World Match Play: Rory McIlroy & Tiger Woods are top seeds

All golf fans couldn`t wait for this year World Golf Match Play draw. We all have our golf drivers ready to be part of this exciting occasion. Who will win this year? That`s a million dollar question! The top 64 players in the world are eligible to play in the tournament, which pits golfers against each other in a series of knockout matches – Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker’s decision to pull out, opened the door for Lowry and Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson, who will play reigning Open champion Ernie Els. Defending champion Mahan opens his campaign against Matteo Manassero of Italy, while other stand-out ties include England’s 2010 champion Ian Poulter playing Scotland’s Steven Gallacher and Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell taking on Ireland’s Padraig Harrington.

World number one Rory McIlroy will play Shane Lowry in the first round of the WGC Match Play Championship in Arizona.

The Northern Irishman, who was beaten by American Hunter Mahan in last year’s final, plays Ireland’s Lowry who gained his place when Phil Mickelson withdrew.

World number two and three-times winner Tiger Woods takes on fellow American Charles Howell III on Wednesday.

 

Donald, who won the title in 2011, is ranked third and heads the Sam Snead quarter of the draw while McIlroy and Woods are the top seeds in the Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan sections.

The fourth bracket is led by number four seed Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa.

Tom Watson – Golf Club World.

 

Tom Watson was today named US golf captain for Ryder Cup 2014. The 63-year-old succeeds Davis Love III following Europe’s record-breaking comeback victory in October and will become the oldest captain in Ryder Cup history.

“I was waiting for about 20 years to get the call,” he told NBC.  “It is a great honour to do it again.” Eight-time major champion Watson was the last US captain to record an away win, with a 1993 victory at the Belfry in England. Can he do it again?

Golf Club World is proud to introduce one of the greatest golf players in the rich golf history.

Thomas Sturges Watson (born September 4, 1949 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour and now plays mostly on the Champions Tour. His father Ray introduced him to the game. His early coach was Stan Thirsk at the Kansas City Country Club. Watson first gained local renown while on his high school team at The Pembroke-Country Day School in Kansas City. Watson won four straight Missouri State Amateur championships, from 1968–1971. He attended Stanford University, playing on the golf and table tennis teams and graduating with a degree in psychology in 1971.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Watson was one of the leading players in the world, winning eight major championships and heading the PGA Tour money list five times. He was the number one player in the world according to McCormack’s World Golf Rankings from 1978 until 1982; in both 1983 and 1984, he was ranked second behind Seve Ballesteros. He also spent 32 weeks in the top 10 of the successor Sony Rankings in their debut in 1986.

Watson is now also notable for defying age: at nearly 60 years of age, and 26 years after his last major championship victory, he led much of the 2009 Open Championship, but eventually lost in a four-hole playoff. With a chance to win the tournament with par on the 72nd hole, he missed an eight-foot putt, before losing the playoff to Stewart Cink.

Watson has been one of the most complete players ever to play golf. He was named PGA Player of the Year 6 times, 1977–1980, 1982 and 1984, and trails only Tiger Woods, who has been named Player of the Year 9 times. He won the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average three straight years: 1977, 1978, and 1979. He played on four Ryder Cup teams: 1977, 1981, 1983, and 1989 and captained the victorious 1993 team. He was voted the Bob Jones Award in 1987, the highest honor given by the United States Golf Association in recognition of distinguished sportsmanship in golf.  He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1988. He was also inducted into the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame. He won 1992 GCSAA Old Tom Morris Award.  Tom Watson is author or co-authored several books, including Tom Watson’s Strategic Golf. His latest, The Timeless Swing, was released by Atria books in March 2011. He has written a golf instruction column in Golf Digest magazine since the mid-1970s. He was ranked as the 10th greatest golfer of all time in the 2000 Golf Digest magazine list and he is, after Sam Snead, only the second Golf Professional Emeritus at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Between his greats we can also count he is the oldest player to hold the lead after 54 holes at a major championship (2009 Open Championship at Turnberry, Scotland) and also he is the oldest player to lead after any completed round at a major championship (2009 Open Championship at Turnberry, Scotland).

