VIRGINIA WATER, England—Ernie Els has launched an expletive-laced attack on European Tour officials and greenkeepers at the BMW PGA Championship for failing to water the putting surfaces enough for the third round at Wentworth.

Els was criticized for tough changes he made to the West Course when he helped redesign it in 2010, but he dished out the disapproval after numerous high scores on Saturday.

The two-time U.S. Open champion says "I'm fed up with it ... It's not my bloody job doing it. It's their job. They have been around a long time, I'm really disappointed with it."

Els shot a 70, but eight players have already had scores in the 80s on Saturday.
