This week Fergus plunges new depths of golfing despair. As we get an insight into his murky mind, this blog comes with a warning – readers may find his mental state harrowing. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

For GM blogger and star of stage and screen George Asprey it’s a case of what might have been.

Meanwhile in the confused world of Clive Agran it’s a fond look back at the Open. Clive, aka ‘Silky Swing’ considers who he was rooting for at Carnoustie but finds a coherent solution hard to come by.

For Iain Carter the outlook is, well, sweaty. Our man at the USPGA discovers that Tulsa in August is a million miles away from Carnoustie in July.

Point the camera, press the trigger and hey presto you’ve got a great photo. The Golf Monthly photographers have got it easy. Well, not exactly. For David Cruickshanks shooting the Women’s British Open was a frustrating affair.
