Rehearse your shot When waiting to play, practice one move One thought: Between shots, don't get lost in mechanics. Focus on a single key, like putting the club in the downswing slot. Photo: Dom Furore ByTom Watson with Nick Seitz Photo By Dom Furore February 2009 I like to play fast, but it isn't always possible, as you know. I deal with delays by focusing on one thought. A good example is the 1983 British Open at Royal Birkdale. I had a one-stroke lead going to the last hole, a long par 4. I hit a good drive, got to my ball and saw that the group in front hadn't reached the green. It was going to be a while -- a problem when you're under pressure and want to get a shot over with. I had a 2-iron in my hands for the 213-yard approach, and my one thought was to put the club in the correct position on the downswing. Put it in the slot, as teachers call it. I practiced the feel of that first move down with slow-motion "shadow swings," and practiced it and practiced it. When the green finally cleared, I didn' ...

"New boy" Colin Montgomerie talks about his prospects in the Senior Open at Royal Birkdale.
As he celebrates reaching his half century today (Sunday), Colin Montgomerie has looked ahead to making his debut in The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex, from July 25-28. The man affectionately known as “Monty” captured 31 European Tour titles and won the Harry Vardon Trophy a record eight times, but after turning 50 his thoughts have now turned to writing a new chapter as a member of the Senior Tour, starting with next month’s showpiece event at Royal Birkdale, in Southport, England. Montgomerie, whose name has become synonymous with The Ryder Cup after enjoying tremendous success as both player and captain, will be reunited with many familiar faces when he joins the over-50 ranks, including his great European comrades Bernhard Langer, Sam Torrance and Ian Woosnam; defending champion Fred Couples and 2014 US Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson. The 2010 victorious Ryder Cup captain said: “Freddie Couples won at Turnberry last year and now we return to another venue on The Open rota in Royal ...
Tony Jacklin on Monday praised Justin Rose's courage after seeing him become the first English winner of one of golf's major championships in 17 years with his victory at the US Open. Rose's two-shot victory at the Merion course in Pennsylvania was the first in a major since Nick Faldo took the 1996 US Masters title. The South Africa-born Rose's success also ended a wait of more than four decades for an English US Open champion since Jacklin's own triumph at Hazeltine in Minnesota back in 1970. Rose announced himself to the golf world as a 17-year-old amateur when he finished in a tie for fourth in the 1998 British Open at Royal Birkdale, in northwest England. But the now 32-year-old struggled early on in his professional career, infamously missing 21 consecutive cuts before winning his first event in the paid ranks in 2002. “I was thrilled for him. I know what he's gone through in his professional life,” Jacklin told BBC radio. “I was obviously around when he had that audacious chip-in at Birkdale ...
