Vote In The 2017 Golf Monthly Foremost Awards!
Golf Monthly has again teamed up with Foremost Golf, the UK’s Largest Golf Retail Group, to recognise some of 2017’s stand-out golfing performances.
We’re asking for votes in four categories – Player of the Year, Shot of the Year and Breakthrough Player of the Year – with three lucky readers each winning £100 of Foremost vouchers to redeem online at www.foremostgolf.com
The nominations are as follows…
Player of the Year
Dustin Johnson – Won four PGA Tour titles including two WGCs and maintained his position as world #1
Jordan Spieth – Three PGA Tour wins including The Open Championship, his third major title
Justin Thomas – Five PGA Tour wins including the USPGA Championship
Sergio Garcia – Won his maiden major at the Masters in a thrilling final day battle with Justin Rose
So Yeon Ryu – Reached world #1 and won two LPGA Tour wins including the ANA Inspiration
Shot of the Year
Ian Poulter – Players, shot from trees on 18th to secure card
Poults shanked his second on the 18th and proceeded to hit a wedge shot stiff from the trees for a tap-in par. It secured him second place to Si Woo Kim and also meant that he retained his PGA Tour card.
Jordan Spieth – The Open, 13th hole from range
Facing a nightmare situation, Spieth had to take in excess of 20 minutes to get a ruling and play ‘that shot’ from the Birkdale practice range. It looked like a double-bogey at least would follow. Instead, he blasted a 3 iron around 240 yards to the side of the green and got up-and-down for bogey.
Jordan Spieth – The Open, 14th hole tee shot
On the very next hole, after what must have been an emotional rollercoaster, Spieth nearly aced the par-3 14th at Birkdale to leave himself a tap-in birdie, it was a swing worthy of a Claret Jug.
Lexi Thompson – Solheim Cup singles, holed 3rd for eagle on 11th
Four down after nine holes to Anna Nordqvist, Lexi Thompson turned it on on the back nine. She was three down on the 11th and hit the shot of the week. She played seven holes on the back nine in eight under par to gain the upper hand in the match.
Sergio Garcia – The Masters, approach to 15th
Having just crushed a drive down the par-5 15th, Garcia faced a do-or-die shot from 192-yards. Would he chunk it into the water like Seve did in 1986? Or would he hit it long of the green and face a treacherous up-and-down? No. He went straight at the flag, nearly holing it for albatross and then calmly rolled in a 15ft eagle putt to edge in front of Justin Rose.
Breakthrough Player of the Year
Aaron Rai – The Englishman won three times on the Challenge Tour and played in the US Open at Erin Hills
Georgia Hall – The 21-year-old finished T3rd at the Ricoh Women’s British Open and put in a fine display in her first Solheim Cup
Jordan Smith – Won his first European Tour title at the European Open in his rookie season on Tour
Wesley Bryan – In his first full season on Tour, after winning three times on the Web.com Tour last season, Bryan picked up his first PGA Tour title at the RBC Heritage
