when science and craftsmanship come together

Two years ago, I was lucky enough to visit Titleist HQ in Fairhaven, just outside Boston on the east coast of America, to see its golf ball operation. It was a totally mind-boggling few days learning what goes in to making the number one ball in golf. From the R&D department through manufacturing and on to testing, Titleist's relentless desire to produce the very best golf ball was seriously impressive. While Titleist is first and foremost a golf ball company, its clubs operation is going from strength to strength. In the build-up to its latest launch, the 917 driver and metalwood range, myself, GM's digital editor Neil Tappin and photographer Kevin Murray (both veterans of the Fairhaven trip) went over to Carlsbad in California to find out how the company…

Thomas Pieters: a Ryder Cup revelation Seve: an inspirationThe end is nighI fear the news of Tiger Woods' aborted comeback is the final nail in the coffin of a glorious career. It appears he is not yet mentally up to a return and this does not bode well for him getting back to winning ways. Unfortunately, he will never be allowed to ease his way back in at a minor tour event; every hole he plays will draw huge crowds and every shot he plays will be scrutinised throughout the media. His only chance is to throw himself in at the deep end and see what happens, but perhaps this is a gamble too far for the great man. I, for one, hope he calls it a day and leaves…

older and wiser

A club fitting can help transform your gameI came to golf rather late in life after a quadruple heart bypass. I quickly came to accept that younger playing partners hit the ball a lot further, so I just assumed they would score lower! I also believed that it was the player, not the equipment, that improved your handicap. Well, I am sorry to dispel these ideas. After retiring at the end of last year with my game in a reasonable shape, my wife suggested I see our professional and get measured for new clubs. I was not so sure, but the pro said it was a good time to try new clubs. A few weeks later, with a new Ping G driver and Callaway irons (graphite shafts) my life and…

Another loss would have been unthinkable, but the US side – led by inspired talisman Patrick Reed – pushed that thought firmly to one side as they recorded a much deserved and hugely impressive 17-11 triumph in front of a partisan home gallery in Minnesota.…

(Photography Getty Images)“I’VE ONLY WON SIX TOURNAMENTS WORLDWIDE AND I FEEL I SHOULD BE ADDING TO THAT TOTAL”How are you feeling about your golf at the moment?It's been a bit of a rubbish year with the first real high coming with a good finish at The Open. My season didn't start too badly, although I was already struggling then with a foot injury that forced me to take two or three months off. It was a decent performance at Troon and I played really nicely on the Sunday. It was just a little reminder that on my day I can still compete with the best players in the world.What did you make of the final round?It was something I hadn't seen before, even when you think of some of the…
