In the Bag 2013 with Adam Scott

Arguably he’s the most naturally gifted Australian golfer of his generation, he’s won 19 times as a professional but despite several strong showings at Major championships over the years, that elusive first Major title still eluded him going into the 2013 Masters, so what does 2013 and beyond hold for the mercurial talents of Australian golfer Adam Scott?

Masters 2013: Will Tiger be the Master or will Rory find his roar?

The first Major of the golf year takes place starting tomorrow as the world’s finest players take to the famous fairways of Augusta to compete in the 2013 Masters. This year has so far been the year of the Tiger, as the erstwhile Mr Woods has risen back to the top of the golfing rankings on the back of several outstanding performances.

But will this week see another of golf’s finest roar back to form, or will Tiger Woods once again be the Master of Augusta?

Does The Masters foster a culture of inequality in golf?

It is Masters week at Augusta National and once again, the eyes of the golfing world are centred on this quiet corner of Georgia to celebrate all that is magnificent about the wonderful game of golf.

But should they be?

Golf is a game steeped in tradition and history and Augusta is no different. This exclusive club has always been a law unto itself. Much was made of the fact that Bill Gates, Microsoft founder and formerly World’s Richest Man, wanted to be a member but the 300-strong membership at the club would not vote him on.

With all the drama over Tiger Woods regaining top spot in the World Rankings and Rory McIlroy’s loss of form, it has perhaps been overlooked that another player seeking success in the Majors, and many other tournaments in 2013, is a former World Number 1 seeking to usurp the ‘big two’ and re-establish himself at the top of the game.

That man is Luke Donald, so let’s take a look at the career so far and what is in his bag for the 2013 season.

The Golf Coast – England’s best-kept golfing secret

When people visit the UK for a golf trip, they often head to the majestic old links courses in Scotland such as the Old Course (if you can get on it), Carnoustie, Muirfield, Troon and Gleneagles. The names trip off the tongue as easily as the greatest names in golf.

Yet there is another part of the UK that is often overlooked when it comes to golf, which is a pity as it not only offers golfers three Open Championship rota courses with Royal patronage, but a host of other top quality golf courses that are a true test of all golfing ability and to suit all budgets.

Welcome to the UK’s Golf Coast! Home to three of the top 20 and seven of the top 36 courses in the whole of the UK and Ireland!
