9 Moments that Changed the Game Forever

| by

There’s no better illustration of Gene Sarazen’s competitive ingenuity than the club design he happened upon in the mid-1930s. The design characteristics were simple – add loft to a pitching wedge, apply a band of lead tape to the leading edge and, to complete the alchemy, reshape the sole a little – but their cumulative effect was extraordinary. Suddenly, bunkers and long grass were no longer quite as imposing. Purists may lament the loss of the game’s early simplicity, but the modern, flat-faced sand wedge reshaped the way golfers both thought about and played the game. Yes, it made pitching and chipping “easier,” but architects responded in kind by making courses more demanding and green designs more elaborate. For better or worse, it created a science where once there had only been superstition.

Ted Talks: Playing By the King’s Rules

| by

In April, the world of golf focuses on The Masters and the folks at Augusta National Golf Club, but, in March, it’s about the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Golf Club. This week’s PGA Tour event in Orlando is really all about the King and golf’s annual trek to his doorstep. It’s a moment in time each year when we get a chance to pay Palmer the attention that he so justly deserves. On Tuesday, Palmer delivered his annual State of the Game address from Bay Hill. It was no surprise he spent time talking about the controversial anchoring issue that is threatening the overall stability of the game. Palmer has supported the USGA in its proposed ban of the anchored stroke. At the same time, he has appealed to golf’s major bodies — the USGA, the R&A, PGA Tour and the PGA of America — to come to a consensus on the issue that will avoid two sets of rules, or bifurcation.

Maginnes on Tap: Price is Right

| by

Critics often overlook the fact that part of the reason that the Presidents Cup is a better team competition for the Americans than the Ryder Cup is because you can’t hide any struggling player. All players on both squads play both of the first two sessions. Typically in the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup, the Americans have the better team on paper or according to the World Ranking. Martin Kaymer was struggling with control last year heading into the matches. Consequently the former No. 1 player in the world only played one of the first four sessions. Granted he won the critical match against Steve Stricker in the Sunday Singles but that was only the second time that he had teed it up that week. It could be argued that the format of the Presidents Cup is a truer test of team competition.
