‘Would McIlroy have traded his Players, Tour Championship and FedEx Cup victories for a third PGA? My guess is no’ Creating our Stars of the Year issue is always one of the most enjoyable fixtures in the Golf World calendar since we get the opportunity to reflect on all of the incredible storylines that have unfolded during the past 12 months. This season has given us a particularly rich collection of achievements to analyse, from Tiger Woods’ incredible comeback victory at Augusta to Shane Lowry’s emotional Open win at Martin Ebert’s revamped Portrush to the European team’s back-from-the-dead revival to win the Solheim Cup… and more. First up, though, Rory McIlroy. Winning The Players at Sawgrass in March arguably was a grand-enough achievement to have merited inclusion in our feature in its…

sorry, sam! why tiger was already the pga tour’s greatest ever player

When Tiger Woods won the ZOZO Championship in Japan, much was made of the fact it was his 82nd PGA Tour victory, tying Sam Snead as the tour’s most successful player of all-time. “The majors speak for themselves, but 82 is just a crazy number,” said Gary Woodland, who played with Woods for the final two rounds in Japan. “You look at the guys who have won 10 times and that’s pretty special, let alone to come out here and win 82 times.” Make no mistake, this is an incredible achievement. Combine the PGA Tour victories of Dustin Johnson (20), Rory McIlroy (18), Justin Thomas (11), Jordan Spieth (11) and Brooks Koepka (seven) – five players who have all been number one in the world – and you would still be 15…

five burning questions for... tyrrell hatton

Two-and-a-half years ago, Tyrrell Hatton was on a rapid ascent to the top tier of golf. He’d won three times and was on the brink of breaking into the world top-10. No one would have predicted the period that followed, especially a 2019 season that saw six missed cuts and only four top-10s as Hatton dropped to 49th in the world. It was a dip in form that could be attributed to a persistent wrist injury, but Hatton says it was a hangover from the 2018 Ryder Cup. It’s therefore no coincidence that in the two months since qualification began for the 2020 Ryder Cup, Hatton has finished in the top 20 in five out of five attempts, and broke his winning drought at the Turkish Airlines Open. Nothing, he…

what happens if you run out of balls during your round?

It’s a golfer’s worst nightmare. You lose a ball, reach into your bag for another, and realise you’re down to your last. Running out of balls is about as embarrassing as it gets. But what are the repercussions? It’s a question recently highlighted by two incidents on tour, with Clement Berardo and Eddie Pepperell both being disqualified for ‘failure to complete a hole’ after running out of balls. Running out of balls doesn’t have to mean you’re out of the running, however. Rule 4.2a(1) states: ‘A player may get a conforming ball to play from anyone else, including another player on the course’. You could even get balls from the pro shop, provided you do not ‘unreasonably delay play’. So how did Berardo and Pepperell end up being disqualified? The official answer is the…
