Discover Golf : August 2016
From major winners to Olympic medalists, the past month has delivered memorable golfing firsts. Jimmy Walker held off Jason Day to win his maiden major at the PGA Championship. On the same day across the ditch at the Women’s British Open, Ariya Jutanugarn became the only golfer from Thailand to win a major title. More recently in Rio, Justin Rose and Inbee Park were decorated with golf’s first Olympic gold medals in 112 years. And when it comes to celebrating firsts, we couldn’t forget Jim Furyk’s sub-60 round at the Travelers Championship. The 46-year-old posted a 58 to record the lowest ever round in PGA Tour history. Speaking of winners, Darius Oliver is a leader in his field. The acclaimed golf writer has reviewed more than 1,500 courses in nearly 50 countries. The international golf course commentator has just released his latest book, Planet Golf Modern Masterpieces. We feature his insightful review of The Dunes at Shenzhou Peninsula, China. The images are stunning. And we feature new gear from Ping, Srixon and Target Caddie. Here’s to discovering golf and seeing the world.
