Yips return for Ernie Els at Masters, misses two-foot putt Friday (vid)

To say that Ernie Els is suffering through a horrible bout with the putting yips — or as he put it, the “heebie jeebies” — would be a drastic and perhaps even tragic understatement.

Ernie Els seven-putted for a 10 at the Masters (Video)
