Are the rules of golf about to be made simpler?

Sep 2nd, 2016

"The game is too slow, too hard and there's too many rules. I wouldn't know where to begin with how many rules there should be. I would think as minimal as possible. And we don't need all these dashes and a's and b's and c's. It's too confusing." Kevin Kisner.

Carding 202 when you play off 2.2

Jul 20th, 2019

The GolfPunk team love the game of golf and are big supporters of the idea of improving the etiquette on the course and in general.  However, this week the big news running around social media was about the US amateur golfer that carded an impressively poor 194 for 18 holes and things got worse when the Florida State Golf Association confirmed it was actually a 131 over par 202!

Gmac Falls foul of 3-minute rule

Gmac Falls foul of 3-minute rule

Jul 19th, 2019

Ok time for a rerun of our GolfPunk rant. The three-minute rule is a good one and it is intended to speed up play like the other good rule change, putting with the pin in. I am sure most pros did not expect to suffer too much from the rule change but then they are not playing Royal Portrush every day.

Justin Rose avoids penalty at Bay Hill

Justin Rose avoids penalty at Bay Hill

Mar 6th, 2020

Trial by television was with us again at the Bay Hill Classic on Thursday. No Patrick Reed this time but rather the squeaky-clean Justin Rose. Rose had a tricky chip from the back of the 11th which he ran some 10 feet past the pin but did he move the ball at address?

Pepperell's Masters chances take a dent

Mar 5th, 2020

A careless error on his card has dumped England's Eddie Pepperell out of the Qatar Masters at the Education City Golf Club in Doha. The 2018 champion had hoped to find that form of two years ago and force his way into the world's top 50 in time to qualify for The Masters.

Reed is Captain Oblivious

Mar 2nd, 2020

David Feherty didn’t hold back in a recent interview for Sports Illustrated when asked about Patrick Reed. Feherty reckons that Reed should be known as "Captain Oblivious" given his response to the furore that has followed since his infamous rules infringement.

Patrick Reed swerves the issue

Patrick Reed swerves the issue

Feb 21st, 2020

It was inevitable that Patrick Reed, who is playing at the WGC event in Mexico City this week, was going to be asked about the latest comments from Bob Kostis and Brooks Koepka. Talking after Thursday’s first round he managed to dance around the question.   

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Feb 20th, 2020

We thought Brooks Koepka had rather put the boot into Patrick Reed with his comments about building sandcastles but ex-CBS golf commentator Peter Kostis went even further this week inferring that Reed was a serial cheat.

Koepka joins in on Reed saga

Feb 19th, 2020

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bunker, or waste area, the Patrick Reed saga pops its nose out again. This time its the world number two Brooks Koepka giving his two pennyworth and he, as usual, does not pull any punches. Koepka described Reed’s actions as “building sandcastles in the sand.”

The long putter is alive and kicking

The long putter is alive and kicking

Feb 19th, 2020

It was a fine victory for Adam Scott last weekend, he is a great ball striker, but I must confess I rather sighed when I saw him using a long putter to great effect once again. It was a similar feeling to that I had when Scott won the Masters back in 2013. I’m sorry, but I am with the brigade who consider these long putters cheat sticks.

Feb 9th, 2020

It was great to see Graeme McDowell win again on the European Tour but had the tour applied the slow play rules more strictly come Sunday afternoon might it have been a different story?

The Patrick Reed Saga

The Patrick Reed Saga

Jan 13th, 2020

I didn’t think I would hear myself say this, but I feel sorry for Patrick Reed. Don’t get me wrong the guy has handled the whole affair badly and he clearly was borderline cheating at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas last December. However, due to the Tour’s insistence that the matter has been dealt with it has basically thrown the American to the lions, who in this case are the media and the golfing public.

Patrick Reed shame on you

Patrick Reed shame on you

Dec 7th, 2019

To say that Patrick Reed is not one of the most popular players on tour would be somewhat of an understatement. However, he has done little for his stock in trade with his blatant breaking of the rules at the Hero World Challenge. Some would say he is very lucky to get away with just a two-stroke penalty.

One Ball Rule costs Pro 8 shots

Nov 17th, 2019

In a week where there has been much discussion about the Billy Mayfair affair Russell Henly has reminded us all that the vast majority of tour players are honourable golfers. On dishing out signed golf balls to fans after finishing his second round at the Mayakoba Golf Classic Henly realised he had violated the One Ball rule and called an eight shot  penalty on himself.

Oh, Billy Billy Billy

Oh, Billy Billy Billy

Nov 15th, 2019

Colin Montgomerie won the Champions Tour’s Invesco QQQ Championship last weekend, but the big story was one Billy Mayfair and the breaking of not one but two rules of golf. The story does not paint Mr Mayfair in a good light and the same must be said about the Champions Tour who seem to be trying to sweep the incidents under the carpet.

Want to hit it straight

Want to hit it straight

Aug 3rd, 2019

If you are playing partner or opponent is hitting the ball remarkably straight have a quick nosey at what ball he is playing. If you see the name ‘Polara’ then that will explain why and you can show the seaky devil a red card, as the ball is illegal. Having said that it also sounds fun!

