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.
Good to see the debate is still logical.
