Todd Hamilton beats Ernie Els, winning the 133rd Open Championship
Little-known American Todd Hamilton beat Ernie Els in a play-off to clinch the Open title at Royal Troon.
The pair tied at 10 under when Hamilton bogeyed the last but he bounced back to win the four-hole play-off by a shot.
Masters champion Phil Mickelson was third on nine under, with England's Lee Westwood fourth on his own at six under after a closing 67.
Tiger Woods finished at three under and local hero Colin Montgomerie ended up a disappointing two over after a 76.
The 38-year-old Hamilton won his first major title after Els pulled his tee shot en route to a bogey at the short 17th, the third extra hole.
The pair shared pars at the first and second holes and Els was unable to force a tying birdie on the 18th.
