Golf: Els changes mind, decides to play Memorial
DUBLIN, Ohio — Ernie Els changed his mind today and will play in the Memorial, a tournament he won four years ago.
Els surprised tournament officials yesterday with a posting on his Web site that he would not play again until next week in the Stanford St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tenn.
But he changed that posting today.
"Originally, this week was going to be a gap in my schedule, but I've changed my mind and decided to play in the Memorial," Els said.
It's the second time this year Els thought twice about a tournament. He said he would not play in the Accenture Match Play Championship outside Tucson, Ariz., then changed his mind on the final day. He lost in the first round.