We’ve had enough slow play

We’ve had enough slow play

Jul 22nd, 2019

Brooks Koepka had just teed off in the final round of the Open. We then heard ‘on the tee, JB Holmes from the USA’, the camera zoomed in on the man sitting in third place at Royal Portrush, then nothing. The guy looked confused as he suddenly wasn’t sure about something. Was it the wind had shifted? Had he changed his mind at to which club to take? Or perhaps he’d left the cooker on back at the house? Whatever it was he’d been standing on that tee for a good few minutes waiting for his tee time and he clearly was not ready.

You shout fore – right?

You shout fore – right?

Jul 20th, 2019

It’s etiquette right? You hit the ball in the direction of another person on a golf course, you shout ‘fore’. It instilled in you from almost your first shot on a golf course, be you ten year’s old or eighty. However, it seems for some professionals that once they have reached the lofty heights of the tour this unwritten rule no longer applies to them.

Westwood’s Embedded Ball

Westwood’s Embedded Ball

Jul 20th, 2019

We all love a drop zone

We all love a drop zone

Jul 17th, 2019

Every golfer loves a drop zone, except for the ones where you’ve just plonked it into the middle of that lake or alligator infested swamp! The pros in particular like it when there find themselves in or around a grandstand and they simply walk to a nicely mown little patch close by. Fast forward to Royal Portrush and the venue for the 2019 Open Championship.

Which is the immovable object

Which is the immovable object

Jul 5th, 2019

Despite no mortal being able to move it on their own the answer is the boulder. As Tiger Woods found out to his benefit at the 1999 Phoenix Open when a friendly rules official suggested it was a loose impediment.

Mark your balls!

Mark your balls!

Jul 5th, 2019

I have played in a couple of competitions over the last few weeks and twice on the first tee my playing partner has announced they are playing a Titleist Pro VI number 1, no markings, no logos, nothing, just a fresh new pill straight out of the box.

Golf Channel moving home

Mar 8th, 2020

The Golf Channel has decided to up sticks and move its base from Orlando, Florida to Stamford, Connecticut, home of its parent company Comcast.

World Golf Hall of Fame lists finalists

Mar 4th, 2020

Premier Golf League

Premier Golf League

Feb 18th, 2020

For those of a certain age and most likely from this side of the pond will see parallels between the move by the proposed Premier Golf League and the World Series Cricket (WSC) competition of the late 1970s. Both ventures share two fundamental drivers, the chance for players to earn more money and access to broadcast rights for the organisers.

Fittest golfer in the world?

Fittest golfer in the world?

Feb 9th, 2020

Our Bryson may not quite be ripping it up on the golf course but word has got to us that he made the Sports Illustrated Top 50 Most Fit Athletes. Quite excited to learn who had made this Top 50 ( 25  men and 25 women) we were somewhat disappointed to find the definition of ‘fit’ not quite matching GolfPunk’s.

Golf Hall of Fame changes

Golf Hall of Fame changes

Jan 23rd, 2020

Call us old cynics but are the latest set of changes at the Golf Hall of Fame just a dressed way to get Tiger Woods inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame a few years earlier and boost the quality of the list of possible inductees for the 2021 draft? The rules were only changed some four years ago to move the minimum age from 40 to 50 and now it is being edged back to 45.

PUMA grabs a slice of Beef

Jan 15th, 2020

Brooks Koepka Player of the Year

Brooks Koepka Player of the Year

Jan 9th, 2020

With all due respect to Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods et al we think the Golf Writers Association of America (“GWAA”) were spot on in voting for Brooks Koepka as Player of the Year for 2019. Koepka’s performance at the four majors was undeniable impressive – to win one, finish second in two and tie fourth in the other is quite some feat.

Stewart Golf launch HottMitt

Dec 3rd, 2019

We must say we like the look of the new Stewart Golf HottMitt. Who wouldn’t want toasty warm hands on the golf course? The mobile phone or device holder and charger does look like a bit of techfoolery (Is that a new word? - Ed) but each to their own. But might there be other uses?

A golf shop but not as we know it

Nov 15th, 2019

Honma, that premium brand from Japan has just launched its first shop in Paris. However, it is no American Golf, or standard pro shop, and it would not look out of place on London’s Bond Street. In fact, we would not be surprised if we saw George Clooney walking out of it with a Nespresso in one hand and a Honma wedge in the other.

The most expensive finger in golf?

Oct 2nd, 2019

Poor old Bio Kim. The Korean who is leading the money list on the Korean tour, has been handed a three-year suspension for raising his middle finger at members of the crowd at the weekend. This seems a rather harsh punishment and will cost the young man a lot of dosh.

GOLFPUNK GETTING GOLF FIT

Jul 27th, 2019

There is no other way to say this but last week was a killer.  The workouts alongside a heavy workload and a couple of work functions were tough (its important at this point in case our other halves are reading to emphasis these soirees were work related and we really didn’t enjoy them!).  However, we made it through to the other side and are looking forward to next week!
