cute place

[swiet-spot] • English

Meaning in golf language: the middle of the club surface. In other words: the best place on your fourteen clubs where you have to hit the ball. One must, of course, aim well.

Barbecue and golf

But we start with an ode to barbecue and golf. We admit that there are easier ways to put your burger on the baking sheet, but only a little more original than this way.

Talent

You can bet that it will be exciting at Rosendaelsche this week. Top players from all over the world who can hit a nice ball. It’s a little too early for this talent, but sign her up for the 2040 edition!

The open

At the same time as the Big Green Egg Open, another fine tournament is taking place: The Open. It is also the 150th edition of this oldest major. The Open is played every five years at St Andrews, also known as The Home of Golf. It is getting very busy in Scotland, so a number of locals have chosen to go on holiday …

pure art

We can be sure that the course at St. Andrews will be in perfect condition. Such was also the case last week at The Renaissance Club, where the Scottish Open was held. A bunker in Scotland is not just a bunker, but a kind of sanctuary. We therefore classify this piece of craft as pure art.

Staff

Tens of thousands of spectators are expected for The Open, and they will not only cheer the players on, but also lend a hand every now and then. With many eyes, it’s a little easier to find a ball that threatens to get lost in the tall grass, and sometimes the fans are very helpful when it comes to a ball that seems to be hit a little too far, but yet lands wonderfully. well…

Threat

We’re a little worried about the survival of The Open at St. Andrews. Not because of the threat from the LIV Tour, you know, the rich sheik’s golf toy trying to pull more and more players away from the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, but because of the threat from nature. In other words, global warming. According to Climate Central scientists, there is a chance that St. Andrews will be flooded in 2050. That would obviously be something of a disaster. For those who want to know more about it, read the article on Golf Digest.

As long as it lasts, we enjoy a great layout …

Go Jens!

The question that also haunts us: will we see this man in The Open before the water takes over the golf course? The football clubs have begun to prepare for the new season and more and more often coaches are putting in a moment of relaxation for players on the golf course at training camps. Jens Toornstra from Feyenoord took his chance last week in Austria and actually made a birdie. In football, they call it a push …

Challenge

We have already devised another challenge for Jens. ‘Break 60’, as this pro golfer did during a round with his friends at home.

LIV Tour

Talking about LIV Tour. It is no longer a secret that money is being thrown at that Tour. The golfers are thoroughly pampered and fly in a plane that you do not have to stand in line at Schiphol for … Private jets are the most natural thing in the world in the golf world, but we have never seen a party plane like this before. Even if you do 80 in a round (Pat Perez), you can just participate in the polonaise at about ten kilometers altitude!

NK closest to the stick
