In this week’s Niggle podcast, digital editor Alex Perry is joined by deputy editor Mark Townsend and club editor Steve Carroll to discuss topics that they decided on just minutes before recording.

First up is drinking on the course. Are you fond of a pint before a round? Why is it that golf clubs and airports are the only places where it’s acceptable to drink at 8am?

Also discussed is etiquette in the locker room. From communal combs to dangly balls, the golf locker room is like no other locker room in sport.

On Tour, aren’t we all pleased to see Ian Poulter back among it? And with the BMW PGA Championship round the corner, Steve tells us about his recent trip to Wentworth to check out the latest changes to the West Course.
