BUY IT Tay­lor­made’s Rory Ju­nior Golf Sets

If you’re still hunt­ing for your golf-mad child’s big present this Christ­mas, look no fur­ther. Rory Mcil­roy has teamed up with Tay­lor­made to launch his own line of clubs for young­sters. The five and seven-club sets, which hit stores on De­cem­ber 7, are em­bla­zoned with Rory’s name and en­gi­neered with lengths, lofts and shaft flexes for ju­niors. Each set comes with a bag and will be avail­able in two con­fig­u­ra­tions for boys (4+ and 8+) and one for girls (8+). The set for younger kids in­cludes a driver, 5-rescue, 7-iron, sand wedge and put­ter. You also get a 3-wood and 9-iron in the 8+ set, which is priced at £399.

SEE IT Hero World Chal­lenge

Tiger re­turns to the PGA Tour for the first time since clock­ing up his 80th win when he hosts the in­vi­ta­tion-only Hero World Chal­lenge in the Ba­hamas. Rickie Fowler is the de­fend­ing cham­pion and will be part of an 18-strong field fea­tur­ing Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas. From Novem­ber 29-De­cem­ber 2; live on Sky Sports Golf.

BUY IT The 2018 Ry­der Cup Of­fi­cial Film

Re­live Francesco Moli­nari’s record-break­ing per­for­mance and Phil’s way­ward tee shots at Le Golf Na­tional with this cracker of a stock­ing filler. The two-disc set in­cludes ex­clu­sive in­ter­views with the play­ers and cap­tains, plus be­hindthe-scenes footage in­side the Euro­pean team room. Sadly, there’s no record­ing of DJ’S al­leged bust-up with Brooks Koepka, but that’s a moot point when you can watch the birth of Moli­wood and Europe’s white­wash on Fri­day af­ter­noon. RRP £14.99.

SEE IT Eng­land Golf Awards

Show your sup­port for golf’s un­sung he­roes by at­tend­ing the 2019 Eng­land Golf Awards at Royal Lan­caster Lon­don on March 21. Hosted by BBC Break­fast pre­sen­ter Dan Walker, the evening will pay trib­ute to the win­ners and in­clude a black-tie drinks re­cep­tion and three-course din­ner. Tick­ets are £90 per per­son, while the clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions is Novem­ber 30, so be quick.
