make 2017 your best year yet

As the year draws to a close it's time for golfers to take stock of the 12 months that have passed and make plans for the coming season. Did your handicap go up or down? Did you make any swing changes? Did you perform well in competitions? Did you get to play any new courses? If you are anything like me then the answer to those, and more questions besides, will probably decide what your golfing goals are for 2017. For me, my goals are three fold. Firstly, to try and groove some swing changes that I worked on with my pro back in September which helped me finish the competitive season with some respectable scores. Next, to do more than make up the numbers and swell bar takings in the 2017 club…

Charitable thinking What a great time December is to be a professional golfer! After playing for vast riches during the regular season, they then have a succession of no-pressure, bring-your-wheelbarrow events to compete in during the off-season to keep the dollars coming in. Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a go at the top pros – you would obviously turn up to a limited-field event with a big prize pool if you were in their situation – but something about it doesn't sit right with me. I'd much rather see the money invested in grass-roots schemes, but I'm also not naive enough to expect that to happen. So, wouldn't it be great to see the world's best players donating their earnings from these jollies to charitable causes? I'm sure some do…

missing a trick

The decisions by Nike and Adidas to cease manufacturing golf clubs clearly indicates how rapidly the sport has declined in recent years. Some of the reasons mooted for this disturbing state of affairs include the cost of playing, the length of time taken to play and the social standing demanded to partake in the game. All are perhaps sound causes, and many sensible solutions have been proposed, but success has yet to be found. That's because the core of the problem lies in the failure to attract youth – not teenagers, but school children! All the other major sports – football, rugby and athletics – have classes in primary schools encouraging pupils to join their respective organisations, and it works. Sadly, The R&A has not followed a similar path to the Football…

Take us through your early years as an amateur and how beneficial they were to your development… I got into the England set-up in 2010. That enabled me to advance through practice, and learning how to do that effectively. I basically started from the bottom and worked my way up, and England Golf gave me the structure to do that properly. It was a massive help. What were some of the highlights of your amateur career? It all started off in 2010 with the Carris Trophy. In 2011, I had a successful finish to my junior career before starting my men's career the following year. I won the Hampshire Hog in 2012 and excelled in 2013, winning three times. I beat Matt Fitzpatrick in the final of the English Amateur, which was huge,…

10 players to take 2017 by storm

Every season, it becomes harder to proffer predictions on a game that's innately capricious in the first place. The amateur and collegiate ranks are brimming with more and more talent each year, lower-tier tours are full of players plenty good enough to ply their trade on the main circuits and the world's top 50 is as strong as it's ever been. In short, it's a fantastic time to be a golf fan. In this feature, we've highlighted – through interviews and profiles – ten players who we believe will make a significant impact at their respective levels this season. We don't have a crystal ball, but there are numerous factors, both tangible and intangible, that have contributed to their inclusions. We haven't featured the likes of Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson…
