developing skills for life

Respect for your opponent: Justin and Sergio at Augusta (Photography Getty Images)As golfers, there are many things the game offers us that I suspect we take for granted. Physical exercise, friendship, competition, a break from everyday life and the chance to enjoy it all in the great outdoors.Delve deeper, though, and there's even more golf gives you. It teaches you resilience, cooperation, manners and respect for your opponent.The Golf Foundation – the charity promoting golf to youngsters – calls such qualities ‘Skills for Life', and they are at the heart of what the organisation hopes to achieve by getting more young people into golf.To help promote and recognise those values, the Foundation has introduced a new awards programme this year, and is looking for up to 600 UK clubs to…

Sergio: an inspiration to all golfersLayer up and get out there all year round!Be preparedWhile on a golf break with friends my car was broken into in the club car park, and every item of golf equipment I owned was stolen. To make matters worse, all my mates' gear was also stolen.The lessons learned from this unfortunate incident are obvious, but worth reflecting on. Firstly, please make sure that you are adequately insured for any potential loss. Whether it's travel, golf, home or car insurance, please check the fine print.Secondly, call the police. Many policies are null and void if you don't do so within 24 hours. Thirdly, make sure your kit is covered when in your car. Again, if it's not, your insurers are likely to be more slippery…

letter of the month in association with

Barriers to entryI am looking to join a golf club for the first time at the age of 46 and I’m getting frustrated with the ‘age related’ full memberships that many of my local clubs offer.I support student rates wholeheartedly, but I cannot understand why there is a price band for those in their 20s and 30s, with my age band being the most expensive? It’s now 2017, and while this may have been applicable in the 1970s, the majority of my co-workers in these other age brackets have both a) more time to play and b) more disposable income than I do with a mortgage and children.It is completely turning me off the idea of joining anywhere locally on a permanent basis and it is very frustrating.Ian Bignell, SurreyEditor’s…

talking point

The GM view: The R&A and USGA are clearly being more proactive, which is good to see, and few could dispute the logic behind limiting video evidence – something that’s been a seemingly perennial source of negative headlines over the last few years. Phil Kennedy: At last, a step in the right direction and away from the armchair slo-mo jury. I’d have added a cut-off point after the player has finished their round for ‘evidence’ to be considered – two hours, for example. Timothy Randolph: I’m glad that action has been taken, but it’s somewhat ironic that the final straw came after an incident where I believe the player in question may have been bending the rules. Darrell Rowe: Just no more call-ins. If the officials on the spot don’t…

the game

SERGIO GARCIATaking Centre StageIt's been a whirlwind few weeks for Sergio Garcia in the wake of his career-defining triumph at the 2017 Masters – something many feel will be the catalyst for a late-career Major flurry. He rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, scaled the Empire State Building and even visited the Bernabeu to start El Clasico – the fiercely contested fixture between Barcelona and his beloved Real Madrid.

(Photography Getty Images)You played well at The Masters, finishing tied for seventh, so you must have been feeling good at the start of the week in Texas…I knew my game was in a good place – Augusta showed that. But I had played some really good rounds of golf of late and I enjoyed a week off before the Texas Open for my son's birthday. It got me away from the game and I didn't do too much – just enough to keep the feeling I have been having success with.It was your first PGA Tour win in 180 starts. You’ve been second six times. How does it feel to get over the line?It's just a big relief for me. I don't have to answer that question anymore. I feel…
