Ernie Els


Q. Ernie didn't even think he would tee it up today. Yesterday you pulled out of the Pro-Am. You actually went to the hospital. You thought you had a kidney stone. What was the diagnose?
ERNIE ELS: Nothing. I got an L-10. That's my normal problem. And normally the pain shoots into my left side and the pain was kind of on the -- on my back and went to the right. I thought maybe it's a kidney stone. Pretty sure. I guess I'm just a wuss. They say kidney stones are really, really painful. Luckily nothing wrong. Tom in the fitness trailer is working on me. A muscle spasm.

Q. You swung beautifully out there today. You shoot a 64. That's the lowest number you shot on the PGA TOUR this season. What does a round like this do for your confidence?
ERNIE ELS: Yeah. I haven't played with a lot of confidence. You can't play this game without, I think, confidence. I didn't have the most perfect warmup into the week. I felt good this morning and my putter felt great. I kind of like the course. Just a little bit of patience and experience. Played quite nicely.

Q. Congratulations on a great day. Be aware of the injured golfer.
ERNIE ELS: Thank you
