Ernie Els Just 7-Putted The First Hole At The Masters And The Video Is Equal Parts Sad And Hilarious


John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It’s no secret that Ernie Els has recently struggled with his putting, especially from short range. Some might even argue that he has a severe case of the dreaded YIPS. And after watching him take SEVEN putts, six of which were inside of two feet, on his first hole of the Masters, I think I might agree with that whole “this poor bastard has got the yips” argument.

The shot tracker from is just as difficult to look at as the video.



Brutal. Like, “there’s no fucking way he’s coming back from that” kind of brutal.
