Check out some of the best conversations between 5-time PGA TOUR winner Collin Morikawa and his caddie J.J. Jakovac through The Open Championship 2021. Listen in as they thoroughly discuss strategy and club selection prior to golf shots during tournament play.
Since the Amundi Evian Championship was established as a major on the LPGA Tour schedule in 2013, it is the one major championship that has eluded Inbee Park. That is something the 20-time LPGA winner hopes to change this week at Evian Resort Golf Club.
She does have a good history in Evian-les-Bains, France to build from. Park won this tournament in 2012 when it was known as the Evian Masters.
“That is definitely one thing I’ve always wanted to do. It became a major and they renovated the course, so we’re playing a little bit different of a course. Obviously, becoming a major, I want to win another Evian Championship,” said Park, a seven-time major champion. “I think it is a really good year to do it, as well, going into the Tokyo Olympics and the course is in really, really good shape.
Just this last weekend, we saw several examples of how developing and implementing a specific strategy led to success for the men at Royal St. George’s. Most who watch golf just assume the players are so good, they can just hit it where they want. Most of the time they can, but ALL players get nervous and therefore will favor a safer target in their strategy.

Ball striking will play just as important a part at this week’s Amundi Evian Championship as well, but believe it or not the champion on Sunday will be the woman who has the resilience to follow her plan of attack.
In this video, Neil Tappin is joined by rules guru, Jeremy Ellwood. Jezz sets 8 questions and offers multiple choice answers to see how well you know the rules of golf. How many will you get right?!
Everyone wants to hit the ball like a tour pro. This extends from booming drives to precisely struck, soaring iron shots that settle close to the pin.
That said, the irons TOUR pros play are rarely, if ever, the best-suited weapons for average amateurs as they wage war with old man par (as much as they attempt to convince themselves otherwise).
Xander Schauffele and Jon Rahm, for example, play Callaway’s Apex TCB irons. At the “elite player” end of the Apex 21 cavity back iron spectrum, TCB (Tour Cavity Back), irons feature a more compact shape and TOUR pro-preferred look at address as well as a weighting system more conducive to the needs of the best golfers in the world.
