AUGUSTA, Ga. – Ernie Els has been in this position before, but with a rate of success that is lower than the South African expects. Els stayed steady Friday in the second round of the Masters to post an even-par 72 that included a relatively equal amount of mistakes and successes.
The lowlights of his round included a mis-club on the par-4 fifth, coming up short on the par-4 seventh...
Anyone that has played golf at one time or another has felt like whacking a tree with a club till it snapped or what Rory McIlroy did recently. The game can be frustrating as hell and it can be rather satisfying to destroy the source of the frustration (because it has to be the club; can't be you). However, most of us hold back because clubs are expensive.That isn't why Ernie Els...
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 […]

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 […]
MARANA, Ariz. -- The love-hate relationship Ernie Els has with the Match Play Championship is taking a major turn for the better.
Els made a birdie from the desert on the par-5 eighth hole to take the lead for good Saturday against 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, reaching the semifinals in this fickle tournament for the first time in 13 years.
It was the first time all week that Els made...
Ernie Els hardly ever catches a break at the Match Play Championship.
When the first edition was held in 1999 at La Costa, he was trailing Paul Azinger going to the 18th hole when his tee shot caught the worst of lies in the rough.
And it didn't get much better after that.
He lost in the second round a year later to Bob Estes by missing a 4-foot putt on the last hole. He once...

Four time major champion and world golf hall of famer Ernie Els looks to cut down on his schedule from next season on according to the legendary Sky Sports. If he goes on with his plans then this could very well mean the possible end of a truly remarkable career no doubt. He’s quietly been slowing down on his schedule already as he only played only 19...

The four-time major winner has already slowed down over the past few years and played 19 tournaments on the U.S. PGA Tour and just seven solely European Tour events last season.
The 44-year-old Els says he expects that to be trimmed again as ''it's always been difficult leaving the...
