the secret to success

Dear Golf Monthly readers. You find me in a particularly generous mood today. I am going to offer you one of five golfing superpowers. You can only have one, so choose carefully. Your first option is to be a superb driver. If you take this power you will almost always be the longest in your four-ball, and you'll have the ability to vary the flight and shape of your drives. The second superpower I'm offering is perfect ball striking with your irons. Thins, chunks (and unmentionables) will be things that happen to other golfers. Your iron strikes will always make a fizzing sound as they leave the clubface and you'll hit a high percentage of greens in regulation. The third choice is to have a mercurial short game; no matter where you've left…

talking point

The GM View: No one is disputing Rory’s talent. On his day, he’s almost unbeatable. Comparisons with Tiger are probably unfair, but by this stage, Tiger had racked up 54 wins including 12 Majors. After a fairly lacklustre 2017 by his standards (so far), we expect Rory to rise again in 2018 and add to his Major tally. Edward Watkins: Given all the media attention and pressure, I think Rory has done incredibly well overall. If he could just learn to ride out the lulls a little more quickly, he’ll be kicking on in style over the next decade. PhilTheFragger: I’ve seen him play a number of times and it has obviously been a stunning ten years: highs and lows both professionally and personally and still at a young age, with the…

Too big a price to pay I love playing golf, but as a father with a young family, I am frustrated by the green fees charged by my local courses. With so many courses struggling, it does make you wonder why there aren't more competitive prices available. Nearly £30 for 18 holes on a normal weekday at many places is just too much. Half the price and I would definitely consider playing more. I really hope that my local courses take note and offer value-for-money deals. With great prices, great courses, food and drink at the 19th hole, good old-fashioned bonhomie and less elitism, there is still a chance to attract the younger generation. I just hope golf clubs realise it before it's too late. Simon Thorpe, via email Holding out for a hero I…

letter of the month

A true great My father died around this time four years ago, so it was great to open the October issue to find a whole story about his (and my) favourite golfer. To me, the image of my late father watching Seve play on TV will always be in my heart and will always bring me joy. Seve was more than just a great golfer: he was THE magician of the course, the good-looking Spaniard who could even get my mother to watch. No shot was off limits. Some have tried to be like Seve, but for most it’s near-on impossible. Because of this love for the man, my interest in golf grew. I started to play more to try and be like him. But the thing that always made me like him…

a heroic performance

The annual Golf Monthly Help for Heroes Forum Days have now raised over £96,000 in total thanks to another £13,000 at the gorgeous Hankley Common this year. All proceeds go to Help for Heroes, which supports injured and wounded ex-service personnel. The eighth staging was well supported, with 89 golfers taking to the Surrey heathland classic, which ranks 34th in our Top 100. After Camberley Heath last year, and West Hill and North Hants previously, Hankley had a lot to live up to, but it was in pristine condition and made for a truly fitting venue. Congratulations to Radbourne2010 who won 1st prize with 39 points playing off 5 on a day where winds were gusting at around 40mph at times. One point behind in 2nd place was GeneralStore, with Kraxx68 3rd…

the game

MATT FITZPATRICK Mountain King in Switzerland Matt Fitzpatrick had gone off the boil a little this summer. After a solid start to 2017, the 23-year-old's form had taken a dip after his 2nd-place finish in June's Nordea Masters, and few would have had him on their radar for success in the Swiss Alps. But Fitzpatrick ripped up the form book with a fine closing 64 before pipping Scott Hend in a play-off to take an early lead in the race for a Ryder Cup berth in Paris. FITZPATRICK BACK TO HIS BEST 4 European Tour titles at just 23 years and nine days – the youngest Englishman to reach that figure 7 Number of times Fitzpatrick parred the 18th hole during the event €5,662,533 European Tour career earnings after just three full seasons 15 Places climbed on the…
