6 Golf Superstars Whose Game You Should Study

By    |   Friday, 13 April 2018 09:07 AM

One of the best ways to improve your golf game is to observe and study the superstars. Young or old, these pros can give you the most important tips on the course, and all you have to do is watch them.

They’ll also offer essential advice on their long or short game following rounds and tournaments or online instruction through videos and photos on golf sites. They’ve gone through their ups and downs, bouncing back with unexpected victories.

Golfers can’t go wrong with these six golf superstars whose game you should study:

1. Patrick Reed — He may have seemed a little brash during his first few years on the pro golf circuit, but when he won his first major tournament, it was the big one — putting on the fabled green jacket at the 2018 Masters championship in Augusta, Georgia. Despite his skill, Reed spent long hours practicing every day during the week before the tournament, according to PGA Tour. He focuses on targeting shots with different wind direction and hole location.

2. Rory McIlroy — Known for his pure swing, McIlroy came close to clinching the career grand slam going into the final round of the 2018 Masters but fell behind. Still, he’s been in the top 10 for the past four years, CBS Sports reported. There will be so much more in the future from this pro golfer, who is also known for his attention to fitness.

3. Jordan Spieth — Catapulting to golf superstar status in 2015 by becoming the second youngest golfer at age 21 to win the Masters (behind Tiger Woods), Spieth was also the youngest to win the U.S. Open that same year since legendary Bobby Jones in 1923. He is known for his incredible abilities on and around the green.

4. Phil Mickelson — If anything, he’s known for his endurance. It took him 16 years to win a major on the pro golf tour, but he continues to turn in winning performances into his 40s, notes PGA.com. Mickelson stunned the golf world with Masters titles in 2004, 2006, and 2010. In 2018, he beat 24-year-old Justin Thomas in a playoff for the WGC-Mexico Championship.

5. Tiger Woods — Of course, Tiger is still exciting to watch to study his game. After all, he changed the game when he became pro at age 20 and a year later became the youngest player to win the Masters in 1997, winning three more. Plagued by health ailments in recent years, he hasn’t won a major since 2008, but that doesn’t mean he won’t do it again.

6. Jack Nicklaus — The Golden Bear is still considered by many as the greatest golfer of all time. He holds the record of wearing the green jacket at the Masters six times and is the oldest Masters champ. With his record 18 major wins, he still is on hand for guidance and advice, even basking in the glory of seeing his grandson fire a hole-in-one recently.
