Ernie Els’ NSFW Start To The Masters Will Make You Cringe

They say the Masters doesn’t start until the back nine on Sunday, but for Ernie Els, his tournament was over before he reached the second tee. After missing the first green, Els hit a solid chip to three feet and looked to be escaping the opening hole with a par four.

Instead, the unthinkable happen. A train wreck. You couldn’t look away. Originally scored a sextuple-bogey 10 after a 7-putt, the carnage was later amended to a simple 5-over par 9 on the first hole spanning six putts. 

With no video originally, here’s how fans saw his hole play out…

And Twitter reacted accordingly.

The Big Easy fought back valiantly, playing the next 17 holes in respectable 2-over par fashion. But the damage had been done. He’d been Crying Jordan Meme’d.
