Rory McIlroy comes to amateur Bradley Neil’s aid in week he could make slam history

In golfing terms, victory at the Amateur Championship makes Willy Wonka’s golden ticket seem like a Tesco coupon. As well as Tuesday’s Georgia Cup in Atlanta – where he will play an 18-hole match against the US Amateur champion, South Korea’s Gunn Yang – it guaranteed entry to last year’s Open at Hoylake and this […]

Javier Ballesteros: I don’t feel any pressure. I learnt from the best but he was different from the rest

There was not, alas, to be any miraculous last conjuring trick.

Let us afford Tiger Woods the respect of waiting until we take the chisel to his gravestone

When it was announced in early 2014 that Woods required a microdiscectomy – a procedure which removes a piece of spine – Graham DeLaet told us that it would take a least a year to recover.

At the Honda Classic three weeks ago, he looked certain to win until he hit five shots into the lakes in a startling 10-hole spell and, in his own words “threw away” a tournament that ­Padraig Harrington eventually won.

As part of this run he also shot a closing 63 to win the Australian Open in Sydney, in a performance that even attracted McIlroy’s admiration. “You could give me another 100 rounds at the Australian and I still wouldn’t sniff 63,” he said. “Very impressive.” Spieth, up to sixth in the world rankings following […]
