Els' Cut Streak Is Impressive


Some might say I'm an Ernie Els apologist. I like the guy, and he has tons of game. However, this year he hasn't won anything in the U.S. He's played well off and on, but much of the year was spent trying to regain confidence after his knee surgery.

He's playing this week in Tampa, and he really likes the course, so he has as good a shot as anyone of winning. But one thing of which I'm almost certain is that he'll make the cut. Ernie currently leads the Tour with 40 consecutive cuts made. The next best on Tour is Robert Allenby with 19.

People made huge deal over Tiger's streak of 100+ consecutive cuts made. Yet, I never hear anything about Els' consistency over the last 40 tournaments. Maybe he needs to win a few for people to catch on to this tremendous streak. I'm hoping he wins soon and gets back into the mix of chasing Tiger for #1 in the world. It'll be a whole lot more fun with Ernie at the top of his game.

I agree JG. I love Ernie. He seems like such a stand up guy. Not everyone on tour can be as popular as Tiger and that is the media's fault. If I were to teach someone the golf swing, I would look no further than Ernie Els. It is a thing of beauty. He just hasn't made any putts this year. Ernie will keep making cuts and we will hear about it soon.

If you were to teach someone the golf swing, all you'd need to do is show them your high school recruiting video. Any chance you could digitize it so we can post it to the blog?

"That was a 6-iron. About 170. Next I'm going to hit a cut."

Great stuff!
