John Rahm sends a 66 footer home to win the BMW Championship…..

Well if there is ever a way to win a golf tournament, this has to be it right? Rahm managed to hole a 66 footer with his Taylor Made Spider X to clinch the BMW Championship on Sunday.

This really was a tale of the putters. Dustin Johnson, who Rahm beat, managed to take it to a playoff initially after holing a 50 footer himself.

So what putters do they use?

Both Rahm & DJ use a Taylor Made Spider X. A stable putter on tour for the last 10 years with the Spider. The spider helped make Jason Day the best putter in the world in 2018 & the X model is now consistently the #1 putter model at PGA tour events.

So do you want to hole more long putts? Great the Spider X has a high resistance to twisting at impact, thus making it more forgiving––something that’s especially handy on longer putts.

Usually priced at £329 – you can win it on our site for as little as £5. Enter here.

Rahm who only a few weeks ago managed to become the first Spaniard to be world number one since is now hot on the heels of DJ for that number 1 spot again.

These two will both be major contenders again come the 20th September, mark my word/(ball before i hole it.)

Dustin Johnson returns to the number one spot.

Dustin Johnson is Golf’s world number one again. He reclaimed top spot in the rankings with a dominant 11-shot victory at the Northern Trust tournament in Boston on Sunday. Johnson posted a score of 30-under to finish 11 shots clear of fellow American, Harris English. 

It was his 22nd PGA Tour victory. This came quickly on the heels of his tied for second placing at last month’s PGA Championship. He has now secured at least one PGA title in each of his 13 seasons on the tour. 

The 2016 U.S. Open champion’s raw, natural talent was evident as he recorded rounds of 67, 60 and 64 over the first three days. Despite a temporary storm delay on the final days play, Johnson made six birdies and one eagle to complete a final-round eight-under 63 in near-darkness. Johnson is now the fifth different player this year to occupy the number one spot in the world rankings.

Johnson’s incredible 30-under score was just one shot off the lowest ever recorded over four rounds in PGA Tour history. That record is still held by Ernie Els, who set it at Kapalua in 2003 matched by JT, who equalled the feat at the Sony Open in 2017.

Johnson’s exceptional performance was once again aided by his TaylorMade equipment. This included the SIM Driver, SIM Max Fairway, SIM Max Rescue, P730 Irons, MySpider Tour putter, Milled Grind 2 Wedge Chrome, TP5x Golf Balls and Tour Staff Bag.   

We have the following competitions to win some kit used by DJ.

FREE DRIVER COMPETITION – Win the SIM Driver.

SPIDER X PUTTER COMPETITION – Win the Spider X Putter for only £5.

THE WEDGE COMPETITION – Win set of TM Milled Grind wedge set for only £5.

Scottie Scheffler shoots a mouth watering, show stopping 59 to join the elite club.

The Northern Trust in Boston this weekend produced some super low rounds, Dustin Johnson was 11 under through 11, however only managed 7 pars coming in to produce an eye catching 60. Meanwhile it was Scottie Scheffler who became only the 12th player in PGA tour history to shoot 59.

Scheffler went out in 30 shots and then produced five birdies from the 10th to the 16th. As a result, this set up a tense 18th hole leaving him needing to birdie the par-five to hit 59.

USPGA Championship – 2020 Preview.

The world of Golf can finally look forward to its first Major since Shane Lowry won the Open Championship at Portrush, back in July 2019. The USPGA Championship is taking place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, and although there will be no fans in attendance, millions will be tuning in around the globe to watch the action across the four days of the tournament & we for one are buzzing for it.

There have been a few competitions since Golf was allowed to return following the general lockdown of sports, but nothing quite beats the buzz that surrounds a Major. (Love a Buzz)

At the head of the betting market to win in California is Brooks Koepka and current World Number 1, Justin Thomas. 

Koepka, the current World Number 6, will be attempting to win a third successive USPGA Championship having won at Bellerive Country Club in 2018, and Bethpage Black Course in 2019. He looked set to win the recent St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind, but was chased down by Thomas, who once again showed he knows how to win better than anyone at the moment, leaving Koepka having to settle for a tie for second with Daniel Berger and Tom Lewis. 

Justin Thomas, whose win in Memphis saw him become World Number 1, goes for a second USPGA crown, having landed the title in 2017 at the Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina. That means these two excellent players have shared the last three wins of the tournament, so it should be little surprise they head the betting market. Could this be the final pairing come Sunday? It certainly has us throttling at the mouth thinking about it. Bit weird?

The USPGA Championship is often viewed as one that can see a new Major winner emerge, and Jon Rahm will hope it is him who can tick that box. The Spaniard, who has recently dropped to World Number 2, won the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in July, but was down the field in Memphis when last seen. Maybe the pressure of being World Number 1 at the time affected him and without that pressure, he can go well.

Also towards the head of the market is Rory McIlroy, but he has now gone six years without a Major win and is sure to be feeling the pressure once more. Is he really looking like the golfer post lockdown? I fear lack of fans means lack of motivation for Rory.

Tiger, who has made a winning return to Golf, looks to be a very generous price of 35/1. He goes for an incredible 16th Major and has form at Harding Park. He won at the venue in 2005 and used to play the course as a child. He is one player who can never be written off. 

Another contender who looks interesting at a big price is World Number 17, Tony Finau. The American recently parted with regular caddie, Greg Bodine, who he had partnered with dating back to 2014. His long-term friend and teacher, Boyd Summerhays stepped in for the recent 3M Open, which saw Finau finish just two shots off the lead for a tie in third. We for one LOVE FINAU and his mega 206mph ball speeds.

It is sure to be another fascinating and exhilarating four days of high-quality Golf, so strap in and enjoy the ride.
