Golf’s new di­rec­tion

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport -

The golf­ing world does not ap­pear overly keen on the di­rec­tion Bryson DeCham­beau is tak­ing the game. Yet sev­eral play­ers in the US Open hit the ball fur­ther than him, and he won by six shots. I am re­minded of the com­ment Bobby Jones made on first see­ing Jack Nick­laus play in 1958: “He plays a game with which I am not fa­mil­iar.” I am no great ad­mirer of DeCham­beau but let us give the man a chance.

Bryson DeCham­beau played awe­some golf to mas­ter a fiendishly dif­fi­cult course. How­ever, he has yet to demon­strate that he can win on links cour­ses such as Carnoustie or Royal St Ge­orge’s. Can he hit a stinger like Tiger, or com­bat 30mph winds like Player, Nick­laus and Palmer? The jury is out.
