I have seen many a rant on Twitter by women getting upset at people like myself for calling the ladies game “relatable”. In this post, I examine from close experience whether it really is or not.
Jon Rahm cruised to a magnificent Masters victory yesterday with an efficient display of great driving, sensible approach shots and nice putting. He won comfortably by four shots in the end.
With the creation of LIV Golf and the dilution of the professional golf game the LIV fanboys are always shouting about how the golf rankings are not correct and how their players are amongst the best in the world. But how do you gauge their performance in “competitions” with no qualification?
This weekend climaxed with the WGC World Matchplay final – the winner of this weekend was matchplay. This is the final ever playing of this event and it highlighted what a different and fascinating format this version of golf really is.
This weekend was a somewhat weird viewing experience for me with regards to the golf. Being a total golf junkie I was limited to highlights in YouTube and watching the #livBroadcast live to get my weekly fix. Here are some of the highlights.
There were some interesting results this weekend on the major tours this week. One tournament that I didn’t see, other than highlights was the South African Open on the #LET. Aside from the margin of victory, 4 shots, there were two stand out performances.
There was no DP World Tour action this weekend but there were a couple of other noticeable happenings elsewhere. Former world number one Jin Young Ko returned to the winners circle in Singapore.
This was a non-elevated event for the USPGA but that didn’t mean there was no excitement. A water ball on the 72nd hole led to a playoff. The LPGA went to the 72nd hole. The DP World tour effectively had 3 players with a chance of winning on the final hole. Oh, and there was LIV.
3 of the major golf tours had events this weekend and some familiar names were on top of the podiums. A big shout out to Jon Rahm, Thorbjørn Olesen and Lydia Ko. Here are some of the talking points.
Tiger Woods, considered by many as the greatest golfer all time, announced his return to competitive golf for the Genesis Invitational that takes place at the Riviera Club this week. But what makes Tiger so good? Here are 5 reasons why Tiger is the GOAT.
Congratulations Max Homa. What a pleasant surprise to open the PGA app to see Max on top of the leaderboard.
A little bit on fanboy-ism #golf
Both the DP World Tour & the USPGA had quite remarkable winners this weekend. Both worthy of a mention – congrats Max Homa and Thorbjorn Olesen.
That was some week wasn’t it? From late Friday afternoon, it looked as if newly crowned number one Scottie Scheffler would run away with The Masters. To be fair he made it a lot closer than it needed to be but it all added to the final day drama.
There is no DP World Tour golf this week so there has been a little void in my life. However, there is a lot of chatter about Phil Mickelson and the Saudi golf league.
