Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to look at the golfing year ahead: “Golf’s in a great place as we start the new year, the new decade. The sponsors seem to be happy, money is pouring into the game, there are so many good players at the top of the sport and so much to look forward to. Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing if Rory McIlroy can complete his own career Grand Slam of the majors by winning the Masters in April.
