Ernie Els yips another putt, his second in less than a month at the CIMB Classic and it's tough to watch

October 30, 2015

Poor Ernie Els.

The four-time major champ used to be one of the best players in the world. Now, we're talking about the second video of him yipping a putt in the same month. Ouch. We feel bad for Ernie. This looks to be the full-blown yips.

The putt took place on Friday at the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic. And it might be even worse than the first -- as if that was possible.

Just three years ago, Els was on top of the game again after winning the 2012 Open Championship. Ernie hasn't been known as a great putter in the last five to six years -- although he putted tremendously as an amateur.

Has Els joined the likes of greats such as Ben Hogan and Sam Snead to have lost their putting strokes later in their career? Gosh, after watching these two videos, it's hard to convince yourself otherwise. We all hit bad putts, but these two are on another level.
