      Once again Ernie Els outlasted Tom Lehman and Colin Montgomerie last
 year, as he posted a one-shot win over Lehman and two strokes better than
 Montgomerie. Just like in 1997 when Els defeated Lehman and Monty at the U.S.
 Open, the talented South African posted his fourth straight round in the 60's
 to edge out the duo. Lehman, who defeated Els at this event in 1997, closed
 with a 69 as did 1999 winner Montgomerie. Geoff Ogilvy and Jarmo Sandelin
 recorded holes-in-one last year, both on the 17th hole. Ogilvy posted his
 during round three while Sandelin accomplished the feat in the final round, as
 he finished tied for seventh. This event features one of the strongest fields
 in tournament history, as it serves as the final tune-up for next week's
 British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club. This year's entries
 include no fewer than 12 Major Championship winners who combined have won
 27 Major titles. Joining Els and Lehman is the new US Open champion Retief
 Goosen along with Seve Ballesteros, John Daly, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Paul
 Lawrie, Sandy Lyle, Greg Norman, José Maria Olazábal and Ian Woosnam. Last
 year, American's David Gossett and Matt Kuchar competed as amateurs with
 Gossett tying for 15th and Kuchar tying for 22nd. The purse for this week's
 event was increased by 1,100,000 pounds from last year. The renewal of The
 Scottish Open at Loch Lomond will impact on the completion of the field for
 the 130th Open Championship. A total of 15 places will be on offer at Loch
 Lomond - the leading eight players not otherwise exempt from the tournament
 and the leading seven players and ties within the top 25 of a cumulative money
 list from the Volvo Order of Merit events which commenced at the Volvo PGA
 Championship and concludes with the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond. Next
 week's 130th Open Championship will be defended by world number one Tiger Woods.
