Players wary of ‘unfair’ Royal St. Georges

Published

on

It’s the first Open Championship for two years, but a trip down south to Royal St. Georges hasn’t got every golfer excited for the week ahead, with some high profile players not exactly thrilled with the venue.

The ever candid Brooks Koepka spoke on Tuesday about the course, where he made it clear that it’s not one of his favorite courses, with the many blind tee shots not to his liking.

“It’s not my favourite venue that we have played. I think Portrush and St Andrews are definitely the favourites. I haven’t seen all 18, I’ll see the back nine today. But quite a few blind tee shots, kind of hitting to nothing. Fairways are quite undulating. I don’t know, it’s not my favourite of the rotation, put it that way.

This one, it’s just not as exciting. I don’t know why. Whether it be a couple shots to nothing, a couple of blind tee shots or shots in where you can’t really see much. I’m not too big of a fan of that.”

Bernhard Langer, who finished in the top-3 here three times in his career, is another who isn’t a fan of the English golf course, telling the Daily Mail on Tuesday that: “It is, to me, the most unfair of all the courses on the rota.”

It’s also fair to assume that the course isn’t number one on Rory McIlroy’s list of favorites either, who speaking on a podcast last year, stated: “Can’t we just skip St George’s and go straight to St Andrews?”

However, it seems the Irishman has had a change of heart over the course, as speaking to media this week, McIlroy revealed that after playing a softer Royal St. Georges at the weekend, the venue seems improved to him:

“Even before all the rain, the course was quite lush and green and we weren’t seeing the bounces that we’re accustomed to getting here.” he said. “I walked away after the weekend thinking this is a much better golf course than I remember.”

As for the big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau, it appears that the 27-year-old is prepared to dial it back this week in order to stay out of the “diabolical hay” surrounding the fairways.

Jon Rahm provides origin of his famous abbreviated back-swing

Published

on

Curious about why one of the most powerful golfers takes such an abbreviated backswing? On media Tuesday of the Open Championship, reigning U.S. Open champion, Jon Rahm, finally provided us with an answer.

“I was born with a club foot on my right leg, which means for anybody that’s sensitive about that, my right leg up to my ankle was straight, my foot was 90 degrees turned inside and basically upside down,” Rahm explained.

This malady required the relocation of multiple bones in his right leg and ankle, and it drastically decreased his stability on the right side of his body. As a result, the six-time PGA Tour winner had to learn how to generate power more efficiently.

Rahm elaborated, “I didn’t take a full swing because my right ankle doesn’t have the mobility or stability to take it. I learned at a very young age that I’m going to be more efficient at creating power and be consistent with a short swing.”

Add one more wrinkle to the incredibly impressive and unique story of Jon Rahm. The Spaniard currently sits as the odds on favorite to win the Open Championship across all major sports books.
