The legend of Ernie Els, who played more than 2,000 professional rounds and led the majors for 14 years, is not without precedent.
Els, whose legend was established in the 1950s when he won the British Open and Masters, has been widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all time.
In 2016, his legend was enshrined in a museum in Florida and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
Elers golfing career also included an international tour, including his first trip to the United States.
He won the Open at Pebble Beach in 2020, and was named the most successful golf player in history in 2017.
Eles’ legend is not new.
It is a matter of record that he was born in 1926 in Woking, England, to English father and German mother, and that he grew up in London, England.
In his autobiography, “The Tiger’s Tale,” published in 1974, Els told of his childhood: “The house was built in the middle of a swamp, and the whole family had to live on the back porch.
We used to ride the back horses to school.
My dad was a carpenter, my mum a maid.
We were all very poor.”
Els grew up with his two older brothers, George and George Els of London.
They had to work at their father’s shop.
Elses father, George, who died in 1960, also had a strong influence on Els.
George and his father were very strict in how they raised their children.
George’s daughter, Helen, told the BBC in 2016: “He would say ‘You can’t be a bit of a fool, you can’t go around being like this.
You must be in your own way.’
I think that shaped Ernie’s character.”
Eles, who was born on June 7, 1926, was the third of seven children, all of whom played golf.
His father, a factory worker, worked for a steel mill.
When Ernie was about four years old, he started playing golf.
At the age of 10, Elers played the sport himself, and he won his first major in 1923.
He was the first British player to win a major, and won the US Open on March 14, 1924, at Lakehurst.
He finished third that year, behind Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklas.
He lost the US Championship to Nicklas in 1925, but won the European Championship that year at Stuttgart.
He had a double victory at the British Opens that year.
In 1927, he won two majors, including the British Masters, and also made the British Fours in 1930 and 1931.
In 1931, Eles won the Australian Open, his first in the sport, as well as the US Amateur Championship, the French Open, and a French Open.
In 1933, he lost to Nicklaus in the final round of the American Amateur.
At that time, he was the top-ranked golfer in the world and the only one in the top 50.
He also won a number of tournaments, including two majors.
In 1936, he became the youngest ever winner of the PGA Tour’s “Great American Golf Tournament,” and won seven major titles.
In 1937, he went on to win the Pardon, the British Amateur and the British, American and European Amateur, and became the first to win four majors.
Els then won the Pilsen Open in 1939, and in 1942, he took home the Pigeon Forge Memorial Cup.
In 1946, he reached the final of the British and US Opens, as he won all three major titles at St Andrews.
He went on in 1947 to win six majors, a career high for a British player.
In 1948, he finished second to Tiger Woods in the British Tour Championship.
In 1949, he played in the US Ryder Cup, and after winning the tournament, he received the Jack Nickles Memorial Cup for the tournament.
In 1950, he led the Masters by one stroke in his second major victory.
In 1951, he made history as the first player to take out the Masters for the first time.
He later won a second major title and two Masters titles in 1952 and 1954.
He made his final major in 1956, winning the Masters.
Elsey went on several tour events throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s.
In 1952, he held the Patels Masters title and finished in the Top 20 in all three majors.
He followed that with a third Masters title in 1954.
In 1955, he missed out on the British Grand Slam, but made his second career Grand Slam appearance and won two titles in 1956 and 1957.
In 1957, he set the record for the most consecutive victories in a season with five.
In 1960, he hit the record, breaking his own record of six, but missed out again in the Australian Tour.
In 1960, Elsey took the lead at the Masters, as the field was still
