Ewan Porter: Ports & Pints

| by

Hello to all my fellow Back9 fans, my name is Ewan Porter and commencing in 2013, I decided to pursue my passion for beer by consuming a different one each day for 365 days. I have been blogging about it on a monthly basis up until this stage but you will now be able to track my ‘week in beer’ more regularly as I write an update each Thursday for golf.swingbyswing.com and I will also be gathering footage of my beer trials that you will be able to view each week on their website too.

Curious About Golf:~Spanish Elbow

| by

You could say that European golf owes Spain quite a lot. On the other hand you could say that both European golf and Spanish golf owe one man rather a lot. That man was, of course, Severiano Ballesteros and it’s always worth pondering what state European golf would be in without him because it wasn’t just the bare bones of his success that were impressive (five majors and reinvigorating the Ryder Cup), but his transformation of the mindset of European golf also, which was little short of immense.

French Major:~How France Does Pro Golf

| by

Bonjour! This year we celebrated 100 years of French golf! To celebrate, let’s talk about professional golf there. Two institutions govern the game in France: the French PGA, who represents the professional players and golf teachers, and the French Golf Federation, whose mission is to grow the game in the country. They share the responsibility to get French people to discover this great sport and helping them to become better players. The French Federation created a beautiful fresque, sharing our rich history with the game in amazing perspective. The picture is stunning, as is the state of the pro game now in France.

Et tu, Rory?~McGinley Emerges European Captain

| by

The interior of the St.Regis Hotel in Abu Dhabi, in a small corner of which two dozen eager golf journalists spent Tuesday evening coralled in a state of mounting agitation, speaks the international language of conference rooms and corporate retreats. It’s quietly, blandly opulent; a riot of beige and brown. The interesting stuff is all on the outside, where the facade, a tiered mass of whitewashed columns, marble and tiled rooves, calls to mind the architecture and scale of imperial Rome. As a venue for boardroom intrigue and political shicanery, the Emirates can boast of few more fitting venues. Such an observation would likely have gained little purchase with the small group of players and officials on hand to convene Tuesday’s meeting of the European Tour’s Tournament Committee, but theirs was a drama tailor-made for high-falutin’ analogy. They’d gathered, after all, to accomplish the messy business of selecting a new Ryder Cup captain, bringing to an end weeks of speculation, off-the-record wrangling and frenzied multimedia canvassing.
