A special commemorative poster has been released to promote the 100th staging of the Australian Open later this year.
There have been some golden eras for the Australian Open, perhaps most noticeably when across two decades the Stonehaven Cup was basically shared between Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Peter Thomson.
And most of the great champions of golf have won the Australian Open.
Apart from those three immortal names, there’s Greg Norman, Bobby Locke, Gene Sarazen, Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer, ...
Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell’s 2016 PGA Tour status is secure with the Tour revealing they have added a one-year exemption on to the two years in winning the 2013 RBC Heritage Classic.
McDowell contested the minimum of 15 events but in a season capped by a best T3rd in the very first event of his 2014/15 season at the WGC – HSBC Champions but spoilt by six missed cuts to eventually also miss the FedEx Cup Play-Off Series by finishing 160th on the money list.
And as both McDowell’s ...
Current World No. 1 Rory McIlroy has some in common with the majority of the golf world and it’s being sick of the sound of hearing his own Omega TV commercial.
The commercial, shot on the eighth hole of the Emirates course in Dubai, has been driving golf fans mad with a now beyond saturation point playing during major tournaments like last week’s Barclays Championship.
Now the star of the Omega commercial seems also to have grown tired of the 30-second ad, as well.
What’s worst ...
Tiger Woods and Jason Day have struck at a great on-course relationship so much so the the pair will often text each other.
Their friendship was no more apparent during the opening two rounds of this year’s Open Championship at St. Andrews when Day and Woods were spotted often chatting between shots, and with the third member of the group Louis Oosthuizen virtually left out in the cold when it came to on-course chit chat.
However Day admits he’s not up to Woods level mentally so much ...
Rory McIlroy revealed he likens himself to South African great Gary Player when bizarrely asked who of golf’s legendary ‘Big Three’ would he be.
The golf world currently is talking of new ‘Big Three’ in McIlroy along with double Major winning Jordan Spieth and new PGA Championship winner Jason Day.
“I would say Gary, probably as he was the smallest,” he said with a smile.
“I guess I would be. Yeah, I would probably be Player, I would say. I mean ...
Daniel Gaunt was again singing the praise of the person who has been instrumental in a dramatic change of fortunes for the 36-year old Aussie and that’s supercaddy John ‘Ronnie’ Roberts.
‘Ronnie’ is again on the bag and with the duo storming their way to a share of the lead on the opening day of the M2M Russian Open in suburban Moscow.
The 36-year old Gaunt, who with ‘Ronnie’ by his side secured a European best of second in the recent Made in Denmark event ...
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy has been afforded a second season-ending play-off green light despite being unable to contest the mandatory minimum number of tournaments on either the PGA and now the European Tour.
Last week the PGA Tour afforded McIlroy a ‘concession’ to compete in the FedEx Cup Play-Off Series given he had only contested 10 of the 15 events required.
Of course, McIlroy was out injured for some six weeks and missed the defence of his Open Championship and WGC – Bridgestone ...
