That’s because Tom Irwin and Steve Carroll took the From the Clubhouse podcast, in association with TaylorMade Golf, on the road and visited Woodhall Spa, the headquarters of England Golf, to speak to James Luke, the governing body’s new Head of Handicapping and Course Rating.

We get stuck into course rating, PCC, interoperability, and much more besides – including if higher handicappers are actually dominating competitions, the vital role of the marker in protecting the integrity of the system, and what might be coming in the future.

There are some funny stories along the way too so let’s get stuck in…
