the ultimate test

michael.harris@timeinc.com When it comes to golf courses, Britain and Ireland are the envy of the world. From historic links to stunning heathland layouts, our courses are unrivalled. Such is the strength of the cast list that compiling our biennial list of GB&I's Top 100 Courses is a very time consuming, if enjoyable, job. As I write this, we are mid-way through the current assessing period that will generate a new set of rankings in December 2018. So many courses that feature in the Top 100, or who are hopeful contenders for it, are investing much time, money and effort into renovations. In truth, if improvements are not being made to a course – no matter how lofty its reputation – it's likely to be treading water or even going backwards. The competition…

your view

Building a team I thoroughly enjoyed watching the EurAsia Cup this year, and while it will never compete with the Ryder Cup, it does seem to be growing in prestige. It was a closely fought affair, and credit must go to both sides, as well as the two captains, Thomas Bjorn and Arjun Atwal. On another note, it was good to see Paul Casey playing. He's almost certain to earn a Ryder Cup spot, and given the fact he's played almost exclusively in American recently, spending time with his prospective Ryder Cup team-mates, like Tyrrell Hatton and Tommy Fleetwood, can only have been beneficial. Jake Tympson, Hastings My debt to the game I took up golf at 12 after a devastating leg infection destroyed my right hip joint. I went from a child who loved…

letter of the month

Practice makes perfect I’m not normally one for cold-weather golf, and when the new year rolls round I’m typically reticent to get back out on the course. However, I’ve already played a couple of rounds this year and I’m as optimistic as I can remember about the season ahead. I decided to commit to improving in 2018 by spending some time each week practising, so your February 2018 issue, with Rick Shiels’ instruction, came at the perfect time. I’d never really given much thought to practice before, and on the odd occasion I found myself on the range, I tended to just belt balls aimlessly. Shiels’ tips have given me real focus and I’ve already started to see some improvements. I can’t wait for the qualifiers to begin! Aaron Williamson, Alton Editor’s reply: I'm…

talking point

The GM view: The change is obviously designed to encourage new golfers to join clubs and play in competitions to help measure progress, but there are justifiably some concerns about pace of play. Howard Palm: What a joke! How long is a game going to take now? I will withdraw from competitions effective immediately. Fish: The thought that golf clubs are suddenly going to be overrun with an influx of novices is nonsense, but if we are, and it’s managed correctly, then that’s great income for the club. @scomack09: Ridiculous! Why would someone need a 54 handicap – that’s not helping the game in any way whatsoever. It will mean slower play and unrealistic nett scores! Fingers crossed my club has common sense on this one. It’s the worst decision I’ve seen in…

the game

EURASIA CUP A Closely Fought Affair Europe entered the singles at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club needing a strong showing to avoid a first defeat to Asia in the biennial team event. Fortunately, a number of prospective Ryder Cup stars came to the fore during an exciting final day in Malaysia. The likes of Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton excelled on debut, offering plenty of encouragement ahead of the showdown in Paris. TEAM EUROPE REIGN SUPREME 6 Number of players in the European side with past Ryder Cup experience – Stenson, Cabrera Bello, Fitzpatrick, Casey, Fisher and Pieters 10 Members of the European team inside the world’s top 50 at the start of the tournament, compared to one from the Asian team, Yuta Ikeda 14-10 Team Europe’s victory margin. They trailed 6.5-5.5 after two days 42.5 -…

You only dropped three shots over the four days for your first European Tour victory. Can you talk us through how the week panned out? I Just can't believe it to be honest. If you'd have told me at the start of the week that I would have shot 21-under and gone head to head with Branden Grace in front of his home crowd, I wouldn't have believed you. I didn't even know I was capable of golf like that under that kind of pressure, but to go and do it is just amazing. It felt like the whole day I was really solid. I never really gave Branden any leeway; I kept making him make birdies. The whole round I never really put myself under any pressure. I was nervous,…
