ERNIE ELS: Yeah. I birdied 10. I hit a drive in the pouring rain, hit it about 250 yards. Then my second shot, I had 268 to the front, and for some reason the wind changed on me and I hit it about 20 yards short of the green and I hit a really good pitch out of the bunker about seven feet and holed that for birdie.
11, I hit a 7-iron, too much club, went through the green. Hit a good chip shot from behind the green to about four feet and missed it. Hit an awful putt there.
I parred the next two.
14th, par 3, I hit 5-iron to about ten feet behind the hole and made that.
15, I hit a drive and a pitching wedge to about four feet, made that for birdie.
17, I hit a driver, 3-wood just short of the green, pitched it up there and tapped it in from a couple of inches.
18, I hit it short right, the second shot, and made a good putt for par. I made a good nine, ten feet there.
Q. Does it feel like a while since you've won?
ERNIE ELS: Yeah, I haven't won since The Memorial, end of May, so it's been a while. We'll see how it goes. I've put myself in position. Depending on the conditions, we'll see. Let's talk Sunday. I mean, I'm leading at the moment, but leading right now doesn't mean much. We've got a lot of golf to be played and I've got a lot of birdies to be made.
RODDY WILLIAMS: Thank you, Ernie.
