Did you know?

The village of Radyr is located alongside the River Taff in South Wales. The Taff rises in the Brecon Beacons before flowing through Methyr Tydfil, Aberfan, Pontypridd and finally Cardiff. The river, which supports a number of migratory fish, including salmon, sea trout and eel, flows out into the Bristol Channel, passing through Cardiff Bay.

The term "Taffy" (used by some as a nickname for Welsh people) was once thought to have originated from the name of the river. However, the Oxford English Dictionary ascribes the term to the Welsh pronunciation of David or Davy, which is a popular first name in Wales.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
