After eagling the 72nd hole to come from behind and win in Dubai, Els spoke about Tiger, tees and flying first-class
Q: Can you remember the last time you made an eagle on 18 to win?
EE: I can't remember that. You'd have to look it up.
Q: How long was that putt?
EE: I don't know. It had to be six or seven yards.
Q: How much break did it have?
EE: It had a bit of a swing, probably six balls outside left. It was downhill, quite fast. I was a little tentative on a couple of putts today, but on that one I felt good for some reason. I could see the line and got it on line. It was a great feeling when it went in.
Q: Miguel Angel Jimenez three-putted the last green to open the door for you. Could you understand what he was going through after missing?
EE: I've been there many times, and I've lost a lot of tournaments like that. I know what he's going through now, and it's not nice.
Q: How important was it to send a message to Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh?
