No AT&T for Els

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Coming off of a disappointing U.S. Open, it appears that Ernie Els has had a change of heart about the upcoming AT&T National at a course that holds a special place in his heart: Congressional CC.

Having previously indicated he would play in the tournament, Els announced on his website that “the Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond (July 9-12) is my next tournament , followed straight after that by the Open Championship at Turnberry.”

Added Els: “That’s a doubleheader that I’m really looking forward to.”

But apparently, he's not looking forward to a triple-header, even though the AT&T National (July 2-5) is hosted by Tiger Woods at a course where Els in 1997 won his second U.S. Open.
