Big Easy look­ing to roll back the years

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - SNAPCHAT -

It’s been eight years since South African golfer Ernie Els won the last of his five SA Open ti­tles. How­ever, the 49-year-old has not given up hope of adding to his sil­ver­ware col­lec­tion af­ter shoot­ing an open­ing round five­un­der-par 66 on the Bush­wil­low course at Rand­park Golf Club on Thurs­day. He fol­lowed it up yesterday with a level-par 71. Els won the tour­na­ment for the first time in 1992, and fol­lowed it up with wins in 1996, 1998, 2006 and 2010. Rand­park last hosted the SA Open in 2000 when Swe­den’s Mathias Grön­berg won it.
