Chris Stroud ALMOST Won a New BMW
With all the awesome activities going on at Cherry Hills this week thanks to tournament sponsor BMW, the fact that it’s actually giving away a brand-new BMW M4 Coupe may have been overlooked...
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 got off to a sloppy start at the 1st hole of The Open Championship on Thursday. He had a tap in bogey that he blew past the hole and then went to backhand the ball in and missed the putt again. I’m not sure what Ernie was thinking here, but that’s not the best […]
The post Ernie Els Misses Two Putts Inside Of One Foot, Records Triple Bogey appeared first on Diehardsport.
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 […]
Ernie Els is changing equipment again after signing a new deal with Adams Golf.

No, the photo above is not of professional golf titans Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els as awkward teenagers — duh — I’m simply building up the drama before the big reveal below of a photo that recently has surfaced of a 14-year-old FIGJAM and a 15-year-old version of The Big Easy posing with their trophies [...]
Anyone who took the 40-to-1 odds on Adam Scott to win the British Open before last weekend must have been feeling great about their wager entering the final four holes of the tournament. Even if you put a measly 10 bucks down you probably would have already decided what you were going to do with your $400 when Scott had a four-shot lead over Ernie Els. As we know, Scott collapsed...
A bettor reportedly was the benefactor of Adam Scott's epic collapse and Ernie Els' improbable win at the British Open after laying down a $70 bet on the Big Easy.
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...
