Greetings from Christopher Burnett

Is golf too difficult?

The Redwoods Golf Course, British Columbia, might not mean much to you. Yet it's one of a select band of 100 clubs worldwide… clubs that are trialling golf holes that are 15 inches in diameter.

Since 1893 the world has accepted a 4.25in hole - apparently based on the fact golf's first hole cutter happened to make holes that size. However, according to stats some 5 million people have left the game in the last decade. Some put that down to the game being too hard. Big holes, it is hoped, will arrest the decline.

But will they? It's hard to marry the argument with the fact the 4.25in hole, though maddeningly small, has been big enough to lure some 60 million people into the game. Is the severity of golf's challenge its chief turn-off? Or is it perhaps its biggest draw? We know our views; we'd be fascinated to hear yours. Click here to let us know.

Use the 'tee drill' to groove a powerful strike

Last week we looked at how brands are creating irons that offer more distance than ever before. With a 9-iron in your hands, as opposed to a 7-iron, we're talking more looks at birdies - so long as your ball-striking is sound. So, here's a drill to help you deliver cleaner, more powerful strikes...

We've all been there... it's raining one minute, sunny the next, raining again, sunny two minutes later. This is where having a good selection of layers comes in handy. This is where golf-dedicated brands really deliver - and what's more, those layers come with complete freedom of movement.
