FEBRUARY 2, 2017

By Steve Elling

Ernie Els pushed the cap back on his head, blinked, did a double-take and grinned. 

As he mashed balls into the gloaming in Dubai a couple of years back, Els noticed a familiar face on the practice tee, one he hadn’t expected in such a far-flung locale.

That made it unanimous.
