The Slam: Recapping a wild few days in the world of golf

The Slam: Recapping a wild few days in the world of golf

In this week's episode, Alex Perry and George Cooper recap wild finishes to both the DP World Tour and LPGA seasons - and much, much more
 

In this week’s episode of The Slam, a National Club Golfer podcast, there is plenty to discuss from an incredibly busy week that saw the end of the 2022 seasons for both the DP World and LPGA Tours.

When it comes to the former, something isn’t quite right when it comes to how the Race to Dubai standings are calculated, and we think we’ve come up with the perfect plan to solve it. (Mr Pelley, if you’re listening, slide into our DMs.)

As for the latter, it’s been another wonderful season for women’s golf which, we argue, has never been in better shape, and what Lydia Ko has to do to be in the conversation for GOAT status.

We also discuss the bug OWGR fallout – though we don’t necessarily have a fix for this – as well as Cameron Smith and his rather controversial claims about why he moved to LIV, and that phone call with Rory McIlroy.

And we couldn’t let Bryson DeChambeau off the hook – so our resident elite amateur athlete has his say on that matter.

There may also be some World Cup chat, so sorry in advance about that.

Enjoy!
