Defending Open Champion Phil Mickelson’s Struggles Continue

HOYLAKE, England — When he won the Open Championship last year, Phil Mickelson did so with a burst of birdies on the back 9 that came from nowhere. Nobody ever expected him to win this tournament. Even he was staggered to do it, and he has since described it as his greatest achievement in golf. It was a victory that moved him to tears; since then, it has been his game that has...

Ernie Els Three-Putts From Two Feet Away

This is tough to watch. Two-foot putts are usually gimmes. Pros still have to putt them, but the conversion rate is so high they are essentially gimmes, except when they are not. Sometimes when it rains, it pours. That was the case for Ernie Els who not only missed a two-foot putt, but got lackadaisical with the comebacker and missed that too. Although it’s not necessarily a death...

Ernie Els Manages To Turn A Two-Foot Putt Into An Embarrassing Disaster

Ernie Els’ first hole at the British Open was pretty much as bad as it gets. After smashing his tee shot into the crowd and striking a fan, Els put his approach shot into the bunker. After a nice out from the sand, it looked like he had a chance at a decent recovery for bogey. Then he did this. .embed-container {position: relative; padding-bottom: 100%; height: 0; overflow: hidden...

Ernie Els Has A Brain Cramp On First Hole

We’ve all done it before. You’ve just made a complete mess of a golf hole, hitting shot after shot before finally getting up on the green. You’re frustrated. You kind of want to pick up and go home. To add insult to injury, you miss a short putt for a bogey. Angry, you swipe at the next putt backhanded… and then miss again. Welp. Ernie Els just did the same thing. Except...

Ernie Els three-putts from two feet for triple bogey (Video)

Ernie Els started the British Open with a triple-bogey on Thursday, and it could have easily been avoided if he wasn’t so careless. Els, a 44-year-old veteran who has won 19 times on the PGA Tour, somehow putted three times from inside two feet. Els had to work hard to put himself in position for […]

9 Best Players Never to Win the Open Championship

Last year, Phil Mickelson proved many of his critics wrong by winning the one tournament most thought he never would: the Open Championship. Before his triumph at Murifield in 2013, Mickelson would have been considered one of the best all-around players to never hoist the claret jug. Now, he’s just one very elusive win at the U.S. Open away from completing the career grand slam...

Anyone who was watching the final round of the British Open on Sunday likely thought Adam Scott had the major won through 14 holes. Scott had a four-shot lead over Ernie Els with only four holes remaining, but he bogeyed every one of them. Els, who finished before Scott, turned up the pressure with a great birdie putt on the 18th. The rest was history and Els wound up with the...
