Top five golfing performances of the year

With all four majors behind us and the curtain coming down on the 2023 golfing season, it is time to take a look back at some of the best performances and moments from the past year.

Below we take you through the five best moments from the last year in golf.

‘Rahmbo’ wins final round shootout at The Masters

It certainly didn’t take Jon Rahm long to find his stride in 2023 as he picked up his first win just eight days into the year at the Tournament Of Champions, making it two in a row at The American Express just two weeks later.

Rahm headed into The Masters with three titles to his name already, after picking up the Genisis Open title in mid-February to rise to third in the world golf rankings prior to the sport’s most prestigious tournament.

Heading into the final round, Rahm was two shots back from leader Brooks Koepka, with the two set to go out last to battle it out for the title. What followed was to be a combination of John Rahm being absolutely on fire, and Koepka melting under heat.

Rahm would go on to shoot an impressive three under par score of 69, whilst Koepka wilted to a three over 75. Rahm would win his first ever Masters title by a four-shot margin, joining an illustrious club of Green Jacket owners.

Michael Blocks out the pressure at PGA Championship

Prior to the 2023 PGA Championship, Michael Block was little more than the club pro in Southern California. He had played in 25 PGA Tour events, making four cuts, and winning the Southern California PGA Player of the Year nine times from 2012 to 2022.

Block caught the headlines at the end of the second day as he was the only club professional to do so. Fans really started to take notice when Block shot a level-par third round, whilst playing with Justin Rose, to finish the day in eighth position.

The pressure was piled on Block after he found out that he would be playing his final round alongside Rory McIlroy, but the American certainly didn’t crumble. After a largely steady round, Block scored a hole in one at the 15th hole on his way to a round of 71, which saw him finish in 15th place to complete one of the greatest underdog stories in golf’s recent memory.

Harman walks alone atop Royal Liverpool leaderboard

If you had told someone in 2017 that Brian Harman was going to win The Open in 2023, not many would have questioned you after he finished T13 at the tournament, as well as T2 in the US Open that year, but at 125/1 he didn’t roll up to Royal Liverpool with much expectation.

Harman didn’t set the field alight straight away and after the first round all eyes were on hometown hero Tommy Fleetwood who led by one. The second round was when the tide took an insurmountable shift with Harman ending the second round five shots ahead of the rest, the joint largest lead after 36 holes at the Open Championship since 1934.

On what was a sparse, windy and far from easy Royal Liverpool course, many expected some of the bigger names to reel in Harman as the holes passed, but the American had other ideas. Harman went two under par in his third round to keep his lead at the top to five shots.

With last round nerves the talk of the media, some of whom were hoping that Harman would faulter, the lesser-known lefty proved all doubters wrong as he topped the leaderboard by an emphatic six shot margin as he lifted his first ever Major title.

DeChambeau shoots record-equalling 58

LIV Golf has been a big talking point this season, less so the events that have actually taken place on the breakaway tour’s courses. Although LIV Golf is seen by many to be a less competitive environment, Bryson DeChambeau achieved a feat which would be tough for most to match at a pitch and putt, never mind a professional golf course.

DeChambeau winning his first LIV Golf title at the Greenbrier was far from the headline on the back page, with his final round score of 58 the main talking point. The big-hitting American’s scorecard consisted of 13 birdies and just one bogey as he became just the seventh man to shoot 58 in men’s professional golf and only the fourth to do so on a main tour.

Europe take over Rome in a day

After all of the individual achievements we saw throughout the year, it was a team performance that truly capped a fascinating year of golf. Team Europe headed to Rome for the 2023 Ryder Cup with revenge on the agenda and stacked team ready to make their mark… and make their mark they did.

Nothing sets the tone for a Ryder Cup tournament like a chip-in on the first hole and Viktor Hovland produced just that to send him and Ludvig Aberg one up – Team Europe never looked back from that moment.

After just one day’s play the Europeans had produced a highlight reel fit for the entire weekend as they finished day one with a five-point lead, with many believing that the competition was already over.

