  • Bryson DeChambeau is the monster golf created

    Written by Andrew Cotter on Monday, 6 July 2020

    Golf needs to be about skill, not just strength Tam Arte Quam Marte... I do like to start off with a bit of Latin – it creates an air of intelligence where none might actually exist. A ploy not unknown in UK politics. In fact, I know very little Latin. From my school days I am only able to tell you that Caecilius is sitting in the...
