Few golf courses in the world are quite as stunning as Crans-sur-Sierre, the location for next week's Omega European Masters.

Perched 5,000 feet above sea level in the Swiss mountains, it provides a unique test on tour, with balls flying much further at altitude than they usually would. That means big hitters can easily lose their range here, while the smarter golfers get the job done.

Many people fancy Ian Poulter to be in the hunt for a Claret Jug this weekend, though it might make the chaps at the Royal and Ancient choke on their gin if he made his acceptance speech in any of these outfits.

These are some our favourite Poults moments from down the years, but you can find more in Ian Poulter: The Biography of Britain’s Golfing Hero, out now and published by Andre Deutsch (£17.99, amazon.co.uk).

After heartbreak in last year's Open Championship, Adam Scott bounced back to win the Masters. Can he finally get his hands on the Claret Jug?

Adam Scott had no sooner slipped off his new Masters Green Jacket when his phone beeped. It was a text from his long-time friend and sparring partner Justin Rose – they were born two weeks apart, 33 years ago – congratulating him on landing that elusive first Major.

Scott’s reply was succinct but heartfelt.

There are stirrings in women's golf. Could it be that someone is going to win the Grand Slam of five (yes, five) Majors in a single season?

Golf’s self-styled ‘fifth major’ tees off on Thursday, desperately hoping for a marquee winner to thrust it back into the big time. Before the advent of the World Golf Championships as a second tier of events underneath the Majors, there was no question that the Players Championship was a seriously big deal.

Justin Rose: 'There's no reason why I can't contend'

Those natty green jackets they hand over in that rather awkward ceremony at the Masters every year don’t just symbolise victory. They signify life membership to Augusta National Golf Club: the most prestigious golf club in the world.

Many of the finest players in the game never got to put on the Green Jacket. The Masters provides a unique test in golf –only a handful have ever got to grips with it.
