Kaymer Coming Back - US Open 2019

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to look ahead to this week’s US Open at Pebble Beach: “I’ve always believed that one of the toughest issues an elite golfer has to deal with is the monotony of competition. Once you’ve done the rounds of the same schedule and the same tournaments for four or five years in a row, there’s an element of monotony that creeps in and it’s a big hurdle to overcome.

Tiger- the frontrunner

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to look ahead to the second Major of the season: “Tiger Woods is my favourite for this week’s US PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. If he can pick up where he left off at the Masters last month, he’s the man to beat. Some people have suggested that he will be at a disadvantage because he hasn’t played competitively since Augusta but he is the ultimate professional and I believe that whatever he is doing, it is by design. You can rest assured that as far as he’s concerned, he’s doing the right thing. If he felt the best way... Read more...
