Your December issue of Golf Monthly is on sale now and we’ve already started to get some great opinion and letters from you in respect of our 2010 Top 100 Courses Rankings. There’s a fantastic prize on offer for the best review but, in truth, you should need no incentive to buy your copy of the latest Golf Monthly, the content is second to none.

GM columnist Graeme McDowell is on hand with some exclusive tips. My colleague Paul O’Hagan tells me that on shortly after stepping off the plane and arriving at Breadsall Priory, our Ryder Cup hero stiffed his 4-iron to six foot. It was the start of a fantastic photoshoot that you can see more of in the issue. 

Equipment-wise and we take a closer look at the new Titleist 910 D2 and D2 drivers. You can also watch the GM Test Team in the video review here. There is more on the Callaway Diablo Octane Black driver and our Gear Focus is a waterproofs special.

We make no secret of the fact that December’s issue is a our Top 100 Courses edition because we know that serious golfers love a serious debate on their favourite tracks. But we also have all the usual fantastic instruction and equipment news, plus I was fortunate to spend some time with Tom Watson recently and December marks the start of this excellent two-part special on the eight-time Major winner.

There is loads more in this month’s issue, including two new competitions.

We hope you enjoy it and, as always, we look forward to hearing from you.
