On the cover of this month’s Compleat Golfer is reigning FedExCup winner, Rory McIlroy, who finds himself at somewhat of a crossroads in his lucrative career.

The year has absolutely flown by, but it is fitting that we take time to pause and reflect on Ernie Els’ entrance into the Major 100 club. We look back at his 28-year journey, which started at The Open as an amateur in 1989 and included four Majors.

We have a strong local feel to this issue as we look at the career of Shaun Norris, who shot 65 on Saturday at The Open. Ruan de Smidt is hoping to crack the big time at the European Tour Q-School, while youngsters Jayden Schaper and Casey Jarvis have given youth a massive injection following a string of wins.

PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas is featured again, after ticking off a whole host of achievements this year. One wonders what is next for the young American.

Durban Country Club is a course with a rich pedigree unmatched in South Africa, and is rightly our Course of the Month.

The regular instruction, opinion, fitness and rules features keep their place and Kurt Darren is our celebrity, who talks freely about is love of the game.

All this and more, in your September issue of Compleat Golfer
