It would be an understatement to say Ernie Els got off to a bad start to his opening round of the 2016 Masters. In fact no one has ever got off to such a bad start in the history of the Masters.
Els sent his drive off the first tee over on to the adjoining fairway. From there he would need to shots to get within three feet of the hole on the opening par-4.
And from there is got bad. Excruciatingly bad.
Els this six-putted to card the worst ever score on a hole at The Masters: a quintuple-bogey 9. This hurts everyone.
Note this was originally reported as seven putts but was later deemed to be just the six.
