Tataurangi Topples World No.2

Kiwi golfer Phil Tataurangi brought an abrupt end to Ernie Els winning streak, knocking the South African star out of the Accenture Match Play Championship with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. The Championship pairs off 64 of the world’s top-ranked golfers in a $US6 million free-for-all. Els: “I knew he was going to make that putt.”
