THE BLACK KNIGHT ON THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

Having watched the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in New York, my long-held theory that if you wish to produce your best golf and compete at the highest level you simply have to put in the hard work in the gym and be as fit as you can possibly be. Both Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson have clearly been lifting the weights to get themselves into top physical condition. I’ve been preaching this practice throughout my career and now in my 80s, I’m still working on my fitness on a daily basis. I’ve got to say that Brooks’ first 36 holes in the PGA was among the finest opening two rounds I’ve ever seen. To shoot 63-65 and take an […]

EL CORTÉS: A GLOBAL GOLF DESTINATION

For centuries, the Sea of Cortez has served as a rich canvas for explorers, adventurers, fishermen and artists. Separating Baja California from Mexico’s mainland, the sea (also known as the Gulf of California) runs 700 miles from the tip of Baja California Sur to nearly touching the U.S. border. There are stunning golf destinations aplenty in the region, and the crown jewel of the Baja is a course by Gary Player Design. The only Gary Player signature design in Mexico, El Cortés Golf Club is laid out as an extension of the region’s natural topography and the city’s relaxed attitude. The reopening of El Cortés (formally CostaBaja) has only enhanced the modern Baja golf boom. The Player Design team managed to tame […]

TIGER’S WIN ONE FOR THE AGES

I have to say that Tiger Woods’ victory at The Masters was the greatest comeback in golf I have seen in my lifetime. It compares with Ben Hogan’s. For a player who had gone through back and knee operations, and considerable personal turmoil, it was a remarkable performance. It was an emotional moment for Tiger, and his mother and family, when he put on the Green Jacket for the fifth time and never has a Masters victory been so well deserved. I never thought he would win another Major but now I would not be at all surprised to see him add another Grand Slam event to his collection of 15 Majors. Maybe he won’t equal Jack Nicklaus’s record of […]
