The Slam – a National Club Golfer podcast in association with Callaway Golf – is back for 2023! 

Alex Perry is joined by a brand new co-host, Matt Chivers, and the pair discuss Jon Rahm’s remarkable form, Lydia Ko’s return to the top, and have their say on that “prank” by Tiger Woods at the Genesis Invitational.

Elsewhere, LIV Golf is back and one of its stars is already thinking about coming back to the PGA Tour, while others are upset that their Ryder Cup dreams are being crushed.

Alex and Matt also give their thoughts on the Netflix documentary, Full Swing. 

There’s a lot to get through, so let’s get stuck in…
