Ernie Els returns Claret Jug to R&A Chief Executive Peter Dawson

Ernie Els returns the Claret Jug at Muirfield, Scotland

Upon arrival at Muirfield, Ernie Els hopped out of his courtesy car (Mercedes-Benz is the official vehicle of The Open Championship) to hand-off the Claret Jug to R&A Chief Executive Peter Dawson.

The picture above captures the moment. I’m sure Ernie and Peter exchanged some kind words. Both men are gentleman, and a credit to the game.

Best of luck to Ernie this week during his title defence. The Open Championship runs this week, July 18-21 at Muirfield, Scotland.
