Just who will make Europe's Ryder Cup team amid all the LIV Golf turmoil? The NCG team get debating in this week's The Slam

In this week’s episode of The Slam, a podcast from National Club Golfer, Tom Irwin, George Cooper and Hannah Holden discuss who they think will make Luke Donald’s Ryder Cup squad following a gripping Italian Open at Marco Simone.

We then move onto – you guessed it – LIV Golf, unpacking another bonkers weekend of action before squabbling over whether Greg Norman’s league is really having a positive impact on the sport.

Elsewhere, the team compare their celebrity golf encounters while Hannah has a marvellous idea on how to save the Presidents Cup.

It’s jam packed this week, so as always, enjoy.
