the stage is set

I'm writing this editor's letter the day after Alex Noren's incredible final-round 62 at Wentworth to win the BMW PGA Championship. I'm still stunned by the sheer brilliance of the Swede's performance. The European Tour's flagship tournament – played over a revamped West course – was deemed a great success on every level, and it follows one of the best-ever US Masters and an early season punctuated by a number of exciting events. It's been a corking year so far. After the US Open at Erin Hills – which looks set to be another blockbuster with so many Europeans in good form – the action will move to the Lancashire coast for the 146th Open Championship. If ever there was a tournament, and indeed a course, where fine golf and plenty of…

The bigger picture I've just read the ‘Barriers to entry' letter in the July issue and I'm shocked some people have an issue with reduced membership fees for younger adults. I'm 27 and have a decent job, but I have a mortgage, a baby and a marriage on the horizon. I certainly don't have £1,000 a year (average cost in my area) to spend on golf membership. The average age at golf clubs is high and cost is one of the main reasons why younger people don't play. Everything about golf is expensive: clubs, courses, clothing. It's tricky when we have student loans, a job market in turmoil, skills shortages and a poor economy. I think clubs that offer these reduced fees are excellent and the best ones raise it gradually until you're…

letter of the month

Attack of the clones I write this letter mildly jaded after staying up to watch the Players Championship last night. I wish I hadn’t. Is it me or are golf tournaments becoming increasingly anti-climactic? There are few who would doubt Si Woo Kim’s performance was a huge achievement – not least because of his age. At 21 he showed maturity beyond his years and to perform under that kind of pressure is a feat in itself. And while I am not suggesting he dive into the water on 18 naked to celebrate, a smile would have been nice. Perhaps he doesn’t really get excited – maybe the result of a billionaire sports industry that churns out robots schooled from the age of three. Harsh? Perhaps. But look at Tiger – was there anything…

talking point

The GM view: Thought-provoking stuff from Wood. “The standard of English golf is as high as it’s ever been. If it was tennis, it would be global news.” Golf just isn’t a key focus for the media, even with 12 Englishmen in the world’s top 100, as opposed to just two in tennis. Guy Linnegar: It’s hard to disagree with Wood, and especially the tennis comparison. I remember last year at Wimbledon, Marcus Willis won a first-round match there and it was all over the news. Lord Tyrion: It’s the same in other sports when we start to do well in numbers. There are cyclists with Olympic Golds who barely get a mention because we now have so many – 20 years ago they would have been legends. Kevin Stable: Wood has a…

ALEX NOREN Champagne Moment Alex Noren confirmed his status as one of the world's best players by firing a final-round 62 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth to secure his fifth victory since July 2016. The Swede – who compiled eight birdies and an eagle during a sublime course record-setting round – now has ten professional wins to his name. If this form continues, he'll be making his Ryder Cup debut next year. NOREN’S WENTWORTH MASTERCLASS 62 New course record set by the Swede on Sunday at Wentworth, which included eight birdies 8 Current Official World Golf Ranking – his highest-ever position €1,041,939 Prize money earned by Noren for his victory at the BMW PGA 26.25 Average number of putts per round at Wentworth Rickie Fowler’s final-round score at the Players Championship 79 0 Number of top-25 finishes…

As an nine-time winner on the European Tour, where does that final round rank? It was probably my best ever. It's a tough course mentally coming down the stretch. It's not ridiculously narrow, but if you hit the ball a little bit wayward, it can cost you. And I putted probably the best I've ever putted. At what point did you think you were in with a chance of winning? After the birdie on 12, I thought it was going very well. You always try to get in that zone that everybody talks about, when you've got some adrenaline mixed with focus. After that birdie, I felt really confident going into 13 and 14, and the weather helped me because right after I finished, it started raining a bit! A third of your European…
