3 Minute Rule – What 3 Minute Rule?

3 Minute Rule – What 3 Minute Rule?

Apr 20th, 2019

Following on from our recent rant concerning etiquette the writer took to the course this morning. It was a stableford competition (points system) a normally quicker format as a lost ball is not the end of the world and if you can’t score on a hole you pick up.

IS ETIQUETTE DYING IN GOLF?

Apr 19th, 2019

Etiquette - “The customary code of polite behaviour in society or among members of a particular profession or group.” There were certain sporting maxims when we grew up.  Football is a gentleman's game played by thugs, and rugby is a thug’s game played by gentlemen.  Cricket and golf were games for protaganists who played with a significant side order of honour.

Why we are entering another golden age for Europe at the Masters

Why we are entering another golden age for Europe at the Masters

Apr 10th, 2019

Remember when Europeans dominated the Masters? From 1980 to 2000, the tournament was won 11 times by European golfers. Since then, not so much, with only two winners in the last 18 years. It's worth noting, however, that those wins (Danny Willett and Sergio Garcia) make up two of the last three Masters. Maybe the transition of power at Augusta has already begun?
