Tough times for the Big Easy

The last two years on the golf course haven’t been a walk in the park for Ernie Els, a three-time major champion. For a few hours on Sunday afternoon at Innisbrook’s Copperhead course, Els had a chance to break his two-year win-less streak on the PGA Tour, but he stumbled coming down the stretch, missing short putts and bogeying two of the last three holes at the Transitions Championship.

Westy insists he's not playing for second

Never count out Lee Westwood at a major championship — even after he posts a dreadful first-round four-over 75. He suddenly appeared on the leaderboard late Saturday afternoon. He seemed to be hitting it well when I saw him on several holes on the front nine, but the flatstick was failing him. But he got hot after rolling in a birdie on No. 13. And then two more on Nos. 14 and 15. Following three consecutive birdies, he put an exclamation mark on his run with an eagle at the 16th.

Day: Clutch at Augusta!

Less than a year ago, Jason Day backed into his first PGA Tour victory, chunking a shot into the water on the 72nd hole, at the Byron Nelson Championship. (Luckily, moments later, Blake Adams followed him in the drink.) And in February, Day was so unhappy that he felt like he “was going to quit.” Two months later, playing in his first Masters, the 23-year-old Australian threatened the course record at Augusta with a 64 in the third round and then staged a back nine run to nearly win.

Add Ernie Els to the growing list of PGA Tour players that may jump on the long putter bandwagon. Els started toying around with a belly putter while practicing at the Masters a few weeks ago. At The Heritage this week, he might take it a step further and actually put it in his bag for tournament play on Thursday. While those close to Els have been encouraging him to make the change, he’s been reluctant for several reasons, including overcoming the stigma attached to long putters.

“I’m old school,” Els said during a candid chat on Tuesday at Harbour Town Golf Links. “I’ve been around a long time and it used to be that whenever you go to a long putter, it meant that you had the yips or you had something really wrong with your putting.”
