SEE IT Hero World Chal­lenge

If you en­joyed the first Hero World Chal­lenge at Ed­in­burgh Cas­tle and can’t make the British Mas­ters, head to South Dock, Ca­nary Wharf af­ter work for a spot of night golf. Start­ing at 5pm on Oc­to­ber 9, Rose and a bunch of Eu­ro­pean Tour stars will hit from a float­ing tee into a float­ing green as part of a one­hole shootout. Ad­mis­sion is free. www.british­mas­ters­golf.com

BUY IT Call­away Chrome Soft Golf Balls

Show your sup­port for Team Eu­rope (or USA) by get­ting your hands on Call­away’s Ry­der Cup -themed golf balls. Avail­able in white, blue and yel­low or a stars & stripes de­sign, the limit­ededi­tion balls com­bine Call­away’s Tru­vis pat­tern and Graphene Dual Soft­fast Core tech­nol­ogy. Call­away claims that the for­mer im­proves vis­i­bil­ity and the lat­ter pro­duces a fast and soft-feel­ing ball that pro­motes high-launch and low spin off the tee, and in­cred­i­ble stop­ping power around the green. In other words, they give you ev­ery­thing you want (and more) for £37.99 a dozen.

SEE IT World Golf Cham­pi­onships-cham­pi­ons

The PGA Tour re­turns af­ter a two-week break (ridicu­lous, we know), with the 2018/19 sea­son kick­ing off at the Safe­way Open just four days af­ter the Ry­der Cup fin­ishes. Bren­dan Steele will be vy­ing for a hat-trick of wins in a row, but if that doesn’t whet your ap­petite, wait un­til the last week of Oc­to­ber when Shang­hai wel­comes the world’s top 50 for the Wgc-cham­pi­ons. It’s the big­gest event be­tween now and the end of the year so it’s a good ex­cuse to in­voke a no-touch pol­icy on the re­mote con­trol. From Oc­to­ber 25-28, live on Sky Sports.

Wal­ton Heath has been a US Open qual­i­fy­ing venue since 2005 and staged the 1981 Ry­der Cup.
