ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I don’t like the new Major schedule, from the stand point that if you have an injury, or if you’re struggling with one tournament, all of a sudden the other one follows too closely, to get it back. I’m not sure that that’s really a good thing for the game of golf, to have all your tournaments in about three and a half months. And I don’t think it’s good for the other tournaments on the Tour. I know that the all-mighty dollar is important, but I don’t think it’s so important that you really lose out on the tradition of the great tournaments that have been played for years and years and years. I think it will work against Tiger - unless he's really healthy.”

BRAIN TEASER: It’s been more than two years since this player claimed a victory on the PGA TOUR. But it was a major and one of three times he was victorious in 2017. Who is he?

TIGHT KNIT: adidas Golf’s new TOUR360 XT Primeknit shoes feature a waterproof knitted upper. The special yarns that make up the upper of the shoe are tour360xtdesigned to repel water, while still offering breathability and stability where they need it most. The TOUR360 XT Primeknit also incorporates forging technology – the process of heating the upper to provide more stability around the midfoot without adding weight, according to the company. When coupled with the 360 Wrap, it gives players the locked-in feel the company promises.

“We’re always working on creative ways to infuse both comfort and performance into a golf shoe,” said Mason Dension, adidas Golf’s director of footwear. “With the TOUR360 XT Primeknit, it checks all the boxes, giving players an extremely comfortable – and dry – wear throughout their round, while also giving them the support, traction and stability they need as they play. It also offers a unique look to help them stand out on the course.”

MORE SHOE BUSINESS: Peter Millar has launched a golf shoe called the Hyperlight Glide. Available in three colors – navy, platinum and iron – it is a machine washable, and features a lightweight, breathable knitted upper, while perforations in the toe provide additional areas for moisture to escape.

It features a durable rubberized EVA outsole for a cushioning, a foam insole, a moisture-wicking wool/polyester sock liner and a heel pad. A stretch collar and stretch laces allow for easy removal, while an elastic band of material that sits flush with the tongue helps maintain a secure fit at all times, according to the company.  It retails at £120/€145 and is available to purchase now at www.petermillar.co.uk.

REED LOOKING TO CASH IN: "Coming over and getting on this stretch after how I finished on the PGA Tour, I feel confident and solid," he said. "Hopefully I can continue that form and play some good golf to get myself in the right frame of mind and a good position on the Race to Dubai. There’s a lot of little things that go into playing golf that a lot of people may not realize." READ MORE>>>
