from the editor

nick.jwright@bauermedia.co.uk ‘Palmer and Woods had the swashbuckling approach that had TV executives lining up to open their cheque books’ The more things change, the more they stay the same. “As crass as it sounds,” wrote Arnold Palmer in his autobiography A Golfer’s Life , “the issue was really money – more precisely, television money.” To add some context, Palmer was explaining the decision taken by a group of rebellious tour professionals in the summer of 1968 to break away from the PGA of America and create a standalone tournament circuit. Over the past five decades, three people have largely been responsible for transforming what the player-turned-commentator Peter Jacobsen once described as “a couple of big-name players with a hotdog stand at the turn” into the billion-dollar financial juggernaut that is the PGA…

living dangerously

Bill Shankly famously said that football was more serious than life and death. But what about golf? Would you be willing to risk your life to watch it? Golf fans being hit by wayward shots is not a new phenomenon. Players have handed signed gloves and apologies to bruised fans for decades. No one can be sure whether the recent spate of fan injuries – including Corine Remande losing an eye after being hit by a Brooks Koepka drive during the Ryder Cup – is just a tragic run of bad luck or a sign that such incidents are becoming more common and increasingly serious. ARE THINGS GETTING WORSE? Golf balls are traveling further and faster than ever. The average driving distance on the PGA Tour is now 296 yards, up 10 yards…

the barometer

UP Eddie Pepperell Capped off an excellent season with a wire-to-wire victory at the British Masters, including an ace. His second career win should secure a Masters spot. Sergio Garcia Won a third consecutive Andalucia Valderrama Masters by a four-shot margin after the event was shortened to 54 holes due to thunderstorms. Becky Morgan The 44-year-old secured her first career win at the Hero Women’s Indian Open after 18 years and 119 starts. Richie Ramsay The 35-year-old holed a clutch four-footer on the final hole of the Valderrama Masters to retain his European Tour card for next season. DOWN Jordan Spieth Started 2018 second in the world but four missed cuts and just five top-10s see him drop out of the top 10 for the first time since 2014. Olivia Cowan The 22-year-old’s approach to the 8th during the final round of the…

five burning questions for… brooks koepka

He’s the world number one. He’s won three majors in his last six starts. He has the body of an NFL running back. His girlfriend is an actress and model. He should be the star attraction but, for some reason, Brooks Koepka remains largely below radar. He has 130,000 followers on Twitter, a fraction of his peers. He’s often asked to stand aside while fans take selfies with gym buddy Dustin Johnson. He has no club deal and rarely appears in adverts. Even after being awarded PGA Tour Player of the Year last month, the conversation was more about Koepka’s relationship with DJ than his own 2018 achievements. “I always feel like I’m overlooked, but I couldn’t care less,” he says. But we wanted to know more about the 28-year-old who…

stats amazing

319.8YDS LONGEST AVERAGE DRIVING DISTANCE Rory McIlroy led this category by over a yard from Trey Mullinax (318.7 yards). No fewer than 61 players averaged 300 yards or more in 2018, the highest number on record. 74.79% FAIRWAY FINDERS Henrik Stenson hit 546 of 730 fairways. It’s less good reading for Ricky Barnes, the only player to find the fairway less than half the time at 47.15%. Phil Mickelson was second from bottom with 51.59%. 74.25% HIT YOUR GREENS Stenson also hit a higher percentage of greens in regulation than anyone else on Tour. Keith Mitchell hit an impressive 37 greens in regulation in a row. We’d be happy to hit that many in an entire season. 354 NO THREE-PUTTS Parker McLachlin went a season-high 354 holes without a three-putt. Ben Martin and Henrik Stenson shared the record for most consecutive…
