Masters of all we survey... - Issue 122
While the results of the survey that went out with issue 121 will not be collated for several weeks yet, when it comes to the question of the format in which you prefer to receive and digest Golf International, the message is loud and clear: good old-fashioned print is the runaway winner.
All about being the best... - Issue 121
And we thought the timing of Pete Cowen’s ‘Signature Drills’ instruction piece last issue was something of a coup!
Tiny margins, a gulf in class - Issue 119
Such are the vagaries of golf: two weeks after his performance at Muirfield, Yorkshire’s Matt Fitzpatrick battled his way to the final of the English Amateur in the rain at Frilford Heath, where large galleries turned out to see him add this prestigious title to the silver medal he won as low amateur at the Open.
Faldo plays it one more time - Issue 118
The Faldo-Leadbetter phenomenon that was so symmetrically rubber-stamped at Muirfield in 1987 gave rise not only to the second coming of the man who would become Britain’s greatest ever golfer but also established David Leadbetter as the most sought-after coach in golf’s modern era.
Unstuck at 15...or was he? - Issue 117
The Tiger saga: did he or didn’t he? Well, he said he did. The world No. 1 was frank in revealing his strategy in his press conference following his second round at Augusta.
The intensity is back - Issue 116
So, after all the analysis of the swing, the slo-mo scrutiny of whatever is the mystery that he is working on unravelling with his deep-thinking coach, Sean Foley, it turns out that all Tiger really needed to jump-start the second phase of his career...
What Olympic golf should be - Issue 115
You read it here first. The lead story in our Amateur pages last issue featured an interview with England’s Georgia Hall, Europe’s top-ranked amateur and the women’s world No.4 after a season littered with quite outstanding individual and team performances...
Anchors away! - Issue 114
So, hands up all of you who asked for a long- or belly-putter for Christmas? Right, well don’t get too attached to it (Ho! Ho! Ho!)...
Poulter steals golf’s greatest show - Issue 113
This may not be styled a ‘souvenir’ issue but to all intents and purposes it is exactly that as we celebrate surely the greatest Ryder Cup ever played...
The launch of a new era - Issue 110
Six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo may have retired from tournament golf in 2007 but that doesn’t stop Britain’s greatest ever player hitting balls at every opportunity...
Dressed to compress on the French Riviera - Issue 109
A 48-hour dash to the south of France with the promise of lodging and golf at Royal Mougins will usually do the trick when it comes to getting the attention of journalists experienced in the art of sifting through marketing propaganda.
One of the best of British - Issue 108
This year marks a special 50th anniversary for a certain British icon – and I’m not talking abut the Ford Cortina. More a vintage roller. Tony Jacklin turned professional in 1962, and after serving his traditional apprenticeship as an assistant in his home county of Lincolnshire he became one of the most exciting and successful players on the ‘home’ circuit before establishing himself as a major force in world golf with that epic victory in the 1969 Open at Royal Lytham.
Love golf? We have an App for that - Issue 107
Sooner or later even the most stubborn of traditionalists among us are going to have to accept the fact that FootJoy really have terminated the Classics, and it's not all been some sort of strung-out marketing stunt, and, secondly, those blades we insist on carrying around really don't give us the margins we need these days. Sad, but true. We move on.
Tiger trapped in a snare of his own making - November 2011
There is something perversely satisfying about watching Tiger Woods wrestle with his recalcitrant swing, a warming reassurance that, when all is said and done, the game of golf always wins in the end; that no matter how talented an individual you may be, ultimately the integrity of the discipline itself is always dormie up.
An issue packed full of bright ideas - September 2011
Our cover story this issue features a teaching professional new to the pages of Golf International but certainly not to the demands of standing in front of a camera and getting his message across. Scott Cranfield has forged a career through a desire to understand the bigger picture as to what it takes to learn to play better golf and he makes a sharp debut with a highly visual lesson designed to get you thinking more about what the club should be doing and less about what it actually takes to make that happen.
Pure genius from Ireland’s finest - August 2011
A very warm welcome to what must surely rank as the most auspicious issue of this magazine to have been published in its 14-year history as we celebrate not one but two home-grown major champions in as many months. Outstanding achievements both – and all the more remarkable for the wider context and manner in which they were individually won.
