Ernie Els lives in Fancourt, South Africa. He also lives in Orlando, Fla. This means that Els is qualified to bring us today's geography lesson, otherwise known as How-to-Get-Here-From-There. To begin with, he played the Heineken Classic in Perth, Australia, three weeks ago, which is a really nice tournament except when you have to get home from there. Els flew from Perth to Singapore, Singapore to London and London to Orlando. Total air time: 23 hours. Total distance: 13,513 miles.

He was in the echoes. He was in the stares. He was in their heads. It was one-on-five at Augusta National playground Sunday, a completely unfair game, because the one was five, and Tiger Woods was everywhere. He was in Ernie Els' backswing when, on the 13th hole, the smart and composed Els tried to hack a ball through a tree trunk. Triple bogey. Timber! He was in Vijay Singh's grip when, on the 15th hole, the serene and steady Singh tried to teach a ball to swim. Quadruple bogey.
