On this episode of the the NCG Podcast, Alex Perry and Matt Chivers get stuck into the recent drama that saw Europe's Ryder Cup legends end their DP World Tour careers

It’s been a dramatic week on tour, with several European legends resigning  from the DP World Tour and effectively ending their Ryder Cup careers, so there’s plenty for Alex Perry and Matt Chivers to get into in this episode of The Slam – a National Club Golfer podcast in association with Callaway.