Privileged to have been there - July 2011
The story behind this photograph is special for many reasons – not least because it was taken on the vast beach in Pedrena where, as a young boy, Seve famously took his first – and we’ll have to assume anything but tentative – swings with home-made clubs, scuttling pebbles across the sand.
Seve - June 2011
As the last remaining pages of this issue were sent to press in the early hours of Saturday May 7 it was announced that Seve Ballesteros had finally lost his battle with cancer following the brain tumour first diagnosed in October 2008. According to the five-time major champion’s official website, Seve passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family at his lifelong family home in Pedreña. He was 54.
Don’t you just love it when a plan(!) comes together - May 2011
Having survived the inevitable hangover following the publication of our 100th issue, so carried away were we by the fact we actually achieved the magical ‘ton up’ it was something of a shock to discover the speed with which the deadline for this spring edition loomed on the calendar.
Now we’ve hit 100, the Sky’s the limit - March 2011
When you actually sit down to think about it, condensing all the things you love about golf into a black-and-white Top-10 is actually a pretty tough thing to do. Staring at a blank sheet of paper, where to begin?
All in all, a dream season... - January 2011
Speculation as to whomight walk away with the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award was as irrelevant as ever around the time this issue went to press – although at least this year golf was included in the discussion. How could it not be?
Now that's entertainment - November 2010
I make no excuses whatsoever for the indulgent coverage of the Ryder Cup that you are about to enjoy within this celebration issue – forget the rain and the mud and all of that tedious hanging about, the 2010 Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor will be remembered as one of the greatest sporting events of all time...
Into the Dragon's Den - September 2010
It's been quite some time since I last found myself in the position of delivering a few words of thanks to 'all the people who have made this possible...', the greenkeepers, playing partners, catering staff and so on (certainly while holding any sort of silverware - even a spoon!), but on the strength of the evidence you'll find inside our weighty Ryder Cup preview issue there are a number of people I would like to acknowledge, first for the generosity of their time but above all for the passion and enthusiasm they share for their subject.
Soaking up the unique atmosphere - July 2010
You can imagine my excitement: a scratch player in my early 20s, and enjoying immensely a new role as Instruction Editor at Golf World magazine, I had been invited to play in the pro-am preceding the 1988 Dunhill Cup at St Andrews. It gets better. Tee time - 11am; playing professional - Sandy Lyle. Sandy Lyle! In his heyday! The '85 Open Champion and reigning Masters Champion. At the Home of Golf!
Tiger in search of that California swing - June 2010
When you invite half a dozen experts to analyse and critique a golf swing, it's not unreasonable to expect a range of opinion and, well, spark off something of a debate - after all, there's nothing most pros and media-savvy commentators like better than to tee-up their spiel and show off their knowledge.
Welcome to our Masters Review - May 2010
From the moment you arrive at the front of the Augusta National clubhouse you are struck by the scale of the place; by the unbelievable movement in the course, the sweeping fall and rise in elevation that characterises Alistair McKenzie's masterpiece as it twists through avenues of pine - pictures are hamstrung in their ability to convey quite what an unforgiving shot-making challenge the course represents.
Over blown... in more ways than one! - March 2010
Tiger’s mea culpa was stage-managed to a tee, and yet the scripted monologue revealed very little, throwing up more questions than it did answers. You could say it was blown out of all context.
More great golf with the experts - January 2010
Improve your driving with Pete Cowen and Europe's No.1 - and prepare for more of the same world-class teaching in 2010 as Gi increases in frequency to publish 8 times in Ryder Cup year...
Memories of a close encounter - October 2009
For the cover story this issue I travelled to Worksop Golf Club to interview Lee Westwood. Our paths had crossed once before, many years ago, back in his amateur days. But surely he wouldn't remember that...
Turnberry was all Tom's - August 2009
Turnberry was magnificent, Tiger imperfect, Tom Watson simply incredible as he set about his week's work, so nearly writing perhaps the most remarkable chapter in golfing history. And we thought 1977 was good!
