Els, whose seven-under-par total of 273
Els, whose oakley sunglasses outlet seven-under-par total of 273 was one stroke better than Scott, knows plenty about the beast that is major pressure. Despite his nickname, the Big Easy, it has hardly been easy for Els to get his hands back on the claret jug. This was his fourth major championship but his first since 2002, when he won the British Open at Muirfield in a playoff after surrendering a final-round lead. Els is 42, the same age as Darren Clarke was when he won the Open at Royal St. George’s last year. Clarke found a rare vein of form in oakley crankcase sunglasses extreme conditions and has done little of golfing note since his surprise victory. Els, even though he failed to qualify for the Masters this year, has been gathering strength and confidence, but this triumph was still quite a shock considering that he was six shots off the lead when the final round began and still six back when he completed the front nine in 36, or two over par. But on a blustery day when Royal Lytham & St. Annes finally began to play like a brute, Els managed to feed off his frustration and commit to playing oakley dispatch sunglasses more aggressively and hitting more drives off the tees.
