In God we Trust... the rest pay cash!

December 19 2014 by Stuart Barber

Rory McIlroy did not win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, although Paul McGinley won the Coach of the Year Award, and our glorious Ryder Cup team had to give best to the Lady Rugby Players...

Think twice before you jump ……. or jump first

November 22 2014 by Stuart Barber

What a year...

December 18, 2013 by Stuart Barber

Winds, tempests, floods and pestilence - such was the stuff of the Old Testament resulting in Noah building his ark. The year 2013 has seen its fair share of all of them from the man-made horrors of Syria to the natural disaster that befell the Philippines. And what you may ask has that to do with golf?

Behind the Scenes at Muirfield - Day Three

July 20, 2013 by Stuart Barber

The third day of the Open is often referred to as "moving day". Often players break free of the pack but today the movement was mainly backwards - 11 players under par at the outset but only 3 now with red scores at the close of play.

Behind the Scenes at Muirfield - Day Two

Another beautiful calm sunny day at Muirfield with the temperature at 7am a lovely 16C: the 2 nd round is underway and Sandy Lyle is on his way down the first, playing with Boo Weekley and Niclas Fasth.

Behind the Scenes at Muirfield - Day One

July 18, 2013 by Stuart Barber

The Open Championship although played in July is subject to the vagaries of the British weather - Muirfield has had its fair share of horrendous conditions - but today the sun shone and although the wind got up in the afternoon conditions were more like the Caribbean than the UK, or dare I say without being called racist, Scotland.

That Was The Week That Was!

May 26, 2013 by Stuart Barber

Perhaps the cruellest final dagger blow for the proud sponsors of the BMW PGA Championship would have been for George O'Grady to present the trophy in pouring rain to Sergio García. Instead the sun is shining - and a tweet at 5.24 says "Largest ever single day total of 26,412 today. That's 101,542 for the week".

A bad week at the office

May 24, 2013 by Stuart Barber

This week has been the setting for the European Tour’s flagship event - sadly however, the golf has initially been overtaken by offstage happenings!

First, at the European Tour's annual awards ceremony dinner, Sergio García made a joke. If it was intended as such it totally misfired, being an offensive racist comment.

Spitting images

March 2, 2013 by Clive Carpenter

It's great to see Tiger Woods back to his old self.

I'm not referring here to his lacklustre opening rounds in the Honda Classic, just enough to scrape through to the weekend on the cut line, but for reminding us of former glories with his total mastery of the flob shot.

Match play deserves more praise

February 26, 2013 by Chris Murphy

The WGC Accenture Match Play Championship finished on Sunday and there has been no shortage of views and opinions on the event.

Personally I loved it, and I love match play in general. But I do seem to be on the other side of a coin where match play is given a hard time in relation to stroke play professional golf.

Right Man for the Job

January 18, 2013 by Clive Carpenter

Be afraid Mr Watson. The man chosen to face you at Gleneagles in 2014 may not be the 'big name' that some were calling for, but there's no doubt he is the perfect choice to avenge your 1993 victory on European soil.

Paul McGinley is a thoroughly nice man with heaps of Irish charm, but also an inner toughness and a total lack of ego that makes him the ideal 'team player'. He has never been part of a losing Ryder Cup side in five appearances as a player or Vice-Captain, and has all the credentials required to maintain that 100% record in Scotland.

Poults' Putting Perfection

January 10, 2013 by Clive Carpenter

"If you could choose one person to hole a three foot putt for your life, who would it be?", is a popular topic in the 19th.

The recent Ryder Cup would be reason enough to choose Ian Poulter, who appears to have acquired Tiger Woods' former ability to will a ball into the hole when he needs it. But there is other, more dispassionate, evidence that could mean Poulter is your lifesaver.

The Big Break

January 3, 2013 by Clive Carpenter

A very Happy and Healthy New Year to all our readers from the team at Golf Today!

We obviously wish the same to Miguel Angel Jiménez, although his is not the ideal start to a New Year, with a broken tibia and enforced absence from competition that could last right through The Masters and beyond as the result of a skiing accident on December 29.
