Defending British Open champion Ernie Els believes that he can still win more Major titles at the age of 43.

Ernie Els has insisted that he has 'nothing stopping him' from adding to his haul of four Major titles.

The world number 13 won last year's British Open, and ahead of this year's tournament at Muirfield, the South African has revealed that he is confident that he can defend his title in Scotland.

The 43-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I have been around a while. I turned pro back in 1989 when I was 20. I am 43 now, going on 44, so I am probably on the third stage of my career, but who cares?

"I feel, I really believe that I have a couple of Majors left in me. I have got everything sorted business-wise and all that stuff so I can concentrate and play golf. I have nothing stopping me.

"That is what makes golf so great. We are the only sport anywhere where you can compete as a 40-something and at times beat 20-somethings. It is a wonderful sport that we play."

Els has failed to make the cut at this week's Scottish Open.
