You may have noticed, but golf’s rules are going to change soon. (Well, January 2019.) It’s the biggest news of the year that doesn’t involve anyone called Tiger Woods, so what else could we possible talk about for this week’s Niggle podcast?

And who better to join host Alex Perry than NCG editor Dan Murphy, deputy editor Mark Townsend, and club editor Steve Carroll?