The Top 5 Golf Drivers of 2012

Golf Club World`s Top 5 golf drivers chart.

Callaway Razr Fit

Callaway RazrFit

This beautiful and popular driver has attracted great reviews from golfers across the planet or all abilities. This is the first driver that Callaway have made that features adjustable weights and rotating hosel. This means that golfers can change the centre of gravity and the angle of the face heard to suit their own swing and game. Callaway have also shaved 4 grams off the weight of the club face to help slow swingers and improve ball speed for off centre shots. Although these features are not new to golf drivers Callaway have done a fantastic job with this and it justifies its place as top of the list of drivers of 2012.

Nike VR S

Nike VR

The fantastic Nike driver features a variable thickness face has been designed to help with those annoying off centre hits. This club is very forgiving in that sense. The head can be adjusted through 4 degrees with eight angles the club face can be set to, offering a significant amount of variation to suit the individual golfer. The shaft now weighs less than 60 grams so you also see a significant improvement in the pace of your swing.

Cobra Amp

Cobra Amp

The Cobra Amp is the best looking club in my top 5. I am very impressed with the stylish design of this golf driver. Having said this the Cobra is here on merit not appearance. The driver has three setting that can be applied to the angle of the face. The great part of this driver is how the shaft length, swing weight and face curvature change in relation to the loft. This means that helps you with the aspect of your game that needs help. If you are a faster swinger it will improve your control and if you swing slow it will improve pace.

PING G20

Ping G20

The PING G20 is designed for a low centre of gravity. This is achieved using a low density titanium to save weight which has been repositioned within the club. The shaft has a high balance point and is light weight, putting seven grams extra into the club head to ensure more power from the same strength swing.

Cleveland Classic

Cleveland Classic

This club has an attractive vintage design which makes it stands out. In addition to the style this driver boasts some great features to help golfers with slower swings. The Cleveland Classic is one of the most light weight clubs on the scene at the moment is between 30 to 50 grams lighter than most of its competitors. All of this range uses a Miyazaki shaft which weighs less than 55 grams and a rubber grip weighing less than 25 grams. Cleveland have built on their previous light weight designs and seem excel in this arena, light weight drivers.

Over the years the technological improvement of golf clubs in general has been rapid and extensive. Drivers in particular have come on leaps and bounds in the last decade. Most premium drivers are heavily engineered and are great at helping you to get great flight of the T.

A lot of this engineering has come from the design of the head. Tiger Woods was quoted in 2011 saying he looked for a driver that could help him hit further and straighter and that he felt Nike Golf had really achieved this in their 2011 and 2012 range by reducing unwanted spin off the club face. If technology has helped Tiger I am sure the rest of us will have seen massive improvements.

So what has and what will 2013 bring in terms of new drivers?

In an interesting review I watched recently with Gary Seal, a scratch golfer, I noticed he commented on how much improvement he had observed in the shafts of clubs. Like me he feels that a lot of the major advances in club heads had been found and implemented and that significant advances in this area were unlikely, Gary feels like the real improvements made in 2012 have come by introducing premium shafts.

Some of this change has been in the appearance of the shaft and handles but this is mainly aesthetic, I would like to know what improvements have been made that will help my game. I am sure golfers like Ian Poulter will have great fun with a variety of coloured shafts but this won’t help me on cold Tuesday morning at my local club.

The reduction in the weight of the shafts is definitely a big improvement. Light weight shafts on golf clubs is an advantage to all golfers but does offers us older golfers an added advantage because although over the years I have improved my game dramatically in lots of areas I can feel that the speed of my swing has slowed down and although I spend less time in the rough than in my younger days I would like to combine this control with more pace and distance. I have noticed that the great new clubs of 2012 have seen dramatic improvement in this area.

