Ernie Els is a two-time winner of the Open Championship, with his first coming in 2002 at Muirfield, and the second won at Royal Lytham & St Annes a decade later. I’m not going to promise that as another decade comes to a close the Big Easy is a likely pick to win, but it’s always fun to look inside the golf bag of one of the game’s greatest ambassadors — especially ahead of the Open Championship.
