Has the decision to offer DP World Tour membership to PGA Tour players who don’t make the grade put European golf in its place, or does it offer a new hierarchy and should be celebrated? Our podcast team get stuck in
If the PGA Tour is the Premier League, does that make the DP World Tour the ‘Championship’? Or is it even worse than that?
In this episode of the From the Clubhouse podcast, Tom Irwin and Steve Carroll unpick the bones of the DP World Tour’s offer of full membership to players who have failed to keep their PGA Tour cards.
Is it, as some are claiming, confirmation of the status of European golf as a feeder tour, or can this new element of the strategic alliance work to everyone’s advantage?
Elsewhere, some significant changes have been announced at another Open venue with the bulldozers moving into Royal Birkdale.
We ask if such tinkering enhances or spoils classic courses and consider whether our best layouts should move with the times or stay as museum pieces.
Steve has also spent the last five months playing every score counts golf. He gives a final update of what happened to his World Handicap System index over the summer season.
And after Brooks Koepka questioned whether golf was actually a sport, our duo’s temperatures start rising.
Let’s see if you can keep your composure too during their hour of debate.
From the Clubhouse is produced in association with TaylorMade Golf.
