from the editor

nick.jwright@bauermedia.co.uk ‘The Ryder Cup has changed and become perhaps a little too nice. We need the pantomime we saw at Le Golf National’ With the exception of the European team’s continued dominance and the American team’s perennial inability to unite for a week – this year’s hilarious displays of US discord being Patrick Reed’s outburst at not being partnered with Jordan Spieth and the face-off between Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka at the post-match party – the Ryder Cup has changed. When this great biennial event first caught my attention back in 1985, I was enthralled by how the event extracted the raw passion, patriotism and intense desire to win not just out of the players but also myself. Sure, things got a little spicy on the course at times but…

return of the king

“The last year and a half, I have honestly been struggling a lot, emotionally, and it’s hard because I can’t really show it.” Lexi Thompson, who took a short break from golf earlier in the season to “recharge my mental batteries”, continues to struggle, duffing a chip six inches when needing to get up and down to make the cut in the season’s final major. “I was in control of my own destiny and didn’t have it this week.” Jordan Spieth finished 31st in the FedEx Cup standings after three events, with only the top 30 advancing to the Playoff finale. It’s the first time in his career that Spieth has failed to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship. Symbolically, it was the perfect picture, an image for any age. Once as cold and…

the barometer

UP Oli Fisher Made European Tour history with the first-ever 59. The 30-year-old Englishman’s bogey-free round included 10 birdies and an eagle. Anne van Dam Netted her second LET title in dominant fashion with rounds of 64, 64, 65 and 65 at the Estrella Damn Mediterranean Open. Drew Nesbitt Shot the PGA Tour Latinoamerica’s first-ever 59 in his second round at the Brazil Open – following an opening round 79. Tom Lewis Ended a seven-year winless streak at the Portugal Masters, the event he won in 2011 in what was only his third career start. DOWN Chris Wood Three-putted the final hole of the KLM Open to lose by a shot as Ashun Wu birdied three of the final five holes to snatch victory. Rory McIlroy Played himself out of contention in the long-awaited head-to-head against Tiger at the Tour Championship, dropping five…

five burning questions for… jason day

“I need to start really lifting and getting after it.” Tiger Woods fans might not be overly delighted to hear that the former world number one, who has had four back surgeries to date, is planning a big winter in the gym. 18 months of injury and family tragedy saw Jason Day fall from world number one to outside the top-10 for the first time in five years, but the 30-year-old Aussie is now back in the winners’ circle and looking to add to his 12 PGA Tour titles and one major championship. He took time out to talk about what it takes to be the world’s best golfer, texting Tiger and cleaning up Bubba’s burrito… 1 Do you think you can get back to World No.1? Yeah, definitely. It’s more of a…

fisher’s 59 was superior to his american counterparts’

“If you can’t hit a driver, don’t.” Seems like pretty easy to follow advice from Greg Norman, one of the game’s greatest drivers the game has ever seen. When I log on to Twitter and see #59watch trending I automatically assume there’s another bomb-it-and-wedge-it PGA Tour round under way. It’s a hashtag that seems to trend on an almost weekly basis when there’s an event being played stateside. So you can imagine my delight when, on September 21, I logged on, clicked on the #59watch hashtag and quickly realised that this one was different – one that actually meant something. Watching Oli Fisher seal his place in the history books as the first man to break the 60 barrier on this continent was special. More than 690,000 competitive European Tour rounds in the…