Europe did not once take their finger off the pulse, with standout performance coming from Rory McIlroy, Tyrrell Hatton and Viktor Hovland. Luke Donald’s men would avenge their 2021 defeat and more, winning the competition by a margin of 16.5 points to 11.5.

America’s Hot Takes on Reddit’s Top Controversial Opinions

There’s nothing that ignites a heated debate more than a controversial opinion, but we’re not talking about pineapples on pizza or if “Friends” deserves the hype it gets anymore. Instead, we set out to uncover the latest and niche unpopular opinions that’ve been creating some buzz online these days. Out with the old, in with the new! 

To unveil this year’s current controversial opinions, we headed to Reddit’s /unpopularopinion/controversial thread and assembled the 15 most upvoted opinions in 2023. From this, we conducted a nationwide survey to measure whether Americans agree or disagree with these contentious views. Here’s what the nation has to say.

Key Findings:

  • 74.7% of Americans unite in agreement on the unpopular opinion that “you’re not vegetarian if you eat fish.”
  • Americans were almost evenly split on two statements: “there’s no valid reason to hate Meghan Markle or Prince Harry” and “Seinfeld isn’t as funny as people make it out to be!” 
  • 89.8% disagree with a majorly unpopular opinion: “sitting on the beach is a waste of a vacation.”

Top (un)popular opinions Americans stand by

Reddit is well-known for their directness and honest opinions, but do you know who else is famous for their passionate views? Americans. Here are some of the unpopular Reddit opinions that a significant majority of Americans solidly agree with.

Over 15.7k Redditors and 74.7% of survey respondents united in agreement that “you’re not vegetarian if you eat fish.” This may seem obvious to some, but the pescatarian diet has blurred the lines for many. One Reddit user even commented “True! I worked with a guy who ate fish but no other meat (well, except eggs) and he said he won’t eat anything with a neck.” Clearly his co-worker has never watched Finding Nemo as “fish are friends, not food.”

Taking a health-conscious stance, 61.1% also agree that “cigarettes should be banned”. Yet with 30.3k upvotes on Reddit, there’s been a lot of back and forth in the thread. While many Redditors support the idea of banning cigarettes, others argued against prohibition, stating “ban banning things”. Surprisingly enough though, past and current smokers chimed in and also agreed with the majority of Americans on their stance.

United States of America? More like Divided States of America

Here ye, here ye – “there’s no valid reason to hate Meghan Markle or Prince Harry,” says 56.4% of Americans. The original poster (OP) wrote “they’re allowed to share their thoughts about the royal family…it feels like a hate train people are joining because it’s popular.” This sentiment seems to resonate with slightly more than half of the nation. However, the opinions were closely divided, as one Redditor jokingly remarked, “Harry, is that you? What have we told you about seeking validation on social media?” – representing the 43.6% who do see a valid reason to maintain negative feelings towards the once royal couple.

“Hello Newman”, sorry to break it to you but a little over half (52.9%) of the country thinks “Seinfeld isn’t as funny as people make it out to be!” The OP reveals their struggle to find entertainment with the show and states, “I’m currently at the beginning of season six after kind of torturing myself through the first five…I don’t know what all the hype is about and how it could be unbelievably successful.” The defense of this controversial opinion, however, argues, “the people under 30 don’t get it either because the show is driven by human interactions.” Fair enough.

(No) Thank you, next! Unpopular opinions that remains unpopular

One thing about us, Americans, is we have a strong fondness for comfort aka leisurewear and pajamas. However, an OP clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and sparked a debate, declaring “pajamas are stupid and unnecessary tradition.” An astounding 84.7% of respondents strongly disagrees, with over 14.1k Redditors ready to defend pajamas’ honor. One user pointed out, “not sleeping in pajamas isn’t the problem, the problem is who the hell sleeps in jeans in bed on purpose.” Touché.

Do you sea what this OP seas? An overwhelming 85% of Americans oppose this unpopular opinion: “seafood is disgusting”. OP goes on to rant that “they look good, but the texture, the taste, and the overall experience of eating them, it just disgusts me”. A curt, but not harsh, response of “sorry your palate sucks” perfectly encapsulates the general belief shared across the nation. 

