ONE of the most common questions Graeme Storm has faced since winning the SA Open is who was on his bag as he walked the fairways at the Glendower Golf Club on Sunday – and that unfamiliar face is now set for a decent windfall.

Despite overly familiar chunky visuals (Crossy Road has a lot to answer for), this fast-paced, breezy game is a lot of fun, with you dragging left and right to avoid blundering into rocks, and lifting your finger to soar into the air, aiming to catch another rampaging beast. Much like previous entries in the series, Super Stickman Golf 3 finds a tiny golfer dumped in fantastical surroundings. So rather than thwacking a ball about carefully tended fairways and greens, there are castles full of teleporters and a moon base bereft of gravity. The Ryder Cup, this is not. New to the series is a spin mechanic, for flipping impossible shots off of ceilings and nudging fluffed efforts holewards on the greens. You also get turn-by-turn battles against Game Centre chums and a frenetic multiplayer race mode. The spendthrift release is limited, though, restricting how many two-player battles you have on the go, locking away downloadable courses beyond the 20 initially built-in, and peppering the game with ads.

Jordan Spieth closed the 2017 Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, with a flourish, but it was likely too late for the 23-year-old to begin the new year in winning fashion. Spieth posted an eight-under 65 in the final round to finish at 16 under par. Despite his impressive play Sunday, he remained five shots behind tournament leader Justin Thomas when he headed for the clubhouse. Through the first three rounds, a small handful of mistakes had an overwhelming impact for Spieth. According to the PGA Tour's official website , he reached 32 of 45 fairways off the tee and 46 of 54 greens in regulation. He had two bogeys in Round 1 and three in Round 3, however, as well as a double bogey and a triple bogey in Round 2. Golf Channel broke down his overall performance: On Sunday, everything clicked for Spieth. He had his only bogey-free round of the Tournament of Champions, and he had the lowest score of the day when he walked off the course.

Deegan's and then fairways one and two provide opportunities to pick up a few seconds. They go in and out of Ringawaddy at pace and then there's the final long, sweeping right-hander into the home straight with the finish line just seconds later. So, it's a very busy lap here at Bishopscourt and a very busy event here at the Sunflower Trophy.

The battery should last between 10 and 12 hours in GPS mode, placing it near the top of the longevity pile. Tracking your game without even lifting a pencil is one reason to wear this watch, but other GPS watches also offer automatic shot detection. A prime offering of the TomTom Golfer 2 is analysis of game data using the MySports app. This app lets you review shot patterns, so you can see if you're missing fairways to the left more than the right, for example, or you can compare the same hole across different rounds of the 40,000 stored courses. Ultimately it should make tracking your game easier when out on the course, and enable you to keep working on your game when you're back at the clubhouse. While the Garmin Vivoactive does golf it's so much more than just a golf watch. As the name suggests this is an activity tracker for steps, but also for running, cycling and swimming, and it even doubles as a smartwatch with phone notifications.

Do not be bamboozled. Do not fall for the okey doke. In his 70 years on earth the Donald has never shown any regard for working folks. I don't think he knows working people, except for the folkes who clean up in his hotels, and the folks who mow the fairways on his golf course. I would like to introduce to you, the next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton.

Armed with a lasso, you foolishly venture into a stampede and leap from animal to animal, attempting to win their hearts by virtue of not being flung to the ground. You then whisk beaten animals away to a zoo in a massive sky-based craft - the kind of place where you imagine the Avengers might hang out if they gave up crime-fighting and decided to start jailing animals rather than villains.
