In this episode of the The Slam, the NCG team are joined by AIG Women's Open champion Ashleigh Buhai's psychology mentor Duncan McCarthy for a fascinating chat

Ashleigh Buhai showed incredible grit and determination to recover from a triple-bogey nightmare and win the AIG Women’s Open following an enthralling playoff against In Gee Chun.

In this episode of The Slam, a National Club Golfer podcast, I’m joined by Hannah Holden and George Cooper for a full debrief of a wonderful event at Muirfield, including the much talked about playoff format and late finish, and we’re delighted to be joined by Buhai’s mental coach Duncan McCarthy of Underpin Sports for a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to golf and psychology.

Elsewhere, Hannah explains why the increased prize funds we’ve seen in the women’s game this year – particularly at the majors – is not just about paying the LPGA stars what they’re worth, but the trickle-down effect it will have on generations to come at grassroots level.
