Ernie Els to modify 2006 schedule

Ernie Els will miss the first two events of the 2006 PGA Tour schedule in a bid to improve on his disappointing form this year in the majors.

The South African will not play in the United States until the Nissan Open in Los Angeles in mid-February, and he will only be there for 10 weeks until after the Masters in April.

The two-time U.S. Open champion said his modified schedule is partly as a result of a knee injury, but also to help him in the majors.

He said he had a virus just before this year's Masters, which kept him in bed for 2 1/2 days. Els finished 47th, his worst finish in a major in four years.

"I will be ready for the Masters next time around and had I not got a virus just before Augusta, this year I would have been ready," Els said. "I don't know if it was all the traveling that did it to me or whatever, but also for some reason I went to the U.S. Open feeling tired."

Els finished 15th at the U.S. Open and he was 34th at the British Open, just before he suffered the knee injury in a boating accident.
