Don’t know much about omens, but Ernie Els getting ???? on by a bird after making bogey at 1 seems like a bad one.https://t.co/2hsKo45spQ

There’s nothing worse than getting off to a bad start. Unfortunately Ernie’s troubles were just beginning as he picked up his ball for a bogey on the first. An opportunistic bird came out of nowhere to add insult to injury, pelting the Big Easy with a barrage of poop.
It was an exciting week at The Players, the conditions allowed for low scoring whilst inflicting damaging scores when players missed shots; Sergio Garcia 5-putted from 9 feet and Russell Knox managed to hit 3 consecutive tee shots into the water on 17.
