Els sees Woods breaking Nicklaus' majors record

As the years have gone by, people have expressed doubt that Tiger Woods will surpass Jack Nicklaus' record for major victories. Apparently four-time major winner Ernie Els isn’t one.

BETHESDA, Md. – Everybody, of course, seems to have an opinion on whether Tiger Woods will break Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major-championship titles.

Now age 38, Woods has been stuck on 14 for six years.

As the years have gone by, more and more people have expressed doubt that Woods will surpass Nicklaus.

Apparently four-time major winner Ernie Els isn’t one of them.

“He’s got the strongest mind out here,” Els said of Woods on Wednesday before the PGA Tour's 2014 Quicken Loans National, in which Woods will make his return from back surgery. “So I think with that in mind, I think he’s got a real good chance of still breaking Jack Nicklaus’ record.”