“Sitting on a beach is an absolute waste of a vacation,” says no one ever – oh wait, except for one Redditor who clearly doesn’t know how to vacation properly. A whopping 89.8% of Americans disagree entirely with the very unpopular opinion. Despite the mass disagreement, the thread accumulated 11k upvotes of indifferent responses. The top comment stated, “people enjoy vacations differently, when you plan your own you can do what you want…I can only stand it as long as there’s things to do or beer in the cooler.” It seems that cold beer on the beach is a solution for OP! 

In the end, Reddit and America never fails to provide us with intriguing hot takes. If you’re seeking some icebreakers for future social events or, dare we suggest, first dates, look no further than our very own curated list of the current top 15 most controversial opinions.


In July 2023, we delved through Reddit’s /unpopularopinion thread and refined our search to only ‘controversial’ and ‘this year’ posts. To uncover the 15 most controversial and unpopular opinions, we only gathered posts with at least 10k upvotes. After careful curation, we surveyed 1,500 U.S. residents to analyze if they agree or disagree with such views.

The average age of respondents was 38.6 years old. The representative sample comprised 49.5% male, 48% female, 2.1% non-binary, 0.3% transgender, and 0.1% other.

With a total race distance of a little over 300 kilometres, F1 drivers have to go through numerous sharp turns and long stretches, as well as green scenery and lakeside areas. Albert Park also hosts numerous supercar racing events.

Sandown Park

View at Sandown Raceway in Australia

This iconic motor racing circuit is located right next to Melbourne and is one of the largest motorsports complexes in the country. You can find a motor race track, a historic horse racecourse, and a greyhound racing track.

However, the V8 Supercar racing events are the most popular of all the races that take place in the park. Although the MRC pushed to reorganise Sandown Park, it still hosts some of the best events for motorsports in Australia.

Sydney Motorsport Park

The next iconic circuit in this guide of the best race tracks in Australia is located in Sydney. It comes down to Sydney Motorsport Park, which is one of the largest motorsport facilities all over the country.

The motorway at Sydney Motorsport Park offers four different circuit configurations with different lengths, difficulty, and combinations of turns. It makes it perfect for V8 supercar racing, S5000, TCR racing, and others.

Mallala Motorsport Park

Mallala Motorsport Track in Australia and Starting Line

It offers non-competitive open-track racing, where you can experience the thrill of the circuit by driving your car. The best thing is that it has a lot of long speed straights, which is perfect for fans of high-speed racing.

Mt. Panorama Motor Racing Circuit

Another one of the legendary Australian racetracks, Mt. Panorama Circuit, hosts the famous Bathurst 1000 and the Bathurst 12 Hour events. It is located about an hour’s drive from Downtown Sydney.

The length of the raceway is 6.2 km, which is quite a lot. It combines several long street circuits and features very long straights. It also hosts a wide variety of motorsports events, ranging from motorcycle racing to supercar racing.

Wanneroo Raceway

Carco Wanneroo Raceway is located just north of Perth and is one of the best racetracks in Australia. Without a doubt, it’s one of the largest motorsport complexes on the West Coast, featuring V8 supercar racing, Perth SuperSprint, and others.

Although it has a very short raceway (only 2.4 km), Wanneroo Raceway is a huge motorsport centre with a wide variety of sports and facilities. For example, it is good for motocross, go-karts, and drift racing as well.

This is also one of the largest Australian motor race tracks, and it features five configurations. It is located within the woodlands just south of Warwick. Nowadays, it is popular for hosting the Australian Superbike and Superkart championships.

It is also a great holiday destination, as it is quite remote from the big bustling city. Around the complex, you can also find horse and Polo courses, as well as dirt bike tracks and other motorsport facilities.

The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

It is not a full list of the best race tracks in Australia, as many other great circuits deserve to be mentioned here. However, The Philips Island Grand Prix Circuit is one of the most exotic ones.
