Ernie Els


Q.  Very disappointed, Ernie Els; what happened after that drive on the 18th hole?
ERNIE ELS:  What happened?  Well, I pulled my second left and I chipped it up there.  Didn't have a great lie on my third shot and I pulled my putt.

Q.  Did you have the confidence to make that putt before there?
ERNIE ELS:  Yeah, I guess so.  I just pulled it a bit.

Q.  Great job through the first 14 holes, let's talk about those putts that did go in early on.
ERNIE ELS:  Yeah, played good golf today.  I just hit one bad shot.  That was on 17.  It was a bit of a wait there and lost my rhythm and hit a bad shot there.  Then obviously missed a short putt on 18.

Q.  You got a great break on the ball on 17, it actually gave you somewhat of a lie, somewhat of a shot, even though you were short‑sided?
ERNIE ELS:  No, I had no shot.  I was in the tent or whatever it was.  I had no shot.

Q.  On 18, you made a birdie early in the green, it's a diabolical green, isn't it.
ERNIE ELS:  Yeah, it's a difficult green.  You know, I pulled my second left, as I said to Steve, and chipped it up to three or four feet.  You know, I was trying to just jam it in there and I pulled it.

Q.  I know you're really disappointed but what great ball‑striking, you have to take something good away from this.
ERNIE ELS:  It's going to be tough.  I'm pretty hot now, and it's difficult to talk with a straight head here.  Yeah, if I take stock, I think I'm playing good golf, and I've got to head into the next couple of weeks trying to get a win.
