Do you put on a Seve-style game face when you tee it up in the knockout or do you find match play such a fuss you don’t even bother to enter?
In this week’s From the Clubhouse podcast, in association with TaylorMade Golf, Tom Irwin and Steve Carroll go on a deep dive into club match play competitions.
Tom gets his medals out from successful forays into person-to-person combat and dissects the delights of this peculiar format – from arranging games to on-course small talk.
Steve reveals the strangest way he was kicked out of a competition and has a request for players he meets in match play: don’t ask him what he does for a living.
And, since everything always seems to end up back at the World Handicap System, the pair consider the allowances for single and betterball combat and ask if high handicappers have the advantage.
