the boss of the moss

Jordan Spieth holing another putt at Birkdale (Photography: Getty Images)Jordan Spieth's victory at the Open Championship was impressive for many reasons, but for me, two things really stood out. Firstly, the composed way in which he dealt with his unplayable lie at the 13th hole, using his knowledge of the Rules of Golf to give him a chance of keeping his round on the rails. And secondly, bar a few holes at the start of his fourth round, his putting, which was flawless from both long range and, crucially, inside ten feet.Spieth's putting action is far from classic, but as Golf Monthly Top 25 Coach Ged Walters explains on pages 76-77, he consistently nails the fundamentals. And there's much that we can all learn from looking at the exclusive putting…

Is 14 too few?Lift the limit With the upcoming review of the Rules of Golf, I would like to see a change to Rule 4-4 – Maximum of 14 Clubs. With the market flooded by all sorts of wedges and rescue/ utility clubs, which actually do what the manufacturers say, I now find 60, 56, 52 and 46° wedges in my bag, as well as 21 and 25° rescues, a driver, 3- and 5-woods and a putter. That is ten clubs.So out of my Wilson Staff irons, 5 to SW, I can only use four! I am sure there are loads of golfers out there who have a similar dilemma and would love at least a couple of extra clubs. Time for a change?Gerry Campbell, GiffnockEditor’s reply: I think you…

(Photography: Getty Imag)An Open to rememberI’ve just returned from Birkdale where I enjoyed a fantastic weekend. This beautiful, undulating links course is a haven for the spectator with its many natural amphitheatres. The atmosphere on Sunday was electric as Jordan Spieth first blew his lead, only to show tremendous mental fortitude.What a great ambassador he is for our sport: calm and well-mannered when his back is against the wall then humble and modest in victory. I hope he completes his Major full house.A few words about the organisation – all of the officials, from the stewards to the car park attendants, carried out their duties with a smile and good humour and helped to make the event a very happy place to be. Well done to everyone involved.Malcolm Gregory, via…

talking point

The GM View: The PGA of America clearly valued exposure over money – a stance that’s understandable given the USPGA is the least popular of the Majors. But what’s preferable: better coverage for a smaller audience or inferior coverage for a larger audience? Junior: I don’t think it’s either good or bad for golf. In fact, I don’t think it will have any impact on the growth of the game. It’s good that it’s free to the licence payer, but let’s face it, the only people who will watch the USPGA are those who are into golf already. I think what Sky has done with its coverage, and to grow the game, is to be applauded. @w81k3r: BBC coverage opens up more viewers, in turn growing the game. However Sky…

JORDAN SPIETHA Mountain To ClimbWhen Jordan Spieth stood on the 13th tee in the final round at Birkdale, head in hands, having just hit one of the worst drives of his career, he must have thought another Major title was slipping from his grasp. A big slice of luck and a calm head meant he kept himself in the fight, and the four-hole blitz that followed will go down as one of the finest comebacks in golfing history.SPIETH’S BRILLIANCE AT BIRKDALE23 Spieth is the second youngest player in history to complete three legs of the Grand Slam7 Putts over the final six holes, leading to a bogey, three birdies, an eagle and a par29 Minutes it took for Spieth’s ruling on the 13th holeThe American’s winner’s cheque $1,845,000Weekly attendance at…

(Photography: Getty Images)Is that one of the more dramatic final rounds you’ve had in a Major Championship?It was eventful! I told Michael [Greller, his caddie] after the round, 17 pars and a birdie would have been fine, too. But there are a lot of roads to get there. I showed some resilience and I give a lot of credit to Michael for that. As you can imagine, thoughts came in from the last time I was leading a Major on Sunday. All of a sudden it creeps into your head. I was so confident and suddenly the wheels had come off. It took a bogey to salvage the round.After the 13th, how would you describe your emotions? Were you comfortable?No, I was still uncomfortable. But after the putt on 13,…
