In Athlon Sports' 2013 Golf Annual, FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker sits down for an exclusive Q&A before sharing his secrets from tee-to-green in our instruction section. There is also expanded video coverage of Brandt's golf tips on AthlonSports.com.
We dive into golf's hot topics in "PGA Tour: Off the Record," an anonymous survey taken at the 2012 Tour Championship. The players pulled no punches discussing with whom they'd rather play golf or join for dinner, Tiger or Phil? Or if the FedExCup format needs tweaking? Or what they would change if made commissioner for a day?
"Teeing Off" covers a wide range of issues within the global game, including Tiger Woods' quest for a 15th major, Rory McIlroy's follow-up to a record-breaking 2012 season, the anchored putter debate and a 14-year-old set to tee off at Augusta National.
Speaking of the most storied golf club in the world, "Augusta National's Brave New World" takes a look at the first two female members, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and financier Darla Moore.
This year's magazine also includes insightful commentary by Golf Channel lead analyst Brandel Chamblee, who provides his take on each player ranked in Athlon Sports' Top 20 as well as an overview and prediction for each of this season's major championships.
As always, we provide hole-by-hole coverage for all four of this season's major championships — The Masters at Augusta National, the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania, the British Open at Muirfield Golf Course in Scotland, and the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in New York — as well as a look ahead to the Presidents Cup.
We unwind with a little R&R in our "Resorts and Real Estate" golf destination tips, look at "18 Holes to Play" for anyone working on their bucket list along with their golf game, and highlight the sport's cutting edge technology in "The Pro Shop: Athlon's Must-Have List for 2013" — which previews the best clubs, apps, shoes, shades and golf gear on the market.
Finally, we end our round with a look at the current contenders for the title of "best player never to win a major" championship. Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia have failed to live up to their "next Tiger" billing, while a handful of Americans and Englishmen are knocking on the door.
