Rose ‘flying blind’ at PGA open

Justin Rose says he is starting the US PGA Championship “semi-blind” having not played a practice round at Bellerive because of a back injury.

The 38-year-old Englishman, ranked third in the world, withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week.

“It’s been a different preparation for me,” he said. “But it’s all been about trying to be ready for Thursday.”

“Going home and getting some, not just physical rest, but mental rest, could be a benefit.”

With a good performance Rose could reach world no1. What do you think?

The Open Championship

The Open Championship has begun at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus Scotland. And, with the weather continuing to remain hot and dry, we look at how the pro’s have spent the week discussing tee trajectory and ball flight and why that may help them even more than ever.

Trajectory

“It is mainly about trajectory. You can get the same numbers with different trajectories. That’s what is going to be important, how hot you want the ball coming into the fairways.” states Tiger Woods in a recent interview. With hot/dry ground the ball is

When you’re in the rough the hole is never far away eh Tommy
June 19, 2018

Tommy
Tommy Fleetwood had a fantastic amateur career winning several top individual events and then representing GB and I in the Walker Cup at the end of 2009.  However, it’s not always been a story of steady successes.  If you’re unfamiliar with who Fleetwood is, you’d have certainly read about about him this past Sunday as he graced the headlines following the sensational final round of 63 in the past weeks U.S. Open.  The conditions were perhaps more brutal than you’d expect on a final round, so, when he tied the

No doubt, if you had, you will have probably seen the most high-profile victim of the ugly combination of punishing rough, testing pin positions and high winds, was non-other than Rory McIlroy who came in at 10-over-par 80.

Is The Open Ready For Tiger
June 6, 2018

Tiger Woods is arguably the most famous name in Golf. And with 14 majors already under his belt, Wood’s return comes at a time as he breaks back into the top 100 and continues to improve.

Woods hasn’t teed up at the open since he missed the cut at St Andrew’s back in 2015, and despite his off-field problems and injuries we believe that sooner or later Woods will give us another glimpse of the man who took Golfing to a whole other level. Here at Fairweather we are looking forward

Bryson Dechambeau and his use of statistics
June 4, 2018

Bryson Dechambeau wins the PGA Tour’s memorial Tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus.

25 Year old Bryson Dechambeau, who began the final round with a one-shot lead, bogeyed the par-4 18th to force a three-man playoff with Kyle Stanley and Byeong Hun An at 15 under. Stanley fell out on the first playoff hole with a bogey, and then DeChambeau birdied the second for victory.
