‘If the Tour pros haven’t got a clue how they stand, there’s not much hope for the rest of us.’

WHEN it comes to working out points and who stands where in the season-long FedEx Cup race, which comes to a mouth-watering climax at the Tour Championship this weekend, the Official World Ranking system is made to look like a gimme. If you’re new to the FedEx Cup, then welcome. If ... 

'American sports fans have already cherished a Jordan. It's now time for them to start cherishing another'

AMERICAN sports fans have already cherished a Jordan. It's now time for them to start cherishing another. Fresh off a tie for second in his Masters debut, having led the season's first major by two shots at one point on the front nine Sunday, the fresh-faced 20-year-old from Dallas looks ready ... 

April 9 marks Seve's birthday. Golfmagic assistant editor Andy Roberts writes about his memories of the late Spanish maestro...

MY love affair with the great Spanish maestro all began as a four-year-old, trudging around Wentworth’s West Course in 1991 with a plastic golf club to hand, wearing a pair of baby tartan trousers that Ian Poulter would have been proud of. Yes, my parents dressed me like a pimp. Face, ... 

He might be ineligible for Augusta but that hasn't prevented the man they call 'Lumpy' from getting involved

TIM HERRON hasn't won on the PGA Tour since 2006. He also hasn't won a Green Jacket before. He therefore doesn't get to tee up at Augusta National this week. But that hasn't prevented the man they label 'Lumpy' from releasing his own Tim Herron Scripting for Masters week, which by ... 

Golfmagic's Charlie Lemay was disgusted by what he saw unfold during the final round

RORY MCILROY had fiancée Caroline Wozniacki in his corner as he stumbled to a ninth place finish at the Dubai Desert Classic yesterday and I think she was to blame for the 24-year-old’s demise on the final day. Of course Rory came out and said he didn't have his A-Game with ... 

Why Fitzpatrick and Hull will become golf's 21st century legends

In my personal view, Sunday, August 18 will go down in golf history alongside March 7, 1744 (when the Rules of Golf were first introduced), Friday June 16, 1899 (when Golf Illustrated was first published) and April 9, 1957 (the birth of Seve Ballesteros, legendary inspiration of the modern game). All ... 

Crowd noise during final round of WGC-Bridgestone divides opinion at Golfmagic

A bizarre scenario unfolded during the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone on Sunday. Tiger Woods was seven clear, the tournament was over. Even he looked a little bored out there, running putts up to the hole and playing safe on occasion. There were to be no Sunday roars or ... 

I did and now I can't wait to re-discover my love of golf

During those dark, damp days of winter and early Spring I lost my appetite to play golf. I'd even lapsed my club membership because it no longer offered good value as I approached maturing years and had other agendas.But despite having not played a full round for several months, ...  ... 

How it has changed through the years

The Masters badge, handed out to patrons - they don't call them golf fans or spectators at Augusta National - is one of the most sought-after tickets in sport and is more exclusive than a pass to the Olympics 100 metres final. It has evolved quite a lot through the years ... 

How McCartney and friends raised money for instruments

Last week marked the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles’ multi-million selling debut album ‘Please, Please Me’. You may already know that. What you might not know, however, is that three of the Fab Four – Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison – sometimes caddied to help fund the ...
