Els shot 70 and 68 respectively in the first two rounds, and a No 3 bogey on Sunday didn’t help his chances of a comeback But the 50-year-old started to land three consecutive birdies on Nos 6-8 and add four more on the back nine He finished the weekend at 12 under par, one shot from the field

“I had 64 in mind,” Els said when asked if he had a particular target score for the day “You know, especially in the final, there were so many guys grouped together. came from 6 pennies I thought 14 pennies was maybe a good score but then the conditions helped and it got really tough So 66 was fair, just squeaked in there « 

Second place goes to Scotsman Colin Montgomerie, tied for pole position before the final round despite the 57-year-old having won the PGA Tour Champions seven times before (and 42 times abroad) , he could not take the opportunity Montgomerie shot a 2-under 70 (three birdies, one bogey) to finish 11 under
