the entertainment game

I've been watching golf seriously for a little over 30 years and in that time the standard from the top players has undoubtedly got better and better. I'm not talking about whether Jack, Gary and Arnie in their prime were better than Jordan, Rory and Dustin – I'd say the original Big Three remain the greatest trio to ever play the game – but when you look at the wider picture, it's hard to argue against the strength in depth on show today. Modern, elite golfers are fitter and stronger than their predecessors. They hit the ball further and they take fewer shots to get it round the golf course. The gap between the top and bottom is getting smaller. On any given week, any tour pro can win without it being…

Crowd mentality Having watched the Solheim Cup, I feel compelled to offer comment on the general behaviour of the teams involved and of certain golf spectators at events like this. I believe the practice (from both sides) of stirring up emotion from supporters with no motive other than to put off the visiting team is disrespectful and damaging to our game. The constant wail of “USA” spoils what should be one of the great sporting occasions. This is closely connected to the practice at most tour events, where imbeciles shout “get in the hole” and other nonsensical rubbish. Please can the media use its voice and influence to help stamp out the yob element that is invading our great game.

letter of the month

A backward step With its poor coverage of the USPGA from Quail Hollow, the BBC has made it clear what value it puts on our favourite game. I get that the Majors and Ryder Cup should be freely available, but this is the real world where money talks. The Beeb is never going to have the funding to air comprehensive coverage. The BBC got a massive opportunity from the PGA of America and blew it. I sat down looking forward to live Sky-standard presentation and got standard definition and dodgy sound on the red button. Thank goodness for Peter Alliss, who brought some quality to it all. Leave, Peter, before golf becomes extinct on the BBC! BBC Sport, you have spectacularly let your audience down. It’s time to leave it to the professionals. I…

SOLHEIM CUP Dominance in Des Moines The United States eased to a 16.5-11.5 victory over Europe in Des Moines, Iowa. They went into Sunday with a commanding five-point lead and, despite a commendable six points from Europe in the singles, the result never looked in doubt. Lizette Salas clinched the cup with a win over Jodi Ewart Shadoff. Europe will need a major shift in fortunes if they are to challenge at Gleneagles in two years' time. AMERICA TRIUMPH ON HOME SOIL 21 Points earned by Cristie Kerr in eight Solheim Cup appearances – a new USA record. Laura Davies is the all-time record points scorer with 25 9 Solheim Cup appearances for Catriona Matthew – she had a third of the European team’s combined previous appearances on her own ahead of the contest 10/15 The…

You’re the son and grandson of a PGA professional. Winning must have been a great moment for your family? The USPGA definitely has a special place in my heart. For it to be my first one and to have my dad there, and my grandpa watching at home, was pretty cool. It's just a great win for the family, and it's a moment we'll never forget. What was the key behind keeping your emotions in check? I truly felt like I was going to win. My girlfriend was supposed to fly out at about 7pm and I told her, “You need to change your flight, because I just feel like I don't want you to miss this. I feel like I'm going to get it done.” I was just very confident. I'm sure…

strategy how to dominate a short par 4

The green is reachable it's time to take a big swing and go for eagle. Or is it? Consider: the eagle conversion rate at Chambers Bay's drivable par-4 12th during the 2015 US Open was just 5.6 per cent. Pretty long odds, and those are the world's best players. The smart money is to play for birdie. Here are three ways to go about it… 1 Lay up Laying up turns this hole into an easy par 3. Check the pin: if it's cut towards the back, hit a hybrid or a fairway wood, leaving a short wedge to the flag. If the pin is cut near the front, hit a long- or mid-iron, which will allow you to make a full swing on your approach. Both scenarios put a wedge in…
