Ernie’s Career in the Majors

07 Aug

Ernie Els made his Major debut as an amateur in the 1989 Open Championship at Royal Troon. At the 2017 PGA Championship he competed in his 100th Major.

In so doing, Ernie became only the 13th man in the history of the game to reach the magic ‘100 Majors’ mark. He has four Major victories – 2002 & 2012 Open Championship, 1994 & 1997 US Open (pictured below) – and has finished in the top-10 on 35 occasions, an impressive 35% strike rate.
