South African player Ernie Els, with 65 worldwide professional tournament wins, including four major victories: 2 US Open Championships and 2 (British) Open Championships) is also a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. This fresh, simple painting depicts Ernie hoisting up the Claret Jug trophy after winning the 2012 Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, his face reflecting the sheer joy in winning a 4th major. The victory added him to the exclusive ranks of only 26 other players throughout the entire history of the game who have also won 4 or more major championships.
The painting was created with crayon, acrylics, and gouache on paper.
