Whilst Hoylake suffered its first deluge of rain, members of the Golf Monthly team retreated to the TaylorMade Tour van. Always an interesting place to be at any tournament but this week in particular, as players make tweaks to their set-ups to handle the links test, so there is usually an interesting sight or story.

So keen was he to get exactly the right feel and alignment, he left nothing to chance. Watch the accompanying video and you’ll see just how familiar Sir Nick Faldo is with the process and how to get it right.
