Back to back wins for Els going into Masters

7:23 am on 30 March 2010

The South African golfer Ernie Els will go into next week's Masters with back-to-back wins on the PGA Tour.

Els survived a shaky finish to win the weather-delayed Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida this morning, finishing two shots clear of the Italian Eduardo Molinari, and the South Korea-born American Kevin Na.

Until his victory two weeks ago in a World Series event, Els had gone winless for two years on the PGA tour.
