Caption This: Els reigns at Doral

leave a comment »

So Ernie Els won the CA Championship, huh? There must be something about the state of Florida that brings out the best in the South African’s game. His last win? 2008 at the Honda Classic. Maybe it has something to do with the tournament being a home game for Els, who makes his home just four hours away in Orlando, Fla.

For his win, Els received a trophy that looked like it was stolen from the Ming Dynasty, as well as a hefty paycheck for his time. But he also received another massive honor: having his picture plastered on the front page of From the Rough, arms hoisted to the sky in victory, as well as the distinct pleasure of being captioned in our inaugural ‘Caption This’ competition. Trust me, it’s a big deal.

So go ahead and give us your best caption for what Els is doing in the above photo. The winner gets a sleeve of used Tour Balata’s and a half-eaten Mrs Fields cookie from 2008 (the year Els won the Honda Classic).
