S. Africa's Els Wins Heineken Classic Golf Tournament - 2004-02-08

Defending champion Ernie Els of South Africa has won the Heineken Classic golf tournament in Melbourne, Australia.

Els started Sunday's final round with an eight-shot lead, but saw it evaporate with four bogeys and a triple bogey, before he hit four birdies in five holes.

He finished the round with a two-over-par 74, but it was enough for a one-stroke victory and his third straight Heineken title.

Australia's Adam Scott shot a five-under-par 67 to finish in second place, and countryman Peter Fowler was third, five strokes off the lead.
