Els aims for the history books in the Heineken Classic
Ernie Els has developed the happy knack of defending a title successfully over the years, but only once in his illustrious career has he won a tournament three times in a row. Now the South African aims to emulate his three successive HSBC World Match Play titles between 1994 and 1996 by capturing his third consecutive Heineken Classic at Royal Melbourne Golf Club, Australia, this week.

Els on Fire with Superb 60 in Heineken Classic

The 2003 Volvo Order of Merit winner threatened to break the 60 barrier, but a dropped shot at the 15th meant that the first 59 on The European Tour International Schedule remains frustratingly elusive.
