Profile: Ernie Els

Name: Ernie Els

Age: 50

From: South Africa

Previous Australian Open form: At his only start he was third in 2001 behind Stuart Appleby at The Grand.

Primary Tour: US PGA Tour

Career wins: 19 (US), 47 (International)

Comment: Colloquially known as ‘The Big Easy’, Els made nine cuts in the US this year even though his best is behind him. A winner of four majors, he is in Australia to captain the Presidents Cup team but will create plenty of interest at The Australian along the way.
