HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- Ernie Els might've been the second happiest golfer at Augusta National last Sunday night when good friend Adam Scott slipped on the green jacket as the Masters' champion. Els, who tied for 13th last week, is part of a strong field at the RBC Heritage, which begins Thursday. The 2012 British Open champion has had several close calls at Harbour Town Golf Links, but brings plenty of confidence - and the satisfaction of watching Scott win his first major championship - into this year's tournament. Els earned his fourth career major at Royal Lytham & St. Anne's this past July when Scott threw away a four-stroke lead with four holes remaining. Els consoled Scott before hoisting the claret jug, then made sure the Australian didn't let the collapse derail him from contending in future majors. "I've really made a point of getting on him a little bit and keeping him going forward," Els said Wednesday. "We played a lot of golf and talked quite a bit. He really was motivated for it." Scott rallied to the top of the leaderboard in Sunday's final round, then defeated Angel Cabrera in a playoff to become Australia's first Masters champion. It was a different sort of conversation the two shared after this major. "Yeah, we had quite a few beers, both of us, when we spoke to each other," said Els, smiling. "He's very delighted, I can promise you, that he got a green jacket and I was delighted for him."
