Els delivers on autograph promise


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – The New York galleries, gotta love'em.

Ernie Els was walking off the driving range Tuesday afternoon here at the U.S. Open when a woman asked the Big Easy for an autograph. He politely declined and continued walking.
Then she belted out in a thick New York accent, 'Hey, but you promised me earlier that you'd sign.'

Els chuckled and obliged for the lone request.

Then the man standing next to the woman retorted with, 'Hey Ernie, don't worry about it. She promises me stuff all the time and doesn't deliver.'

And it's only Tuesday here folks. . .
