2012 Transitions Championship: Ernie Els Takes Lead

The 2012 Transitions Championship is coming nearer to a conclusion, and one golfer, Ernie Els, has emerged with the lead with a very hot round on Sunday.

Els is shooting a minus-6 on the day, and sits at minus-14 for the tournament. He passed Luke Donald and Sang-Moon Bae with a birdie on hole 12. A win today would be his first tournament title since winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2010.

Jim Furyke began the day as the leader, but is now one stroke behind Ells at minus-13. Scott Piercy turned heads shooting a minus-9 today and currently sits at a minus-12 for the tournament. He will need some help, however, if he wants to come home with the title.
