And it doesn’t look like the game’s going to be in his future, either. My five-year-old son’s first trip to watch the golf at Dundonald Links was scrapped when the weather front came in on the Saturday. Introducing him to 30mph winds and torrential rain would have made him hate the game from the off. So, we scrapped that idea and watched it on the couch. I did, anyway. A few days later, after returning mid-week from Birkdale, my TV was a no-go area for anyone else in the house that weekend. When Rory was announced onto the first tee on the Saturday, my boy said: “Is that Rory McIlroy?” I said yes, and explained that Rory made bucketloads of money playing golf. “Do you want to be a golfer when you’re older?” I asked him.“No,” he said.“Then what do you want to do?”“I want to stay home all day and watch TV,” he said.There’s no arguing with that. The R&A just couldn’t have asked for a better winner than Jordan Spieth, and if he goes on to win the US PGA this year, he’ll be the youngest to win the Grand Slam. Comparisons with Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus are not popular, but they are justified. If you don’t think Spieth deserves such treatment, then don’t turn to page 40, where Jack v Tiger v Jordan   forms part of our Open recap. If, however, there’s only one thing you read in this issue, make it Who’s Your Daddy?   PXG founder Bob Parsons is a dot-com billionaire with one hell of a story to tell, which Michael McEwan illustrates beautifully.
