An all new play-better section

Our TG Top 50 coaches are on hand to give you the best advice for the course. Featuring long game, short game, how to improve your touch on the greens and Tour Tips so you can learn from the likes of Paul Casey - there's plenty to get your teeth in to. 

Caddie advice: Strategy on the course

Who better to give you strategy advice than the men who help European Tour Pro's navigate their way around the course. The right hand men of Thomas Pieters, Shane Lowry, Alex Levy, Thorbjorn Olesen, Eddie Pepperell and Chris Wood give you some excellent advice for the season ahead. 

Big Interview: Tyrrell Hatton 

Since the age of six, England's Tyrrell Hatton has only wanted to be a Tour golfer. He'd achieved that goal by the time he was 20, and now he's raking it in as a back-to-back winner in 2017. We chat to him about what motivates him, his PGA tour plans, his strengths and weakness and why he makes no apologies about letting his passionate nature get the better of him on the course sometimes.

TG Columnists: Andrew Cotter & Nick Dougherty 

In this month's issue of TG, Andrew Cotter hands out 'The Cotters' - his year long awards for shot of the year, comeback of the year, and even Justin of the year! Nick Dougherty, on the other hand, focuses on the difficulties Tour players face in terms of managing their schedule to make sure they peak at the right time for the big tournaments. 

My Life in Golf: Wladimir Klitschko

We caught up with the boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko after he made his second appearance at The Dunhill Links in St Andrews this year. He started playing golf as a result of losing a fight against the late Corrie Sanders (who played golf), and now that he's hung up his gloves he's focusing on getting his 18 handicap a lot lower.

"I thought to myself 'how did he manage it, he was so good and his hands were lightning fast.' I wanted to understand and study Corrie better. It's like in chess: to see what they see, sit where they sit."



Gear Test: Cavity Back irons vs Blades

One is for Tour stars, the other’s for the rest of us... but what’s the difference in the real world? With such high-profile sets featuring in the bags of Tour stars in 2018, now felt like the perfect time to put the newest forged blades up against their cavity-back cousins. The idea was to show how different the performance really is, and prove whether blades are only for the best ball strikers in the game. 


Behind the Scenes at TaylorMade

Tomo Bystedt, the man behind TaylorMade's irons, gives us a guided tour of office. Everywhere you look, there's a Tour bag overflowing with TaylorMade clubs. The latest range is within arm's reach of Tomo Bystedt's desk, which on any other day would be scattered with sketches and 3D prints. For confidentiality purposes, these have been hidden among a collection of prototypes and half-finished sets.

As the self-confessed "iron guy" at TaylorMade, Bystedt has been the brains behind some of the firm's best irons – all of which were approved right here in his o ce. We were given an exclusive tour to nd out where he gets his inspiration from and why he's still hoarding clubs from the early 2000s.

Secrets of the Tour Stat Leaders 

Stats play an increasingly important role in the world of a professional golfer. They reveal what players are good at, what they're bad at, how they compare to the eld and – crucially – areas they can improve.

Stats also reveal who's best at what on Tour – distance, hitting greens, hitting fairways, getting up and down, bunkers, putting... In this section, you'll find exclusive advice from some of the men at, or very near, the top of these categories. They'll reveal how they've become so skilled in one particular part of the game, before revealing what you can do to improve your own success rates...
