Ernie Els is elated over his victory yesterday in South Africa. Here’s part of what he said on his blog:

“This will be my last website report of 2006, so I’ll make this an overview of how the season was for me. Obviously I’m a very happy man this morning. Since I returned to competitive golf just over 12 months ago, after injuring my knee following the 2005 British Open, I’ve basically been playing patch-up golf. I mean, as hard as I tried it just wasn’t happening for me. It was frustrating. The SAA Open was my last chance to set the record straight. Now I’ve done that the relief is immense. This win couldn’t have come at a better time. I just want to take this opportunity to thank the fans at Humewood. You were great. Trust me, the support really means a lot to me.”

But here’s the best part from Ernie — he wants Tiger

“I see 2007 is the start of a three-year plan, where I totally re-dedicate myself to the game. I want to win more majors and start giving Tiger a run for his money. If you look at where he is at the top of the world rankings, it’s a big lead so no one is going to get near him any time soon. I’ve got to give myself a three-year stretch to try to approach him and I really believe I can do it. I wouldn’t be out here if I didn’t.”

Good luck, Ernie, you’re going to need it!
