‘’Watching the world’sbest compete againsta backdrop of pines and azaleas whets your appetite for the season” If you’re old school like me, there’s a very good chance you still consider the Masters the start of the golf season proper. Some might say that thinking in 2020 is outdated, and they’d have a fair point given that the game now works to pretty much a 52-week calendar and we’ve already seen The Players Championship come and go with what is likely to be the strongest field of the year. But for me, it’s more than just scheduling. The Masters tends to coincide with the clocks moving forward and the weather finally taking a turn for the better. Is it just me, or has this winter really dragged its feet? Watching the world’s best…

searching for spieth

Four and a half years ago, Jordan Spieth was, quite literally, on top of the world. He’d just won the 2015 Tour Championship to become World No.1, capping a supreme season that included victories at the Masters and US Open, a T-4 at The Open, a runner-up spot at the PGA Championship, plus three PGA Tour titles. Soon after, Spieth became just the second player in post-war history to win seven times on the PGA Tour before his 23rd birthday. He was golf’s biggest breakout star since Tiger Woods. “It’s not unfair to compare Jordan with Tiger because Jordan is doing exactly what Tiger did at the same age,” said Butch Harmon. By July 2017, Spieth had 14 professional wins, including an Open victory, leaving him just a PGA Championship short of…

the number cruncher

616 Number of days without a missed cut for Tommy Fleetwood, a 45-tournament stretch that began at The Open in July 2018 and ended at this month’s Arnold Palmer Invitational. #CutAbove 6 Bernhard Langer has now won professional events across six decades. His Cologuard Classic victory was his 116th professional title. #Enduring 11 Shots taken by Matt Every on the par-3 5th hole of the Honda Classic, after hitting four balls in the water chasing a back-left pin with wind off the right and water on the left. “I wasn’t leaving that tee until I hit the shot I wanted,” he said, signing for an 85 to miss the cut. #TinCup 209.1 UK rainfall (mm) during February 2020, making it the wettest February on record. More than double the February average, it easily…

five burning questions viktor hovland

1 A first victory in only your 17th start on the PGA Tour. Congratulations on that. Were you excited or relieved to get that first win, and are you ahead of schedule for where you wanted to be at this stage? “Excited not relieved. Obviously you’re trying to win every week but it’s not easy to do, but it’s a special feeling any time you win, particularly when it’s your first win. Am I ahead of where I expected to be? It’s not what I expected, to be entirely honest with you. If you would have asked me a year ago if I would have won a PGA Tour event in my 17th start as a 22-year-old, I mean, I’d have told you that you were nuts. But, yeah, it happened.…

dream drivers

WHAT’S THE STORY? Less forgiveness but better spin robustness makes it more accurate than previous models. WHAT’S THE STORY? The best looking driver, plus an asymmetric sole to optimise downswing aerodynamics. WHAT’S THE STORY? Fast and long, it’s low-spinning but more forgiving than its predecessor. WHAT’S THE STORY? Solid, reliable and super forgiving. As useful in the hands of amateurs as it is with pros. CALLAWAY MAVRIK £469 Mavrik’s somewhat retro shaping didn’t exactly set our pulse racing when we first laid eyes on it just before Christmas. We couldn’t have been more wrong. The design actually enhances sound and feel while the three-driver family is tailored more than ever to the types of golfer who’ll use them. Callaway’s Alan Hocknell told us that ‘spin robustness’ improves accuracy and drop-offs – another way of describing forgiveness – and Mavrik absolutely…
