“We need to be ready to support golf clubs once life returnstonormal” If my calculations are correct, by the time you read this, we’ll be just a matter of days away from being able to return to playing golf. Having not struck a ball or even made a swing in almost three months, I’m not sure what type of game I’ll be bringing to the course (no real surprise there!) but, in all honesty, I don’t care. When the time comes to hit that first tee shot, come wind, rain or blazing sunshine, I won’t be bothered if my drive flies right into the trees, duck hooks out of bounds or, by some miracle, flies straight down the middle of the fairway. It’ll be liberating to be back outdoors playing the…

golf’s crucial questions

Is the PGA Tour’s mid-June comeback too soon? At the time of writing, the PGA Tour is planning to resume action in the second week of June. That means it is not only targeting a much earlier resumption than the European Tour, which expects to remain in shutdown until at least late July, it also means the PGA Tour is the first major sporting body to commit to a return date. But is it premature? Coronavirus will still be prevalent by the time the Charles Schwab Challenge rolls around. The PGA Tour’s plan is to play at least the first four events without fans, thus reducing the number of people in attendance each day from tens of thousands to fewer than 1,000, relying on testing kits to ensure their safety. “We’re…

the hall of famers

“If they banned tee pegs, the guys would have to go out and alter their drivers. They’d say, ‘All right, you’re allowed to place it on the grass.’ You wouldn’t be using [a] 6 degrees [driver]. You’d need to use one that can get airborne a bit. That would seriously change it.” Sir Nick Faldo enters the distance debate . “We could eat up most of the savings we saved in the last 10 years in 10 months. When we’re not playing and not producing TV, and so not delivering for international partners, it hurts players, caddies and it hurts the LPGA.” The LPGA’s Mike Whan paints a bleak picture. His Tour will resume in mid July.…

the booze brothers

Stuck indoors during lockdown, many of us have turned to booze to alleviate the boredom. And really, why not? However, the more discerning home drinker knows to choose quality over quantity, and to source it from the vineyard of a golfing great... NICK FALDO £14. SAUVIGNON BLANC The six-time major champion launched his wine label in 2000, with the six-strong Faldo Shield collection commemorating his victories in The Open and the Masters. Those in the know say its “grassy and elderflower notes balance perfectly with powerful fruit flavours. A great match for asparagus, delicate white fish dishes or goat cheese salads.” GARY PLAYER £26. LDC COLLECTION The Black Knight joined forces with South Africa’s Quoin Rock Winery to produce Player wines. The label launched with the Muirfield 1959, the first part of the Major Championship Series…

the formality

PUTT UNDER PRESSURE On putts just longer than a formality, it’s not uncommon for golfers to tense up. You may never putt with the Claret Jug on the line, but it’s all too easy to allow the pressure of your situation to permeate both body and brain. Many freeze, focused too much on the result to give themselves the chance to execute a good, pure stroke. They often overcorrect, hitting the putt much too softly to give it a chance. The solution is to forget about the hole, pick a point just past the cup and simply focus on hitting your spot. Stick to your routine and your regular process and you’ll eliminate the tension and remain relaxed. You may not hole every putt, but you will at least give yourself a…
