The Year In Retrospect
The 56th edition of Rolex Presents The World of Professional Golf chronicles an unprecedented year in golf in 2021. Never before had nine major championships been lined up alongside the Olympic Golf competitions, plus both the Solheim and Ryder Cups and the usual worldwide tours.
It was a feast of magnificent golf. Japan’s first male major champion Hideki Matsuyama, Phil Mickelson, the oldest major winner, Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa were among the stars in the men’s game, with Nelly Korda, Jin Young Ko, Patty Tavatanakit, Minjee Lee, and Anna Nordqvist to the fore among the women.
