Els makes a balls-up - again

"If it's not going to happen, it's not going to happen," he said.

"What can you do? I'm just beating my head against the wall every time.

"I've had a good attitude and the game was there (this year). Everything was there. We just don't gel.

"It has done it to a bunch of people and I'm probably one of them. I mean, go down the list - (Tom) Weiskopf, (Greg) Norman, (Johnny) Miller and many, many others.
