The Slam Podcast: Our predicted 2023 Ryder Cup teams are revealed!

Lucas Glover has expressed his desire to be in the US Ryder Cup team, but who have NCG selected in their line-ups for the 2023 matches?

 

Justin Thomas? Bryson DeChambeau? Lucas Glover?!

Every week, a new player appears in the thoughts of Zach Johnson, so Matt Chivers and Matt Coles discuss another impressive display from Lucas Glover at the FedEx St. Jude Championship and his desire to be on the US Ryder Cup team.

On the latest episode of The Slam, in association with Callaway, Matt Coles also reveals which players he would take to Marco Simone at the end of September with some surprise inclusions you mightn’t have expected.

Before that though, the team talked all things AIG and Lilia Vu’s stunning win at the Women’s Open at Walton Heath – and a valiant effort from the home favourite Charley Hull.

The team looks to the ever-approaching Solheim Cup too and discusses who could be selected to play at Finca Cortesin next month, a week before the Ryder Cup starts!

Cameron Smith notched another win on the LIV Golf Tour at Trump Bedminster, but be prepared for a Chivers rant as the team ponders what the PGA Tour could look like with Smith still in the fray.

We review all of the weekend’s action plus much more, so you know what to do!

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.

He has reported live from events such as The Open, the Ryder Cup and The Players Championship, having also interviewed and spoken to the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell, Henrik Stenson, to name just a few.
