There's no rest for the winners either. The Open Championship seems like a long time ago for Ernie Els.
The Big Easy has not been taking it so easy since he plundered the Claret Jug in memorable circumstances at Royal Lytham in July and has been chiselling away on the PGA Tour in the US. "I would love a break," admitted the 42-year-old South African, ahead of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. "It seems like I've been busy ever since the Open. This is my job, but sometimes you just need a little bit of time off. I haven't had any time to reflect [on the Open win] and I've had to do it on the road."
