    Els suffers second-round meltdown in Singapore

    Ernie Els's miserable week continued with a second-round collapse at the Singapore Open on Friday, the South African's 76 leaving him six-over for the tournament and likely to miss the cut. The world number four lost in a play-off to Australia's Adam Scott here last year and came into the $4-million event as one of the favourites.

The world number six birdied the 18th to defeat South Africa's Ernie Els in a three-hole playoff and register a first victory since his triumph here 12 months ago.
