Big Easy not finding life so simple

6:16 am on 9 July 2009

The South African golfer Ernie Els says he must work on his anger management in order to rekindle the magic that earned three major championships.

The smooth-swinging player known as the 'Big Easy' has found it difficult to cope with a form slump in recent years that means he no longer occupies a place in the world's top 20.

Els is playing in this weekend's Scottish Open the warm-up event for next week's British Open at Turnberry.

The world number 23 says he's been losing his patience, which a player can't do. as he searchers, perhaps a little too much for the perfect swing, the perfect putting stroke, the perfect drive

But he says he hasn't lost his desire to add to his 60 tournament wins.
