LIV star splits with swing coach after working together for 14 years

Published

on

After fourteen years together, LIV Golf’s Adrian Meronk has decided to part ways with his swing coach, Matthew Tipper.

On Monday, Tipper announced the split via social media.

“After 14 years sometimes things just come to an end. Last week Adrian decided he wanted to go a new way and I have to respect that decision. I’m proud of everything we achieved together.

“I knew in 2010 he was a great talent and he has only gone to prove that all over the world. To Pietro Gobinho and Stuart Beck, thank you for being amazing caddies when Adrian needed you. Your support and co-operation has been invaluable and I thank you both.

“I want to publicly thank Adrian for allowing me to sit in the best seat in the house for 14 years.

“It’s now time to start my new chapter in the USA alongside my mentor James Sieckmann and I’m excited to go to my first Korn Ferry Tour event later next month. As always tomorrow we begin again.”

Meronk is having a poor season by his standards on LIV. The reigning DP World Tour player had some solid finishes early in the year, finishing T9 and T6 at LIV Las Vegas and LIV Jeddah, but missed the cut at the Masters and has failed to crack the top-10 in his past three LIV starts.

‘He’s going to rule the world’ – Major champ tips Ludvig Aberg to overtake Scottie Scheffler

Published

on

While speaking on his “Beemer’s Best Bets” podcast, golf analyst Rich Beem said he believes Ludvig Aberg could soon challenge Scottie Scheffler to be the best player in the world.

“He’s going to rule the world. He’s going to be world number one at some point in time. I think he’s going to overtake Scottie Scheffler believe it or not. It’s just a matter of him getting out there and seeing golf courses.

“In another, couple, three years, this guy is going to be unbeatable. I mean he’s got such a great attitude about the game and a swing that you’d just love to fall out of bed with every day.”

USGA chief reveals ‘real interest’ in driver as part of distance rollback plan

Published

on

While speaking ahead of the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, the CEO of the USGA, Mike Whan, addressed the distance issue in golf.

While most of the conversation thus far has centered around the golf ball, Whan said that the driver may be next.

“I would say comfortably speaking for both Martin (Slumbers of the R&A) and I, we had and have a real interest in figuring out a way to provide a difference as it relates to the driver, as well.

“To date, we didn’t really come up with something that wouldn’t have a much more negative effect on the recreational game. What we did on the golf ball is going to have much more of an impact at [the elite] level than at the average level. When we started talking about changes in the driver or driving equipment, it was just the opposite. Much more significant impact across the board than just at the elite level.

“I think we said this when we announced [in December], and if we didn’t, I will just tell you, we shelved it for now because we thought it was time to make a decision and put it on there, but we didn’t retire the idea. We just didn’t, quite frankly, have an idea that we believed was worthy of going to the market yet. But I would just put a ‘yet’ on that statement.”

The potential non-conforming list for drivers could impact amateurs, but it’s also possible that a Model Local Rule could be put in place to make sure the equipment modifications would only impact the game at the professional level.

Specifics aside, it seems that as of now it would be a safe bet to expect some changes with the driver in the not-too-distant future.