There also seems to be more drivers with longer shaft lengths being promoted and sold. Having tried some longer shafts I have noticed that personally this does have a dramatic improvement on the speed of my swing but I do seem to be losing some of the control, so I won’t be rushing out to get a 46 length. This is however all down to the individual golfer and I am confident that serious golfers will be getting custom fit for their clubs and in particular drivers more often. This is a way that would help most golfers of all standards to see a measurable improvement in their game and with the invention of applications such as PING-Golf this is going to be more and more common place.

In summary I think that one of the biggest changes we will see in golf equipment in 2013 is going to come as a result of “custom” fitting becoming a cheaper and more readily available, this will help people to find clubs that suit them and in turn improve their game.

Beginners Golf Sets and clubs

Golf is one of the popular sports on the planet and is enjoyed people of all ages. Golf is great fun to play, good exercise and a very social sport. To many golf becomes a lifestyle with as much time each week being spent on the 19th hole as the rest of the course.

Many people would assume that golf is an expensive sport to start. I have seen many guys spend a lot of money on clubs and equipment as a beginner only to decide the sport is not for them or that the expensive clubs do not suit their style of play as they become better players. I think golf is a fantastic sport and would encourage everyone to give it go, but it does require patience! Even the most seasoned of golfers get a bit frustrated every now and again.

I am writing this to try and encourage beginner golfers to not be put off by the illusion of it being expensive or waste money on equipment that will be a little value to them.

The first thing to say is that you don’t need to start off with a complete set. You can get a great feel for the sport and start to develop as a beginner golfer with just a half set. This gives you the opportunity to see what you need moving forward and as you add to your set you will have a better idea of what clubs will add most to your game and ultimately your enjoyment of the sport. In a half set you will want as a minimum a putter (a mallet putter is best), a utility club, a couple of woods, a 7 iron or similar and a pitching wedge.

Some people recommend getting second clubs to save on the cost but I am not sure this is good idea for everyone. Golf clubs vary immensely as do styles of play so as a beginner you could end up buying a set of clubs that a designed for a more accomplished golfer. This would make the game harder to learn but also could end up being a waste of money, even if they seem cheap at the outset.

Beginner golf sets are the best option in terms of usability and cost and will include golf clubs with features designed for people starting out, not Tiger Woods.

A suitable driver and fairway Iron for beginners

When choosing a club for distance such as beginner’s drivers and fairway irons the most important feature is forgiveness. You want to choose clubs with as big a head size as is legally permissible. You are looking for the maximum sweet spot so that off centre hits are limited and you are given as much help as possible to keep your shot straight and long. Beginners will want some flexibility in the shaft, so a regular graphite shaft will be a great choice for your first set of clubs.

A suitable putter for beginners 

Drivers

When looking for a suitable putter you should try to get a mallet putter with alignment aids built in. This helps greatly with your putting and building confidence in the early days. A good beginners club for putting will have a nice balance and offer good distance control. It can be frustrating in the early days to over shoot a nicely lined up shot by a mile and end up further than you started.

A suitable utility club for beginners 

Firstly a utility club, also known as a hybrid, is a club which aims to be easy to hit by combining the features of a fairway wood and a long iron. Most beginners will use this club a lot and it worth making sure you have designed specifically for beginners. These clubs should provide the distance you would expect from a wood with higher loft and elevation. This gives you distance, height and a soft landing. Many accomplished golfers and beginners alike prefer a good utility club to 3 or 4 irons. This is a great strategy for beginners. Many utility clubs offer features such as rails on the bottom or rounded souls which help in various lies, but for your first utility club I would recommend a reasonably priced all round club that you will get a lot of use out of and become comfortable with.

Suitable Irons for beginners 

Beginner golfers would benefit massively from cavity backed irons which place the weight low and deep in the club face which helps to create a bigger sweet spot for a more forgiving club. The cavity back also helps to reduce the centre of gravity making it easier to get the ball in the air. More advanced golfers often opt for blade headed irons which do not offer this level of forgiveness but are not as suitable for beginner golfers.
