The honest truth about dishonesty

"If golfers want to abuse the system, there is always a way of doing so. It's just the fact that they can get away with it and are not punished when 'rumbled' that is so annoying"

It's fair to say that Sunday at Seminole was largely uninspiring but one thing it did spark was a gender debate with Mel Reid. Did golf miss an opportunity to showcase ALL the game has to offer?

First round in two months a welcome break from pandemic restrictions, writes Liam Kelly

Stephanie Meadow got off to a solid if unspectacular start after she opened with a one-over-par 73 at the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women’s Health Classic.

The Jordanstown professional heads into round two tonight in a tie for 29th, five shots behind first round leader, Bangkok rookie, Pajaree Anannarukarn.


Meadow returned just the one bogey and two dropped shots as she continues her journey towards regaining her LPGA Tour status on the Symetra Tour.


She already has one win under her belt at the IOA Championship presented by Morongo Casino Resort & Spa this season and currently sits in second place on the money list, with the top-10 earning their main tour status.


For 18-year-old leader, Anannarukarn, the rookie only surrendered one bogey while carding five birdies in her four-under-par return at The Links at Stoney Point Golf Club. 


“I’m really happy with the result, it was a great round,” she said. “I made mistakes in the last tournament and I’m trying to improve what I have to do. I hope to keep playing good, focusing on my game and being patient.” 


In setting the benchmark on day one, the teenager had her short-stick to thank for her fine opening effort.


“I give all the credit to my putting,” she acknowledged. “It was definitely a very tricky course on the greens. I just want to keep being patient on the green, everywhere. My putting was working very well today, so it helped me a lot.”
