    Cant believe Justin Thomas is featured on that. Sad day for golf and European Tour.

      Why? Because he said f***t? Big deal. The word ‘queer’ was regarded as derogatory at one time and now it is fashionable for members of the gay community to celebrate the word and use it to describe themselves. If Thomas had aimed this word at someone else then, yeah, he should get the flak he’s been getting but this was a comment borne out of frustration and clearly aimed at himself. He’s apologised now so give the guy a break and stop trying to destroy everyone who makes a mistake. As for WRX , shame on you for not allowing comments on this article.

Augusta National is… hiring a bartender?

Published

on

Iconic golf club and host site of the Masters, Augusta National, is in fact hiring, although it is not the type of job we were expecting! That’s right, a recent advertisement is calling for… a bartender.

The ideal candidate must be able to, “provide members and guests with the finest food and drink accompanied by attentive and gracious service, while maintaining the strict confidentiality of all club business.” Sounds about right.

Experience wise, one year of bartending experience is required as well as a high school diploma or equivalent. Other vacancies at the club include a Front Desk Assistant, Cook, and Housekeeper, just to name a few.

Since another bid at Masters tickets was unsuccessful, time to sharpen up on our mixology!

Check out how the clubs in pro’s bags have changed through the years

Published

on

As technology continues to improve in golf equipment, it is no surprise to see that PGA Tour professionals have adapted and made changes to the contents of their golf bags throughout the years.

Check out this post from @sms_on_tour , who tracked the average clubs used by players over the last 15 Opens, to see what types of clubs have become more popular over the last 15 years.

There are a few major takeaways. Firstly, pro golfers seem to be carrying more wedges these days. Phil Mickelson raised eyebrows when he first experimented with carrying four wedges, yet over the last 15 years, we have seen a steady and progressive trend towards many Tour pros deploying a similar approach.

Secondly, there’s been a clear increase in hybrids/utility irons at the expense of regular 2-irons and 3-irons. In theory, this is not surprising given the technological increases and general playability of today’s top hybrids and driving irons. With that being said, Ben Hogan must be turning over in his grave!
