Alex Perry, Hannah Holden and George Cooper give their verdict on a wonderful week at Brookline, as well as looking forward to the 150th Open at St Andrews. Plus, there's a bit of LIV chat (sorry)

In this episode of The Slam podcast from National Club Golfer, Alex Perry, Hannah Holden and George Cooper look back on a remarkable week at the US Open, where Matt Fitzpatrick topped an epic tussle with Will Zalatoris and World No 1 Scottie Scheffler to win his first major championship.

The trio also discuss the players rumoured to be joining LIV Golf – including who would upset them the most – as well as the Aramco debate currently swirling around the game.

We also find some time to look ahead to The Open, as well as sharing our controversial golf opinions.
