Not 1, not 2, Not 3, Not 4, Not 5, Not 6! 7! 7 putts to get that in.
Brutal start for Ernie Els on the first hole of The Masters. The 10 score is the highest ever on the first hole at Augusta. Not exactly the kind of history Big Ern was looking to make Im sure.
I would expect something like that from a hack like me. Well actually I would have just picked it up after the first couple missed putts, called it an 8 and finished my beer on the way to the next tee.
But for a long time pro, and a 4 time major champ, just dont see that too often.
Looks like hes pretty much stayed around even the rest of the round, give a couple, take a couple. Props for him for not just calling it a day and faking some kind of injury.
