‘No matter how good you get, you can always get better and that’s the exciting part’. This line was said by Tiger Woods, and it looks like he just gets better with time and experience. Without any doubts, Tiger Woods is one of the most successful golfers of all time. At the age of 21, Woods was already the youngest golfer to ever win a record score. And now Woods has made the headlines again during the Hero World Challenge. During this game, Woods made a shot of seven-under-par 65.
As the 2016/17 golf season starts to gain momentum and the big guns come back from a well-earned break, we can look forward to the first Golf major of the season. The Masters is a very special tournament in golf and probably the most prestigious.
Once you’ve climbed to the top of the mountain, the quickest way to ground is to fall hard and fall fast. Jordan Spieth has found out about that analogy the hard way.
After bagging two majors and a host of PGA Tour silverware in 2015, the 23-year-old has fallen on rather hard times this season. A sluggish start appeared to be assuaged at The Masters, where Spieth – the defending champion and the man widely tipped to make it two in two – had one arm in the Green Jacket after a blistering opening 54 holes.
It’s a great time to be an emerging international golfer, even in the age of Jordan Spieth. While golf used to be dominated by Tiger Woods and the young American guns, it’s becoming an increasingly global game. British players, Australian players, and even South African players are finding themselves at the top of leaderboards with much more consistency. Today’s game is dominated by players like Rory Mcilroy, Jason Day, and even Danny Willet, the surprising Englishman who took home the green jacket at Augusta National.
Paul Casey will not be able to feature in the 2016 Ryder Cup after rejecting the opportunity to rejoin the European Tour next season.
