Ernie Els


Q.テつ Talk us through the last shot.
ERNIE ELS:テつ Yeah, that was really nice.テつ I thought I couldn't quite get to the green.テつ I had 270 from the fairway, and was just trying to get it in the bunker.テつ I saw the flag was in the front.テつ But I didn't expect it to go in, so that was a real nice bonus.

Q.テつ 14 new clubs in the bag, Rory McIlroy did that and was much criticized; you must know what you're doing.テつ Tell us.
ERNIE ELS:テつ I love the equipment (chuckles).テつ Just everything about Adams.テつ I haven't had a lot of time, my contract started the first of January, so that's maybe why I didn't play Durban and Abu Dhabi.テつ I felt like I wasn't quite going to be ready.テつ So I played in South Africa some social golf, and started really feeling comfortable.テつ And it really feels great.テつ I mean, I even feel like the driver is nice, I'm hitting it a little further I think.テつ I was hitting it with the young boys today.テつ The hybrids are nice, and you know, let get that putter warm, I think we're going to have a nice year.
So I'm really excited.テつ It's like a man with new toys.テつ I'm quite excited about the year.

Q.テつ You mentioned the driver.テつ I joined you on the 7th and you seemed to rip it 300 yards down the middle.
ERNIE ELS:テつ Yeah, I've been struggling with the driver the last couple of years, so to find one that goes and I can move it right‑to‑left, at will, and I don't really have to work hard to move it right‑to‑left, I can hit the whole shot.テつ I don't want to say too much if it's a nice round with new equipment but I'm really looking forward to the next couple of rounds.
