something for everyone

I've spent a lot of time travelling recently, which has given me plenty of opportunity to think. Once the pressing stuff is out of the way – why do I keep on chunking my pitching wedge and what's the best ale sampled at clubs I've visited (answers: I'm getting ahead of the ball and Deeside Blonde at Banchory GC) – I keep coming back to a topic: what would the ultimate golf club look like? Let's call it Utopia GC. Well, it would have an attractive, challenging 18-hole course featuring different teeing grounds to cater for all; the rough would be kept at a sensible height; and there would be no long grass under trees! Divots would always be replaced, bunkers raked and pitch marks repaired. There would also be a short…

Amateur excitement Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but perhaps we pay undue lip service to the pros and give scant regard to the amateur game. I was enthralled at the nail-biting final of the Amateur Championship between Harry Ellis and Dylan Perry. The way in which Ellis, 4dn with five to play and 3dn with three to play, called on all his reserves to emerge victorious at the 38th hole was exemplary. Many congratulations to him and to Sky Sports for showing us again what it is like at the pinnacle of the amateur game. Anthony Wharton, via email Major disappointment I watched the US Open from Erin Hills and I have to say I was distinctly underwhelmed. I know you can't guarantee an exciting finish to every Major, but the course and set-up meant it felt…

letter of the month

Whatever the weather We’ve been so fortunate this year with the weather, having one of the driest winters in memory and one of the hottest Junes on record. As a member of a parkland golf club in Kent, we have enjoyed conditioning better than ever before. However, one man’s heaven is another’s hell, and it was on a recent trip to a nearby links course that I discovered the lack of rain and heightened sun is providing greenkeepers with an altogether different problem: trying to grow in bare patches and keep the course from drying out and browning off too much. So I write this letter as a quick thank you to the men and women who get up every morning before the roosters to make our golf courses a pleasure to play…

talking point

The GM view: Some feel Spieth’s phenomenal 2015 season will never be surpassed, but he continues to win big titles. It’s easy to forget he’s still so young and has plenty of time to register more Major victories, especially if he gets back to his best with the flat-stick. Matt Peartree: I take it all back. I’d written Spieth off after he seemed to lose his way with the putter, but his win rate cannot be questioned. Jack only managed eight PGA Tour wins before his 24th birthday. GreggerKBR: I find Spieth a bit petulant at times, but I absolutely love watching him. He really gets into his shots – he lives and breathes them. But such passion can be a bit of a burden when it’s not going so well. Steve Taggart:…

You took the unconventional route of coming over to Europe to play. Did that make you a more complete golfer? Going over to play the Challenge Tour was really, really cool. To get to travel the world at 21, 22 years old and do what you do for a living is pretty neat. I love travelling. I'll go anywhere. I think it's so much fun. Some of the places we went to were pretty great. I think going over helped me grow up a little bit and really figure out that, hey, play golf, get it done, and then you can really take this somewhere. I built a lot of confidence off that. Was it all plain sailing or were there any low moments? Yeah, actually there was a low point. I called…
