The Slam: PGA Championship Review – Brooks Koepka is back and Michael Block was brilliant!

On the latest episode of the NCG Podcast, Matt Chivers and Tom Irwin looks back on a memorable PGA Championship and yet another Wanamaker trophy for Brooks Koepka!
 

Brooks Koepka was back to his formidable best at the 2023 PGA Championship – winning by two shots from Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler.

In this episode of The Slam – a National Club Golfer podcast in association with Callaway – Tom Irwin and Matt Chivers talk about Koepka’s return to major glory and how he did it on the final day at Oak Hill.

Michael Block raised the roof with an amazing hole-in-one in New York and emerged as the fan favourite of the week – even having played with Rory McIlroy.

What repercussions does Koepka’s fifth major trophy have for the LIV Golf League and is the American now locked in for the 2023 US Ryder Cup team?

Now on the wrong side of 25, Matt has been playing golf since the age of 13 and was largely inspired to take up the game by countless family members who played golf during his childhood.

Matt is a member at Royal Cinque Ports in Deal playing off a 5 handicap, just a pitching wedge away from his hometown of Dover where he went to school and grew up. He has previously been a member at Etchinghill and Walmer and Kingsdown in Kent.

Having studied history at the University of Liverpool, Matt went on to pass his NCTJ Exams in Manchester a year later to fulfil his lifelong ambition of becoming a journalist. He picked up work experience along the way at places such as the Racing Post, the Independent, Sportsbeat and the Lancashire Evening Post.

Matt joined NCG in February 2023 and is the website’s main source of tour news, features and opinion. He has reported live from events such as The Open, the Ryder Cup and The Players Championship, having also interviewed and spent time with some of the biggest names in the sport.

Consuming tour golf on what is a 24/7 basis, you can come to Matt for informed views on the game and the latest updates on the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, LPGA Tour, Ladies European Tour and LIV Golf.

What’s in Matt’s bag: Cobra LTDx LS driver, Cobra LTDx 3-wood, TaylorMade P7MC irons, Ping Glide 4.0 wedges, Odyssey putter.
