Unpredictability and Open Championships go hand in hand, yet no one could have dreamed up a scenario where Ernie Els kissed the Claret Jug after Adam Scott's monumental collapse Sunday, writes ESPN.com's Gene Wojciechowski.
The Masters doesn't start until Thursday. But with the help of his wife and their remarkable 8-year-old son, Ernie Els is already on the leaderboard in the fight against autism.
It's been said that Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen comprise the Big Five. Maybe it should be the Big One and the Little Four.
Even Ernie Els thought Retief Goosen was a lock. But as Gene Wojciechowski notes it didn't turn out that way.
Phil Mickelson? Ernie Els? Sergio Garcia? Somebody please give Tiger Woods a run for his money.
