what will the ’20s bring?

I’m sure you’ve already had your fill of the decade in review, but please just humour me for one more look back before we dive head-first into the 2020s. I think golf is in an exciting place – challenged, certainly, but exciting nevertheless, with lots of opportunities for growth and development... • Memberships Some of the biggest changes in golf will come at “traditional” members’ clubs, where we pay an annual subscription. That model is already changing at forward-thinking clubs, who are trying new, more flexible memberships for people who can’t play every week. • The format Will we still be playing 18 holes on Sunday morning? A lot of us will, yes. But many golfers (in particular new ones) will only ever hit balls at high-tech driving ranges, where your phone…

rory mcilroy the golfer of the decade as voted for by you!

Rory McIlroy has beaten Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods to another award – and the results show it wasn’t even close! More than 500 of you cast your vote for the Best Golfer of the Decade on our Twitter page, with more than 50 per cent believing he out-performed his rivals between 2010 and 2019. The stats back that up and reveal that Rory had more wins on the top-two Tours than Tiger and Koepka combined. He also contributed to Europe winning three Ryder Cups and spent more time at the top of the World Rankings than anyone else. The only thing counting against him is that he remains without a Major since 2014 – something which hasn’t gone unnoticed by Koepka in their recent war of words. But when you consider Rory’s still…

going for gold!

When is it? The Olympic Men’s Competition begins six days after the opening ceremony in Tokyo, and 11 days after The Open finishes. It will be played over 72 holes of strokeplay at Kasumigaseki Country Club’s East Course, one of Japan’s oldest golf courses, from July 30-August 2 – the same date as the British Masters. The Women’s tournament follows the same format and begins three days after the men’s event ends, from August 5-8. How does the qualification work? Each field will be made up of 60 players, with at least one spot being held for a golfer from the host country (Japan) if one does not otherwise qualify. Places will be allocated based on World Ranking points accrued since July 1, 2018. The cutoff point for the Men’s Competition is June…

tech knowledge spikes or spikeless?

This year’s Masters marks a decade since Fred Couples wore the first-ever pair of spikeless golf shoes on Tour – sparking a footwear revolution. Every brand now offers spikeless and spiked options, and golfers are often torn between which to choose. But new research makes that decision a lot easier – claiming distance, smash factor, ball speed and shot dispersion all improve while wearing replaceable spikes. The study was conducted at Pinehurst Golf Resort by pro Eric Alpenfels and Dr Bob Christina, Emeritus Professor of Kinesiology at the University of North Carolina – Greensboro. They took 28 male golfers and split them into two groups, half with handicaps over 12 and the other half with handicaps under nine. Each golfer then hit 10 drives, five in replaceable cleats and five in spikeless shoes. The…
