As rumours begin to filter out of the LIV Golf camp, it looks like the Ryder Cup is facing its biggest issue in modern times. The NCG team discuss what this could mean for the event as a whole

In this week’s episode of The Slam – a National Club Golfer podcast – I’m joined by the whole team of Steve Carroll, Hannah Holden and George Cooper, who are back from a week at The Open – and what an Open it was. 

But did Rory McIlroy blow it? Or was Cam Smith just too good? Hannah was up close and personal with the Northern Irishman for his final round.

Elsewhere, LIV Golf are about to make a huge announcement that will affect the Ryder Cup in a monumental way. What can the European Tour do – if anything – to counter the breakaway series’ boldest move to date?

The team discuss this and so much more over the next 55 minutes…
