We’ve all been in Rory McIlroy’s shoes. Someone gives us a bit of stick and we hit back. It’s just so hard to resist, isn’t it? Well, the four-time major champion found himself in hot water on Twitter this week, and as a result he decided to hand his phone over to wife Erica – a pretty brave decision in itself…

Elsewhere, we assess the Open Championship’s prize money, and Phil Mickelson’s former caddie Jim ‘Bones’ Mackay has a new job already.

It’s all in this week’s episode of the Slam…

About the Slam

Founded in 2017 in a tiny green room in Leeds, The Slam, presented by Alex Perry, is National Club Golfer’s irreverent look back on the biggest news of the week from the golfing world.

It has since received rave reviews from the critics:

“This guy is nowhere near as funny as he thinks he is” – Facebook

“I wish he would get his hair cut” – YouTube

“WTF” – Twitter

“I heard him say Tiger Woods. Did he criticise Tiger Woods?” – Tiger Woods fans

“You look very handsome and I’m ever so proud” – Alex’s mum

If you’d like more musings from Alex’s little world, you can follow him on Twitter. Or don’t, that’s up to you. Probably best you don’t.
