GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Ernie Els will turn 42 this year, but thanks to a swing kissed by heaven, he still has time to add to his 70 worldwide wins and three majors. Ernie is one of the few players in the world who is far better on Sunday than he is on Thursday, thanks to experience and a magical wedge. But to bag another major he needs to putt better inside five feet.
