David Howell, a 20-year-old Englishman playing only his second professional tournament, is locked in a four-way tie for second place one shot behind the leader Ernie Els after three rounds of the South African Open. After opening rounds of 66 and 74, Howell shot a 70 yesterday as Els's game fell apart. The South African followed opening rounds of 65 and 70 with a 74, including five bogeys and only three birdies. "It was terrible golf today but that happens," Els said.
