I couldn’t watch it. A tweet showed up yesterday afternoon declaring that Ernie Els had seven-putted (later downgraded to six putts) the first hole at Augusta National. I re-tweeted it but I would not watch the video.
I felt so bad for him. (The Golf Channel replayed it like CNN constantly replays videos of disasters caused by hurricanes and bombs, so I eventually saw it.)
It was a yipper’s disaster. The nightmare realized. The South African veteran has been struggling with the yips, and Augusta National’s slick greens strike fear in yippers’ hearts.
