As the protracted Ryder Cup build-up approaches the opening tee shot at Hazeltine National in Minnesota today, the last few days of September have seen the sad passing of a golfing icon – the world's first $1m golfer – and a young Northern Irishman pocketing $11.5m after winning the FedExCup and the Tour Championship...

Earlier this month, Brazil’s Adilson da Silva hit the first golf ball in the Olympics since 1904. Despite a number of big-name male no-shows, the return of golf to the Games proved not only successful, but also captivating. Congratulations to gold medallists Justin Rose and Inbee Park, both of whom must have enjoyed Gil Hanse’s...

In our November BiteSize update we bring you the “big one” – our latest World Top 100 – which not only sees a changing of the guard at the very top of the rankings, but also nine new entries.

Our October BiteSize update focuses on our latest 2016 re-rankings for Ireland and Scotland. The process started more than twelve months ago after we decided to cast our net much wider and solicit opinions from clubs across the three countries.

Royal Porthcawl

Whistling Straits proved to be a wonderful venue for the final Major of the 2015 season and it’s undoubtedly a course that Australia’s Jason Day will hold dear in a major way for the rest of his life. There is a natural tendency to prefer courses where memories are fond. We thought it would be fun to ask England’s Robert Rock...

Gleneagles Queens

The good old British weather wreaked havoc at St Andrews earlier this month when torrential rain and high winds resulted in only the second Monday finish in Open Championship history. Jordan Speith’s grand slam hopes were dashed, but Zach Johnson’s victory makes an all-American grand slam a distinct possibility...

It was impossible to ignore the hullabaloo that surrounded the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay earlier this month. As we look forward to the Open Championship at St Andrews in July (which we’re sure will be less controversial), we’d like to share Ron Fream’s opinion… “Chambers Bay surely does need some remedial help...

The Masters may be a dim and distant memory for most of us but we’re sure Jordan Speith will forever remember his triumph at Augusta National earlier this month. This week the PGA Tour is in San Francisco for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play at the re-branded TPC Harding Park. A field of 64 will battle...

In a fortnight the Masters will be in full swing and for many the trip down Magnolia Lane heralds the start of the golfing season. Augusta National is the course that every golfer would love to play, but the reality is that very few golfers will realise the dream. That’s not to say, however, that teeing it up at this iconic property is...

It has been a bizarre start to the 2015 golfing season, with Robert Allenby claiming that he was kidnapped, robbed, beaten and dumped in a park in Hawaii after missing the cut in the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club. Meanwhile, in Italy, a cameraman smashed Tiger Woods in the face, knocking out one of his teeth...
