Q. Your second shot on No. 5 into like 16 inches.
ERNIE ELS: That one? That was like a pitching wedge.
ERNIE ELS: Only frickin' birdie I made all day. Glad you saw that.
Q. You were putting yourself in position to.
ERNIE ELS: Yeah, I think the one that I really got a little angry with is the par� 5 up the hill there. My chip shot, I mean, was just a little bit soft and didn't go down the hill and I made five.
If I think if I made four there it could have been a little bit different momentum. I felt I needed to get something going. When that didn't go I was a little angry at myself. But I gave myself good opportunities, and then I missed some greens again.
All in all, I'll take 71. It's not the best start, but it's not the worst start. I can get into the 60s the next three rounds.
