The Big Easy report

Ernie Els is, hands down, the best blogger among the pros. He does so regularly, and with very detailed posts. This week, Ernie has a lot to say here about the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond and the upcoming British Open at Holyake. But here’s the real story:

Before I get on to what’s happening this week, I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the boys and girls from the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation who last weekend won the inaugural Friendship Cup against the team from Tiger’s Foundation. And they won it in some style, too. Sounds like the team made a storming start on the first day, then got a touch of the jitters on the second day, which gave Tiger’s team a fighting chance going into the final day’s singles matches. But my boys and girls rallied together and put in a fantastic team performance, not losing one of the eight individual matches out there. The end result was a convincing 12 1/2 – 3 1/2 from the possible 16 points up for grabs. Well done!

These type of matches are a great experience for young golfers and hopefully everyone on both sides will have learnt some valuable lessons – you know, something to help them take their games to the next level. And hopefully they had some fun, too. That’s what it’s all about.I also want to thank Tiger for taking time out of his schedule to present the team trophy at the end of the matches. I know how much that will have meant to all the kids; it will have been an inspirational moment and I’m sure they will remember it for the rest of their lives.

Tiger and his team will have a chance to turn the tables when the Friendship Cup comes to Fancourt in 2007.
