We take a look inside the new issue, which this month includes a special mavericks section. Our countdown of the greatest showmen golf has ever seen concludes with a six-page feature on Seve Ballesteros as well as looking at some of the characters in the modern game. We also get some valuable advice from short-game wizard Shane Lowry and take a trip to Sweden to visit the headquarters of Galvin Green to discover some of the secrets of the brand. If that’s not enough we feature all the usual jam-packed gear, courses, and rules sections plus opinion from Wayne Riley, Dan Walker Chris Wood and Bill Elliott.
