Well, crap. Ernie Els got pooped on in the final round of The Players. Literally. As he was picking up his ball from the cup after making a bogey on the first hole, a bird happened to drop what appeared to be a massive load on him.
Els took it in stride and laughed it off with his caddie and playing partner Justin Rose, as he tried to clean himself up with a towel. I’ve always heard that getting pooped on by a bird was good luck, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for Els on Sunday. He went on to post a three-over 75.
You know what they say, though: shit happens!
