VIDEO: Ernie Els Casually 7-Putts Hole One At The Masters In Humiliating Display


As bad a putter as I am (along with pretty much every other amateur golfer), not even I would’ve done what Ernie Els did on the first hole of the Masters. What exactly happened? Well, if the title didn’t give it away, let my boss Dorn tell it to you straight.

Yup. One green, seven putts. Six of them within two feet. TWO FEET!!!

Cringeworthy stuff right there. It’s got to make you feel like an inbred fucknugget when it takes you 6 tries to get the ball into the hole from within two feet when you’ve already proven you can get it in from 384 feet in one try.

The Big Easy making it look hard out there.

    Happens to the best of us….although mine usually occur in my alumni high school football fundraiser golf outing. But props to Ernie for pulling out the TFM power move by doing it at the masters.

    I don’t know if he drank too much beforehand, but he definitely will tonight.

      I’m gonna take a stab in the dark here and guess he didn’t drink beforehand.

      You guys should read deeper into this and take it more literally. I couldn’t be more serious here.

    The total round [scoring wise] being ruined on the first hole. TFM. Not letting it stop you from moving forwards enthusiastically. RFM.

    I offered Big Ern the beer in my left fist last year. He said it’s about time for a beer. We’re now best friends. This was horrifying…gotta love the fuckin Masters.

    Something about his face is so punchable. That said, he is in the Hall of Fame, go’head and grab a cold one and watch from the clubhouse, Els. You’ve “Ern-ed” it.

    …I’ll see myself out.
