Andy and Piers met playing junior golf at Oxley Park Golf Club in England back in 1994. They quickly developed a strong friendship on and off the golf course, competing with and against each other before both turning professional and joining the PGA in their early 20’s. Me and My Golf was created to share their love and passion with as many golfers as possible around the world.

Class is in session with Martin Hall, an award-winning golf teacher who has taught several players on the PGA Tour, Champions Tour and LPGA Tour. Each week his unique teaching style is on display with tips and drills utilizing an in-studio golf simulator. Joined by co-host and former "Big Break" champion Blair O'Neal, Martin also answers plenty of viewer emails and incorporates other forms of social media to help drive the show's content.
His ranking continued to fall in early 2005, and in March he announced that he was quitting the European Tour and concentrating on playing on the PGA Tour. This had no apparent effect on his poor form, and by the middle of the year, he had fallen out of the World's top 100. In August of that year, he made an about-face by announcing his intention to return to the European Tour. Later the same week he had his best result of the year, leading the Buick Championship after three rounds before slipping to a third-place finish. A couple of further good results followed late in the 2005 season, and he maintained his status on the PGA Tour after all.
Backed up his FedExCup-winning 2018 season with a respectable 26th place in the season-long race in 2019. Rose won the Farmers Insurance Open to hit double digit PGA TOUR wins and was third three times over last season showing that while he’s heading towards his 40s, he won’t be slowing down any time soon. What has been great to see is Rose’s ability to keep up his putting resurrection. After being ranked outside the top 100 in 2014, 15, 16 and 17 in Strokes Gained: Putting, Rose has been 21st and 17th the last two seasons. It has allowed him to get away with a little waywardness off the tee at times. If he can marry up both parts of the game to go with his usual impeccable iron shot standards, then becoming a two-time FedExCup champion is certainly not beyond him.
He first came to prominence as an amateur at the 1998 Open Championship where he holed a dramatic shot from the rough at the final hole to finish in a tie for fourth place. He won the 2007 Order of Merit on the European Tour and was ranked in the World top ten between November 2007 and July 2008. In March 2012, Rose won his first World Golf Championship event at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and as a result, he re-entered the world top 10. After finishing second to Tiger Woods in the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational, he rose to a then career-high world ranking of 3rd. After the Open Championship in 2018 he rose to world number 2. Following a loss to Keegan Bradley in a sudden-death playoff in the 2018 BMW Championship, Rose climbed to World Number 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He won the 2018 FedEx Cup Playoffs and its US $10 million prize.
Made the cut a career-high 23 times in 25 starts, with a playoff loss at the CIMB Classic the best of his five top-10 finishes. Finished the season No. 22 in the FedExCup standings, marking the third time in four seasons he has advanced to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. Finished the season with solid play in the FedExCup Playoffs, finishing 22nd in the season-long competition. Playoffs finishes included T13 at The Barclays, T29 at the Deutsche Bank Championship, T23 at the BMW Championship and T9 at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
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.
Turkish Airlines Open: Defeated HaoTong Li with a par on the first playoff hole at the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour and regained the World No. 1 position for the second time in 2018. Successfully defended a title for the first time in his career and became the first player to defend the Turkish Airlines Open. Started the day three shots back of the overnight leader and carded a final-round 3-under 68 to finish in a tie with Li at 17-under.
Progress! My handicap has come down from 11 (11.0) to 9 (9.2) in August 2017 across a run of three competition rounds out of four. Back in December 20... 16 I used the fault fixer to help improve ball-striking of my irons. MeAndMyGolf provided me with some videos to help with lag. And in August this started to feed through. MeAndMyGolf works for me better than one-on-one tuition with a teaching pro. I think this is because with the latter my swing is like a house of cards; all parts of the swing become up for grabs and I end up with no swing for at least a year. With MeAndMyGolf, I keep my swing private and only I know how to piece it all together; I can fix one thing at a time and integrate the change into my whole swing. So, on to the next fault to fix for 2018... Read More
BMW Championship: Moved into contention at the BMW Championship after a third-round 66. Played in the penultimate group in the final round and posted a 6-under 65 to finish T2 with Rickie Fowler, five strokes behind winner Marc Leishman. Played 53 holes without a bogey before the par-3 17th hole in the final round, just his third bogey of the week.
Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard: Finished T9 for his fourth top-10 finish in 11 starts at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. Opened with under-par scores of 68-66-71 and entered the final round trailing 54-hole leader Jason Day by four strokes before a 1-over 73 left him T9 and seven behind Day. It marked his fifth finish of T17 or better in his first six starts of the season.
