He’s a 2-time U.S. Open Champion, but Ernie’s still steaming mad over his 80 on the last day of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock. He blames it on the USGA for tricking up the course.

Tom Meeks, USGA official, said, “I think a lot of golfers lost their patience and gave up early in the round. I really think Ernie Els gave up after the first hole.”

This made Els — normally, The Big Easy — go absolutely ballistic. “How do you give up?” Els said. “That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard in my life. I’ve never given up on any round of golf in my life. If I did give up, I would have shot 100. You know what? They have got no idea. They’ve lost the plot in the story. To take one of the best golf courses in this entire world and to make it a farce like that, they’ve got egg on their face.”

Whether or not this is just whining, I think Ernie will be fired up to play Royal Troon.
