The Slam Podcast: Which stars (if any) will turn up to LIV Golf Promotions?

Matt Coles and Matt Chivers get stuck into the LIV Golf major conundrum and the possibility of big stars playing in the LIV Promotions event…

 

The Slam Podcast – in association with Callaway – is back for another episode!

Two of NCG’s finest, Matt Coles and Matt Chivers, dive into another busy week of news both on and off the golf course.

On the course in Qatar, we saw heartbreak and ecstasy as stars of the DP World Tour battled to keep their playing cards for the next season.

On the LPGA Tour, Celine Boutier won AGAIN in Malaysia, but not without going through a nine-hole playoff(!) against Atthaya Thitikul.

Meanwhile, Alison Lee broke record after record in Riyadh on the Aramco Team Series with a score that left the NCG Team breathless.

Chiefs at the R&A and the Masters denied that separate spots could soon be opened to LIV Golf players – further restricting some of the LIV roster’s access to major championships.

Is this the correct route for LIV players? Like Bubba Watson said, should the tour aim for major places instead of world ranking points?

We also run through the details of the LIV Promotions Event – the Saudi-backed circuit’s own Q-school.

Invitations are open, but who will play? Will any stars from the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour turn up?

You know what to do! Listen to the Slam Podcast!

Matt Chivers

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 spoken to the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell, Henrik Stenson, to name just a few.

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.
