playing against all the odds

“As I was sitting in hospital, I was thinking about the three things I wanted to get back in my life. The first? My family – so my wife and two kids. The second, of course, was my love for Tottenham Hotspur and going to watch football. And then the third was being able to play golf. That was the one I knew was probably taken away from me for good.”It’s impossible to comprehend what Kris Aves has been through since March 22, 2017; the day a terrorist drove a 4x4 into pedestrians crossing London’s Westminster Bridge.The driver killed five people that day; Kris, a Metropolitan Police officer, was left with life-changing injuries.Before the accident, he’d been playing golf for the best part of 10 years. Now, doctors told…

the edible golf course!

It’s not uncommon to see sheep, cattle or deer trimming turf and thinning out rough at remote golf courses in the UK. But one club in Asia has gone a step further by deploying a family of water buffalo to act as its greenkeepers.The bovine threesome live, eat and sleep at Laguna Golf Lang Co, and tend to four hectares of rice fields which contour the 3rd and 4th holes, and weave between the 13th green, 14th tee and run adjacent to the 15th fairway.“We are pretty sure it’s a first in this part of the world to have animals performing such an important role on the golf course,” says Adam Calver, director of golf. “The water buffalo act as bio-mowers while also protecting the traditional Vietnamese landscape.”The animals…

‘nobody has actually worked harder than me’

What do you remember most about winning the US Open last year? I didn’t tell anybody this, but I was thinking maybe I needed an IV and to go to the hospital on Friday. I felt so dehydrated, so bad. I must have drank – when we got home – maybe 20 bottles of water, and it just wasn’t enough. I couldn’t even sleep Friday night. And then Saturday, I played some of the best golf all year. What was like it like playing with Tiger and Adam Scott on Sunday? That’s what I dreamed of when I was a kid. Those are the guys that I looked up to ever since I started the game. I’d say to myself ‘this putt was to beat Adam and…

five key holes at bethpage

4TH PAR 5, 517 YARDSPlayed as two dog-leg lefts, and considered by many to be the best par 5 in the northeast. To reach the green in two, the tee shot must hug a cluster of bunkers on the left to avoid running out of fairway on the right. From there, the approach plays blind and needs to be hit high enough to carry the front greenside bunkers and stop short of a run-off area at the rear. 7TH PAR 4, 524 YARDSRanked as the hardest green to hit in regulation during the past two US Opens. A large oak prevents players cutting the corner of the dogleg from the tee. Instead, they’ll need to carry it 280 yards to avoid a sprawling bunker on the right, the…
