British Open Notebook: Time for Els to Step Up

Yesterday Ernie Els matched Tiger's 65 after Woods had posted 12 under at the halfway mark of the British Open. Els teed off eight shots back and played a masterful round to enter round three just one off the pace.

Let's see what Ernie can do playing with Tiger today in the final pairing. It's been a long road back for Els after his knee surgery.

Can Ernie meet the challenge of playing in the pressure cooker with Tiger? It will be fun to watch.

Hell yeah he can. If there were ever a time for Ernie to pull a head an win, this is it.

Both Tiger and Ernie shot "uninspired" rounds today. Garcia burned it up though. We'll have to wait for tommorrow to see it play out.
