nick.jwright@bauermedia.co.uk I first met Justin Rose back in2003. An Irish media company had signed him to be the face of an instructional DVD. It was called Play Better Golf and I was asked to write the script. On the day of the photoshoot at Rose’s home club, North Hants, my role was simply to ensure that Justin was never at a loss for words and to provide cues and reminders if he ever forgot his lines. It turned out to be one of the easiest days of my life. Polite, composed, accommodating, effortlessly engaging and articulate in front of the camera, Rose had the production crew eating out of his hand. At the end of the shoot, he approached each person individually and thanked them for their time and efforts. At…

making it in america

Graeme McDowell’s victory at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship was significant in its own right. It was his first win since 2015 and saw him jump more than 100 places in the world rankings while securing a much-needed two-year PGA Tour exemption. But there was more to it than that. McDowell’s triumph, coming off the back of wins for Francesco Molinari, Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey, made it four European victories in a row for the first time in the PGA Tour’s 90-year history. That made us ask two questions. Why do Europeans keep winning in America? And are we entering an era of Euro dominance, or is this merely a month-long flash in the pan? “It’s very cyclical in the game of golf,” says McDowell. “Obviously the Ryder Cup…

Having gone nearly five years without a major and repeatedly failing to win from final group positions, the world wondered ‘What’s wrong with Rory?’ He proved at Sawgrass that the answer is ‘Not much’ and, as he turns 30, feels primed to add more wins – including the elusive one... 1 You were in contention without winning numerous times before your Players victory. How much did that run affect you? It didn’t mean anything. It would have been nice to get another win but, if anything, all those close calls were good for me. It gives you even more hope to go forward and go again. That’s the great thing about golf, you can get straight back on the horse and have another opportunity the very next week. Not many sports have…

custom paint job

The Spider Tour is the most popular putter TaylorMade has ever made. It’s in the bag of 1.5 million amateurs as well as numerous tour pros, including World No.1 Dustin Johnson, and was used for three-times as many PGA Tour wins as its nearest competitor last season. Not every golfer wants the same putter as half their Sunday morning syndicate, though, and when you’re spending serious money it’s nice to feel you’ve got something a bit special in the bag. That’s where TaylorMade’s ‘MySpider’ personalisation programme comes in. You get the same performance from the Spider Tour’s super-stable head and ‘Pure Roll’ insert, but in whatever bespoke design you desire. You can change the colour of each part individually, decide what alignment aid you want (if any), and choose the hosel…
