Briefly, during the telecast it was stated that Els would give Mickelson a gift for going on a family vacation instead of playing Match Play. I cannot remember what the type of gift since Faldo mentioned it quickly.
It is nice to see Els advance to the second round but I do not think he'll be the one holding the Walter Hagen cup on Sunday.
NO, because TW will !
But Tiger have to play better tommorow and the rest of the week, today was a warm up!!
Donald came in as the favorite, Els came in rusty. It's a pretty simple dynamic.
I don't see why you're so upset. Ernie Els has been knocked out 5 times in the first round of this tournament, including a collective struggle with his overall game as of late.
Luke Donald is #1, and came into the tournament as #1 in putting within 10 ft... a very important statistic in this format.
I'm using empirical data to justify my statements, not some biased Tiger fanboyism logic that you seem to have already asserted. Don't worry about wasting your time, you've been wasting it for hours and I'm sure you'll be wasting more tomorrow.
