Justin Thomas will defend his US PGA Championship title at Bellerive Country Club this week as the year’s final major takes place.
The Open has lost the number one and two in the world at the half-way stage.
Carnoustie claimed three of the world’s top five players among its victims at the 147th Open Championship as Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm all missed the cut.
Carnoustie by and large produces quality champions, but they’re not always the most obvious.
World number one Dustin Johnson may have dominated the rankings over the last 17 months but close friend Brooks Koepka has overtaken him when it comes to major victories.
The USGA have gone back to what they know. Not surprisingly with the dark blue blazers, there are decidedly mixed feelings about this.
The “line in the sand” on distance hitting in golf has been crossed, and new data will show that the issue has to be addressed by all golf’s stakeholders, said R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers.
As fanfares to start a season go, it wasn’t exactly the most encouraging.
No-one would ever mistake the World No 1, Dustin Johnson, as a man given to long passages of self-doubt.
Yes, it’s that restorative fortnight when there is no golf anywhere in the world, so it’s time for the 11th annual T2G Bungs. No, I didn’t think I’d persist with this lame joke for so long either.
