But as impressive as the golf has been from all of these young stars, even more impressive is their behaviour on the golf course. The three young men chatted away, openly acknowledged and congratulated eachother when they hit good shots, and obviously thoroughly enjoyed playing together. It was wonderful to see.
We are seeing golf being played like it has never been played before, and in the spirit it was always intended to be played. It's a joy to watch. For all the naysayers who have claimed that golf is in trouble, particularly without Tiger Woods in the hunt, I suggest you think again. This has been one of the best years I've ever seen in golf; from Spieth's great record-tying win at Augusta, to Fowler's incredible birdie run to win at the Players, to Jason Day's record-breaking PGA victory, golf has seemingly gone to a whole new level.
And, perhaps best of all, contrary to the old saying, in golf at least, nice guys do not finish last. Does it get any better than this?
