Rory McIlroy is back to World No 1. What's next? And were his comments about LIV Golf justified? Alex Perry and George Cooper discuss

Another fun-filled week on The Slam, a National Club Golfer podcast, where Alex Perry and George Cooper discuss Rory McIlroy and his return to World No 1. Is the best we’ve ever seen of the four-time major champion? And what did we make of those comments responding to Phil Mickelson’s not-so subtle dig at the PGA Tour?

Meanwhile, there was some huge news from the Clutch Pro Tour last week, so we invited co-founder Tom Hayward on to talk us through his exciting plans for 2023 and what that means for those players left in the cold by the collapse of the EuroPro Tour.

Enjoy. 

Discussed in the podcast…

A Devonian who enjoys wittering on about his south west roots, Alex moved north to join NCG after more than a decade in London, the last five of which were with ESPN. Away from golf, Alex follows Torquay United and spends too much time playing his PlayStation or his guitar and not enough time practising his short game.
