farewell to a golfing legend

It's fair to say that us journalists love nothing more than a controversial comment from those we focus our attention on. I'm sure everyone remembers the quote attributed to Ian Poulter back in 2008: “I know I haven't played to my full potential, and when that happens, it will be just me and Tiger.” While it hasn't quite transpired like that, Poulter at least had the personality and game to consign that quote to the archives and become one of the most popular players on tour with both fans and the media. While not quite as unequivocal as Poulter's comment, this month's cover star, Patrick Reed, presented the golf writers with a tantalising sound bite when he won the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral. No sooner had Reed lifted the trophy than…

Letter of the Month will receive a year’s supply (six dozen) of the best Titleist golf ball for their game Back to basics I am relatively new to golf, having started in April 2015, and I was given a 26 handicap at my local golf club. I really caught the golf bug and was playing quite regularly, so I saw my handicap drop to 16.6 before the end of the season. I had been advised to have lessons with a PGA Professional but I convinced myself I didn't need to – my handicap was falling so I thought I must be doing something right. But then I seemed to hit a wall. I was avoiding my long-irons and, rather than trying to fix my slice, I was playing with it and developing bad…

For better or for worse? With the new rules on match play handicap difference coming into force (increase to 90 per cent, from 75 per cent) drive4show initiated a forum discussion on whether they would continue to participate in the four-ball better-ball format. Jacko_G was particularly scathing of the change: “Golf is run for high-handicap bandits. Giving them more shots will only mean low players will stop entering.” Lump offered a more measured response, commenting: “I can't remember the last time I got shots in match play. Three quarters makes it fair.” However, The poacher swiftly went to the other end of the spectrum: “Why isn't it 100 per cent? I have no problem with it at all.” Hobbit wasn't flustered by the change, stating that he would still feel in control of…

most testing of all?

St Andrews Jubilee Course / Fife You’re in St Andrews with time for two rounds, but which of the seven layouts to play? Assuming the Old Course is a given, many would say that the Jubilee is the other must-play links. The town’s third course opened as a 12-holer in 1897, initially aimed at beginners and ladies. It quickly grew to 18 and was further improved by Willie Auchterlonie in the 1940s. But it wasn’t until Donald Steel upgraded it to championship standard in the late 1980s that the Jubilee really bared its teeth. Some feel it is now the town’s most challenging links of all. It certainly has a different character, getting in among the dunes, playing alongside the Eden estuary for a stretch and lying closest to St Andrews Bay. Two shortish…

Many players are physically talented enough to win multiple Majors but don’t. What separates guys like Woods and McIlroy? To me, Tiger was more like Michael Phelps. He was just faster than everyone else. If you and I are swimming and I'm a faster swimmer, I'll beat you every time. I felt like that with Tiger at his best because he never really made any mistakes. Phil, you felt like you had a chance, because he might make a mistake. Rory was mistake-prone earlier in his career, but he realised that on the back nine at Majors when the pressure gets the most intense, it's all going to be over in an hour anyway. When you walk to the 13th tee at Augusta, in an hour and a half you'll be…
