Forget Back to the Future Day – 15 years ago this week golf changed forever

In basic terms, the Pro VI was formed of a solid core (taken from the distance balls), surrounded by a surlyn “veneer” casing (taken from the performance balls). In financial terms it became the most successful golf product of all time. The effect was remarkable. A few months later, Phil Mickelson warned rivals not using […]

Tiger Woods caught up in China’s war on golf

There is a very good reason for this. Mr Xi, who also holds the title of general secretary of the Communist Party of China, has declared war on the ancient game and the authorities have begun shutting golf courses almost as quickly as the mouths of political dissenters. Tiger Woods managed a top-20 finish at […]

The best US golf holidays

The unfussy style of the resort – no spa, no valet parking – suits the location perfectly. The best gateways are Eugene and Medford, both three hours away. Eugene combines well with a couple of days of “auberge” luxury at Pronghorn resort, with golf among lava outcrops and the Cascade mountains for a backdrop. Use […]

Golf takes too long and way to speed it up is shot penalties

My key date for 2015 April 12 – Anybody who has watched Rory McIlroy this last six months will find it hard to envisage a final day of the Masters without the Northern irishman in some sort of contention. History will surely beckon. Should McIlroy win a greenjacket at his seventh attempt then he would […]

Golf 2014 review: Evolution must continue after golf finally began to understand simple fact of equality

Not to say that the decision to enter the modern age was unanimous. The 85 per cent in favour showed that there still was the odd crusty old fool determined that the stagnant status quo should remain.

In an eyebrow-raising interview with Golf Digest, the Texan, apparently speaking without irony, said the sport adhered to a code of honour that simply did not exist in cycling, at least during his era. But he insisted that that was what he loved most about it. “Golf is different from the culture of cycling when […]
