nick.jwright@bauermedia.co.uk ‘Surely the time has come for officials to be given the flexibity to use common sense when applying the rules?’ The new Rules of Golf were barely a month old when Haotong Li inadvertently broke one at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at the end of January. On the final hole of the tournament, as Li studied a short birdie putt, his caddie momentarily stood directly behind him as he took his address position. A rules official determined afterwards that, despite the fact that Li’s caddie was walking away from the player and looking in completely the opposite direction, he still violated Rule 10.2b(4), which restricts a caddie from standing behind the player. The subsequent two-shot penalty turned Li’s birdie into a bogey and caused him to…

who has the power?

When Bryson DeChambeau won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic with a record-breaking total of 24-under-par, securing his fourth title in his last nine starts, the overriding reaction should have been excitement. Here’s a 25-year-old, rapidly climbing the world rankings using weird clubs and a wacky swing, doing things his own way and enjoying a spell of dominance not seen since Tiger Woods first felt a twinge in his back.There was just one problem: how long it took DeChambeau to play his shots. His final-round 64 unfurled at a glacial pace, epitomised by a lengthy discussion with caddie Tim Tucker before a 138-yard wedge shot to the final green [see left]. A minute-and-a-half after it was his turn to play, DeChambeau, sitting on a seven-shot lead, finally put wedge on…

Okay, yeah, I like that. That’s eight run out. And then we have a little wind, so that shouldn’t affect it. You can hit it a little bit, okay? ■…

the most talked about swing in golf

Does it matter what your swing looks like? Most of us have rehearsed the perfect takeaway with an umbrella or rolled-up newspaper in the bedroom mirror at one time or another, but does this quest for a textbook swing do anything to improve our golf? There is a myriad of different looking swings on tour, which suggests there’s more than one way to swing a club. But none are as unique as the action of Hosung Choi, whose all-action move has been watched millions of times since going viral last year, quickly becoming the most talked about swing in golf.Choi’s pirouettes and spins aren’t just for show. He didn’t take up golf until his late 20s and spent the first decade of his golfing life with a more conventional…
