  • GOLF NEEDS TO ‘REBAKE THE CAKE’ SAYS HSBC SPONSORSHIP BOSS - Golf News | Ski Magazine
    are in charge of the game need to be brave They need to take some risks Alluding to the success that domestic and international cricket has enjoyed in adopting new formats Morgan added No one would have said 25 years ago that Twenty20 cricket would be the success it is and it has grown It doesn t mean that through Test cricket those who are the purists don t still get their diet The Ashes is still vital to the game of cricket but Twenty20 has embraced a whole younger generation to play broadly the same game Although he feels that 72 hole stroke play tournaments should still provide the backbone of the professional game Morgan believes there are enough weeks in the calendar to provide tournaments with new faster formats including foursomes alternate shot format matches and events that include both the top men and women He would also like to see similar technologies to those used in cricket s Big Bash to allow for players to be interviewed mid round It would be informative and instructional and would bring more people into the game he said I think time and format are the sort of things that can be looked at relatively easily that could preserve all of the greatness of the game but make it a bit more rapid for people s consumption He added I believe golf has an opportunity to make itself more attractive and if they do more sponsors will come in more television will follow more spectators will follow and the virtuous circle will grow But if in 10 years time people are not engaging in the sport not playing it or watching it and it s not relevant to the people we want to do business with it follows that it won

  • ALLISS ATTACKS BBC OVER LIKELY LOSS OF OPEN TV COVERAGE - Golf News | Ski Magazine
    A that it cared I definitely think going back there were people who fought harder to keep tournaments on the BBC At one point we covered 18 events While rounding on the BBC s lack of commitment to covering golf the 83 year old broadcaster questioned whether the R A had the best interests of golf in mind by selling The Open to the highest bidder I m not sure the R A balance the books in the best way he said They re very generous to golf clubs who have parts of their course eroded by the sea and do great deeds around the world but think about the audiences the BBC get for the Masters over Sky It s always five times as much Shouldn t the R A take those figures into account when participation levels in the game are falling The veteran commentator was however full of admiration for the way Sky has covered golf You can t deny that Sky do a fantastic job You might be annoyed at the adverts but they go to faraway places and cover these events even though there might be only eight people watching on Thursday Their commitment to show everything is extraordinary Alliss who became the BBC s lead commentator in 1978 said he was happy that he was coming to the end of his career rather than just starting out I m just glad I am 83 not 35 and reliant on working for the BBC s sports department because I think I would be looking for another trade Stay up to date Share this story tweet Read Online Looking for back issues Subscribe FREE to the UK s most read Golf Newspaper latest golf news best travel deals latest competitions Join us now Featured News Interviews

  • McIlroy admits to writing goals on a boarding card - Golf News | Ski Magazine
    Every year I fly into Dubai to do a bit of preparation before the tournament in Abu Dhabi and I write my goals down in the back of my boarding pass and I put it in my wallet and I memorise them I don t really want to share them with anyone else They are just my little goals and I ll try and achieve those At the end of the year I ll take that boarding pass out at and see how well I ve done Lofty goals Rory McIlroy writes his goals for the season on his boarding pass while flying to Dubai at the beginning of each season Asked whether he had succeeded in ticking off all the goals during last season s double major winning season he joked I actually didn t achieve everything that I wanted to last year I wanted to have six worldwide wins I only had four but it was still a good year As a sign of his ride up the world rankings and the size of his bank balance McIlroy has noticed that the numfer of the seat on his boarding pass has come down It s funny the numbers have gradually gotten less and less A few years ago in was in the 20s and then 13B 12A and yes this year it was 1A so it s been nice to notice that Maybe one day there will be no number and no boarding pass and that will be the ultimate While not revealing the exact details of this year s goals McIlroy did admit that it contained a major in there somewhere The Masters perhaps to complete the grand slam of majors I m not greedy he replied Any major will do What are your goals for the
