Els breaks through at Doral

March 14, 2010

Ernie Els won his first worldwide tournament in 1 year today at Doral. He didn’t win at all last year despite coming close. He  held of fellow countryman, Charl Schwartlz. Charl had won 2 tournaments on the european tour this year so some considered him th favorite. Sadly he couldn’t hold of  The Big Easy. The spot where I realized it was Els’ day was when Schwartlz hit the ball from one bunker to the other on the 13th hole.  Then when Schwartlz hit the tree on his punch out on 17 and Els hit it stiff it was game over. This is els first PGA tour win since the 2008 Honda classic. Hopefully this will be Els’ first multi-win year since 2004 on the PGA tour. As for Schwartlz, I think he will be a great player and Americans should start learning how to pronounce his name now. Anyways, Congrats The Big Easy!
