It's your boy MD out here for the PGA Championship,
putting green, bout to go talk to my boy Ernie Els.
Let's do this.
Did you know that the first course I played ever
was one of your courses Oubaai?
Really, that must have been a while ago man.
We built that course, that was my first golf course
I ever built in South Africa so we're very proud of it
and hopefully you had a good round.
I don't think I did because I was like three.
So you plan on winning this week?
That is the plan, I'm working on my putting
as you can see, and my putting's been kinda letting me down
so I'm trying to get my putting going
and I'm hitting the ball great
and I love the golf course so yeah,
gotta shoot to score and see where we go.
So how long have you been playing?
How long have I been playing?
I've been playing for, what am I now 45,
I started when I was about eight, so most of my life.
What are you gonna do to prepare
for the next tournament, whether,
it's not a, I don't think it's a Major
but you doing anything special or just hanging about?
Yeah, well it depends on how we go
but you know the Major season, I haven't had a great year
so I would like to change things around.
And as I said, I love the course, and we gotta take it
from there and see where we go.
So how often do you visit back to South Africa?
I only get a chance to go back once.
I go back in December, holiday season as you well know
and we hang in the beach and my kids have a great time
away from school in the winter here in the states
so we have a great time down there
and then we get them back to school
and take it from there.
Thank you very much for your time and--
Alright my man.
I still remember the side of the shake,
the South African shake.
Wow that was amazing.
Your boy MD just finished talking with Ernie Els.
It's pretty cool that he's also South African.
