasting images from a great Sunday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

Tiger Woods' day ended when he found this bunker on the par-4 6th hole. Woods tried to get it out, left it in the bunker, and was forced to take this strange stance that would lead to a tournament-ending triple-bogey. (Getty Images)

Graeme McDowell's push for a second major championship was halted when his second shot on the par-5 11th went well left into the bushes. He couldn't find his ball, went on to make bogey and a 5-over 75. (Getty Images)

A missed par putt on the final hole was the final dagger to Adam Scott's chances, his fourth straight bogey to end his bid at his first major title. (Getty Images)

This face by Adam Scott says it all. (Getty Images)

Ernie Els was all smiles claiming his fourth major title at the 2012 British Open, the second time he's held the Claret Jug in his career. (Getty Images)
