In showing off his impressive list of completed goals for the 2016/17 season after winning the FedEx Cup, Justin Thomas got everybody thinking about their goals…

Grayson Murray, a PGA Tour winner earlier this year, came up with his not so serious aims for 2017/18. Here they are:

So, FedEx Cup, a $19m season, a maiden major and likely to be named Player of the Year. Not a bad year for Justin Thomas.

But now it’s onto the Presidents Cup, where he was given quite the welcome by his USA teammates.

Have you ever wondered who would win in a 40-yard sprint between Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston and Boo Weekley?

The Hero Challenge kicked things off at the British Masters last night. Host Lee Westwood beat Sergio Garcia in the final but, in the celebrity shootout between Dan Walker, Robbie Fowler, Stuart Broad and Gaz from Geordie Shore, it ended in disaster for the latter.

Hard luck, Gaz!

Gaz is taking part in the British Masters Pro-Am alongside Ian Poulter but also playing in it is Britain’s tallest man, Paul Sturgess, who has been causing quite a stir among players and the media.
