As it did with its Arnold Palmer film project "Arnie," Golf Channel pays tribute to another legendary figure in the game: 18-time major champion and World Golf Hall of Famer Jack Nicklaus. Succinctly titled "Jack," the three-part biopic is a product of nearly 100 interviews and hundreds of hours of archived film, blending recollections from Nicklaus, as well as his playing competitors, family members, sports legends, business partners, and childhood friends, along with golf and sports media. It begins with Nicklaus' upbringing and his early golf successes, continues with a look at his many on-course career accolades, and concludes by focusing on his lasting legacy as an ambassador to the sport. Additionally, "Jack" features other "Greats of All-Time" in their respective sport, each weighing in on Nicklaus' impact on the larger sporting landscape, including Wayne Gretzky, Richard Petty, Jerry Rice, Annika Sorenstam and Kelly Slater.
I joined meandmygolf just under a month ago, after I saw the free videos on YouTube. I liked the way Piers & Andy explained the concepts, and sign... ed up for the free 30-days. I've played one year previously (2008), before I went to university, and had to drop this expensive hobby. I started playing golf again this summer, and was playing somewhere around 95-110 shots. I wanted to get better fast, and started the Break100-plan to get under 100 constently. I went through the plan a bit quicker, 2 weeks of the plan in one week, and just after I finished the last week, I pulled an amazing score of 84!!! That is absolutely insane. Something just clicked. If you want to build your game back up, or just go back to the basics, don't skip the drills. They may sound tedious and lame, but they actually help. Stick with the plan, and I guarantee it will work! Can't wait for the Break90 plan! Awesome job Piers & Andy! Read More
Rose had seven top-10s in 17 starts, but said on several occasions that his putting was buoying him during weeks when his ball-striking wasn’t crisp. The stats bear that out. He finished a career-high 17th in Strokes Gained: Putting (+0.50). He was 67th in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee, though. It was his worst showing in that statistic since 2007. The drop was mainly due to his driving accuracy, which dropped from 66% to 60%. It was the fourth-largest drop on TOUR from 2018 to 2019.
Love this website! I have only been golfing for a few months and I have looked at several other websites and programs before this one, and meandmygolf... was easily the most comprehensive and helpful resource I have found. I went from barely getting the ball in the air to quickly hitting quality golf shots fairly consistently. Thanks to your website, I already feel like a pretty educated golfer. Can't wait to watch more and continue to improve. Thanks guys! Read More
TOUR Championship: Overcame a final-round 3-over 73 to become the first Englishman to win the FedExCup. With 2,260 points, finished 41 points ahead of TOUR Championship winner Tiger Woods, joining Vijay Singh, Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlroy as international winners of the FedExCup. Joined Woods as the only player to win the FedExCup as the top-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking. Became the first player to win the FedExCup without having won a Playoffs event. Arrived at the TOUR Championship ranked No. 2 in the FedExCup, trailing only Bryson DeChambeau (who finished 19th at East Lake to fall to third in the standings). With rounds of 66-67-68-73, finished T4 and five strokes behind Woods in the tournament standings. Final-round 73 included five bogeys (Nos. 5, 9, 11, 14, 16) and two birdies (Nos. 8, 18), snapping a string of 11 consecutive rounds under par dating to the first round at the Dell Technologies Championship. The T4 marked his sixth consecutive top-10 finish at the TOUR Championship (T4/2018, T10/2017, T2/2015, T4/2014, 6th/2013, 2nd/2012).
He successfully defended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title in 2018 and he came agonisingly close to a first Major Championship when he finished runner up in the US Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills, posting a final round 63 – the equal lowest in a US Open and the lowest final round in any Major Championship – to finish one shot behind Brooks Koepka.
the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide: Held the 54-hole lead at the Memorial Tournament but dropped into a playoff with David Lingmerth after shooting a final-round, even-par 72. Lost on the third playoff hole when he couldn't match Lingmerth's par. Was looking to pick up his second win at Muirfield Village, the site where he captured his maiden PGA TOUR victory, in 2010. Ran his streak to 183 consecutive holes without a three-putt before he three-putted No. 7 in the final round.
Rose publicly focused on the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where golf was returning as a full event for the first time since 1904 in St. Louis. On the opening day, he became the first ever player to make a hole-in-one in Olympic play after recording it on the 189-yard par-3 4th hole of Gil Hanse's new Olympic Course in Barra da Tijuca using a 7-iron. Described as having an inspiring effect on the rest of the Great Britain team, Rose later gave the golf ball from that hole-in-one to gymnast Nile Wilson, who would go on to win a bronze medal in the horizontal bar.
