Porsche European Open Review

On a weekend in which England seemed destined to conquer the much-favoured French, we saw the England Ladies take to the football pitch in the UEFA Women's Championship to defeat French opposition for the first time in more than forty years. Meanwhile, England's Jordan Smith sealed his first-ever Eu...

Open Championship Review

 

Winning a Major championship is something that every golf fan dreams of. Winning three Major championships is something most golf fans daren't even dream of. But winning three Major championships by the age of 23 is just obscene. We're talking about bedtime stories in the Tiger Woods household. A...

Open Championship : No Place Like Home

The year was 1998, the tournament was the Open Championship and the venue was Royal Birkdale. The man (or boy) was Justin Rose. Just 17 years old, Rose was still an amateur- but you wouldn't have known. As a truly remarkable week of golf drew to a close, Justin Rose prepared a 50-year chip on the 18...

Open Championship : First-Timer Favourites

It would be easy to back a favourite in this year's Open Championship. Dustin Johnson comes in at 14/1 and he is the best in the world, after all. Jordan Spieth is another obvious choice, holding level-odds with the World No. 1, whilst Sergio Garcia will look to snowball following his Masters victor...

Scottish Open Review

As players prepare for the British Major, we should probably have anticipated the field at Dundonald Links playing with a point to prove. The likes of Padraig Harrington and Ian Poulter certainly proved their point with scores of -8 for T4 and -7 for T9 respectively. However, the veterans weren't th...

Whilst it may be easy for us to overlook the importance of the Scottish ...

Atthaya Thitikul | Champion at 14

When I was 14 years old I spent my Sundays kicking a football around the park and doing last-minute homework for school on Monday morning (admittedly far more of the prior than the latter). My parents always said I should be doing something more productive with my time, but what can a 14-year-old ki...

Rahm-arkable | Irish Open Review

25 tournaments, 11 top ten finishes and 2 victories. Not a bad record for a 22-year-old with less than one year as a professional golfer. Jon Rahm may only be in his second season as a professional, but the young Spaniard is already taking the golfing world by storm. In 2017 he has finished in the t...
