Golf may not be deemed the most exciting of sports; the slow-paced activity tends to conjure up images of slightly overweight men in questionable sweater vests rather than an adrenalin-pumping edge-of-your-seat kind of spectacle. But with fresh young talent like Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlory and Rickie Fowler breathing new life into the game, we may see a revolution for golf yet.
One man showing the intrigue to golf is Swedish illustrator Martin Nicolausson. This series – aptly named Golf – is a modern, contemporary showcase of the sport, using a muted pastel colour palette to put fun in to golf and steer it away from its stuffy image.
