If you’re going to create a dedicated golf channel – secure the rights first

In this week's Slam, Alex Perry discusses the very real possibility that Sky Sports Golf won't have all the golf next year...
 

It’s been a couple of weeks to forget for Sky and their new Sky Sports Golf channel.

Shortly after it was announced alongside other dedicated channels for the likes of football and cricket, it was revealed that Sky had failed to secure the rights to next month’s PGA Championship. BBC Sport swooped in there – but this may not be the end of Sky’s woes

All this and much more – including the latest event to include walk-on music for its players – in this week’s Slam, National Club Golfer’s tongue-in-cheek look back on the golfing week…

About the Slam

Founded in 2017 in a tiny green room in Leeds, The Slam, presented by Alex Perry, is National Club Golfer’s irreverent look back on the biggest news of the week from the golfing world.

It has since received rave reviews from the critics:

“This guy is nowhere near as funny as he thinks he is” – Facebook

“I wish he would get his hair cut” – YouTube

“WTF” – Twitter

“I heard him say Tiger Woods. Did he criticise Tiger Woods?” – Tiger Woods fans

“You look very handsome and I’m ever so proud” – Alex’s mum

If you’d like more musings from Alex’s little world, you can follow him on Twitter. Or don’t, that’s up to you. Probably best you don’t.
