AUGUSTA CAN PAVE WAY FOR CHANGE

AUGUSTA CAN PAVE WAY FOR CHANGE

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez about the new Distance Insights Project Report that was published by the R&A and USGA last week: ”I believe Augusta National could start to play a big role in showing the way forward now that the R&A and USGA have finally agreed the modern-day golf ball travels too far. With the game’s rule-makers talking about bringing in local regulations for certain venues and events, the Masters is the one tournament where the top players compete on the same course every year and therefore experimentation would be possible.

Jack Nicklaus - What a man! What a career! What a life!

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to pay tribute to the great Jack Nicklaus on the Golden Bear’s 80th birthday: “What a man! What a career! What a life! I’d like to use this moment to salute Jack. Wow, 80 is a real milestone for him and I don’t know of anybody who’s had a more fulfilled life than he has. He’s been a fantastic ambassador for golf for decades but more than that, he’s somehow managed to balance his businesses, his family and competitive golf better than anyone I know. I know it wasn’t always plain sailing. He had some problems with his... Read more...
