Golf has gained ‘six-appeal’ and taken a significant step towards finding a marketable short form of the game.
The European Tour’s Golf Sixes, staged at the Centurion Club near St Albans, proved popular with players and fans and established itself as the blueprint for the sport’s version of cricket’s Twenty20 format.
This proves that meaningful golf matches can be played over as few as six holes. They can be done-and-dusted in little over an hour and a decent tournament can be completed in a weekend.
This is just what golf needs, with the current perception that the game is increasingly losing out because it takes too long to play and watch.
Every shot counts making the importance of a good start paramount, but there remains the opportunity for a dramatic fight-back. This is a formula that serves well in cricket’s IPL and Big-Bash matches.
