It won’t be Ernie Els wrapping his hands around the Fedex Cup or the 10 million dollar check. Els has struggled in every round at Eastlake this week. This is going to be one Tour Championship Els will want to forget. The man they call the Big easy hasn’t found anything easy this weekend. Ernie Els is presently 16 strokes off the lead in the Tour Championship. Els has been over par in all 3 of the rounds he has played, that is something I can’t recall Ernie doing in the past.
His found round of 2 over 72 didn’t seem that bad. Then Ernie really came apart in his second round posting a 5 over par round of 74. Today in his 3rd round Ernie again was over par, he finished his 3rd round at 1 over 71. Ernie Els is finding Eastlake golf Club in Atlanta Georgia extremely difficult this week.Els is just 3 strokes ahead of last place currently. It is a good thing there isn’t a cut in the Tour Championship or Ernie Els would already be on his way home.Ernie hope of claiming the Fedex Cup disappeared once he posted the 75 in the second round, this isn’t the Els we all have come to know.
