63 shots: Phil Mickelson’s run at history

Note: Due to other obligations, I was not able to watch Phil Mickelson’s opening round at the British Open. I knew the final score, but I was not aware of how it occurred, so I decided to write this running diary as I followed along with the coverage. #1. At about 8:26 AM on the East Coast, Phil Mickelson began his Open Championship with an iron from the first tee. Nick Faldo began...

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. After a six-putt 9 on Hole No. 1 during his first round at the Masters Thursday — it was originally recorded as a seven-putt 10, but later corrected — Els found himself right back where his...

Ernie Els sets Masters record with Sextuple Bogey on first hole

Sometimes it’s just not your day. That was exactly the case for Ernie Els in the opening round of the 2016 Masters, as he struggled immensely right out of the gate on the first hole. Els was a two-foot putt away from finishing with a bogey to start the day. Getting a bogey would have been a tough start for Els, but he could have overcome it. Instead of just a bogey however,...

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.
