At 42, Els still relishing first major win in 10 years
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Ernie Els returns to Kiawah Island for the PGA Championship as a major champion, the same status he carried the last time he was there.
He was the U.S. Open winner in 1997, earning his second major at age 27. He came here that fall to represent South Africa in the World Cup. The rest of the week was a blur. He vaguely remembers the Ocean Course, only that it was hard.
“I think they designed that course for match play,” he said with a grin.
