After Hideki Matsuyama’s historic moment at Augusta National, the spotlight falls on the Ocean course at Kiawah Island and this month’s 103rd U.S. PGA Championship. We preview the second major of the year and feature a man whose short game alone will make him a contender in South Carolina.
Fortunately, you can learn the secrets of Patrick Reed’s wedge wizardry as part of a deep dive cover feature where you can make your own call on whether the media or the complex man himself are responsible for Captain America’s mixed public image.
We talk to the UAE’s No.1 player Ahmad Skaik on his historic Dubai Golf Trophy captaincy, join Matthew Brookes at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club to learn the science behind escaping deep rough and head to Arabian Ranches Golf Club where Ryan Smith shows you how to tame the Dubai course’s No.1 stroke hole.
New golfers will enjoy our ‘Welcome to Golf’ feature where seasoned players share tips they wish someone had given them when they started out while players old and new will benefit from the latest instalment of our annual Hot List, this month focused on irons.
