a busy time for the sport

Topics for me to cover in the editor's welcome are a little like London buses. You wait for ages for one to turn up and then three arrive at the same time. In fact, for this issue you can make that four. Firstly, there's the news that there will be a new World Handicap System from 2020. The overarching aim is to make it easier to get a handicap, and for that handicap to be more reflective of your current ability. Fergus Bisset explains what it means for us all on page 38. Secondly, The R&A and USGA released their third Distance Report, and after two years of what they considered to be minimal increases in driving distances, they reported an increase of three yards across the seven major world tours. The…

Keep it simple I have just had a look through the proof of the new January 2019 Rules. There are several significant improvements from the original draft, such as knee-height drops and the option to take a two-stroke penalty from back on the fairway for a lost ball or hitting OOB in club golf only. One objective of the new re-write, however, was to simplify things. The Rules have gone up from 134 pages to 150 pages when you include definitions that are an integral part of understanding the meaning. The fact that the number of Rules has dropped from 34 to 24 does not make them easier to understand. They continue to require cross-referencing beyond most club golfers' interest. I found several places where there are two or three paragraphs when one…

letter of the month

A magical time of year I can’t tell you how excited I am at the thought of long evenings, wearing shorts and the first competition off the back tees. Social golf is good for the soul, but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of competition. This will be my fifth season as a member with a handicap and all that goes with it, and while I haven’t played much over the winter, I don’t see that as a waste of my membership fee. To me, membership is about much more than price-per-game. It’s about belonging to a place where I can meet like-minded folk for a few hours of fun and frustration. Sign me up forever. And get those white tees out. David Quinn, via email Editor’s reply: David, I couldn’t agree more. I think…

talking point

The GM view: The statistics are interesting, but should the governing bodies be devoting more time to growing the wider game than focusing on the elite? We’ll have a piece on the subject in our next issue. Neil Dalzell: We need more shorter, tighter courses. Fifty-yard-wide fairways are the problem. Stop players just standing there and bombing it with little risk. The course used for the WGC-Mexico Championship was a perfect example. James Connor: Are we heading towards potential bifurcation here? Amateurs don’t need golf to be made more difficult, but the pros are hitting it outrageously far these days. It’s hardly as if pro golf and amateur golf is exactly the same from a rules perspective, anyway… DarrenWilliams: In the last decade or so, the gains have, in the main, been from…

the game

PHIL MICKELSON Back in Business Phil Mickelson returned to the winners' circle in emphatic style at the WGC-Mexico Championship, defeating Justin Thomas at the first play-off hole. The five-time Major Champion was clearly emotional after recording his first victory since the 2013 Open at Muirfield – hardly surprising given he came close to falling out of the world's top 50 earlier this year. He now looks poised to feature for the USA at Le Golf National in September. MAGIC FROM MICKELSON 4 The American only missed four times all week from within ten feet 3 Mickelson’s Strokes Gained: Putting rank on the PGA Tour 1,687 Days between Mickelson’s last two wins: the 2018 WGC-Mexico and the 2013 Open 43 Mickelson recorded his 43rd PGA Tour title at Chapultepec Golf Club 8 Only eight players have won more PGA…

phil mickelson

Can you describe the emotions of winning again? It's very meaningful. I can't really put it into words given the tough times over the last four years and the struggle to get back here. To finally break through and to have this validation means a lot to me. I'm very appreciative of the people that have supported me through the tough times. How significant was the victory? I needed to get a win before Augusta so I wasn't trying to win there for the first time in four-and-a-half years. It's important, I think, to have a win in a tournament, especially a big event like a WGC, before the Majors because you don't want to feel that type of pressure coming down the stretch having not won in a while. You want to…
