Poking the Rhino

Ernie Els shot the lights out at the Nedbank Challenge in Sun City, South Africa this past weekend and ended up winning the tournament by 8 strokes. He shot 63 on the final day, birdie-ing seven of the last ten holes. The Associated Press reports that following his runaway win, Els "pronounced himself ready to challenge Tiger Woods" for the number one ranking in professional golf, although the accompanying story contains no direct quote regarding any "challenge."

In the immortal words of the fomer tour caddie Kevin Ceconi, "now is not a good time to poke the rhino." In fact, never is a good time to poke Tiger Woods.
