Just get on with it, will you?

The UK government can learn a lot from golf. Alex Perry reveals how in this week's episode of the Slam...
 

Archaic British traditions that desperately need modernising? No, not the UK General Election, but golf’s honour system.

But you’ve been playing Ready Golf for years, right? And if not, why not? Well the R&A now see it as the answer to speeding up play in the amateur ranks.

Also, do you have any nicknames for your golf gear? Daniel Summerhays’ pet name for his putter is… interesting.

And Phil Mickelson gave up another shot at the Grand Slam for his daughter.

Why? Alex Perry explains all in this week’s episode of the Slam…

About the Slam

Founded in 2017 in a tiny green room in Leeds, The Slam, presented by Alex Perry, is National Club Golfer’s irreverent look back on the biggest news of the week from the golfing world.

It has since received rave reviews from the critics:

“This guy is nowhere near as funny as he thinks he is” – Facebook

“I wish he would get his hair cut” – YouTube

“WTF” – Twitter

“I heard him say Tiger Woods. Did he slag off Tiger Woods?” – Tiger Woods fans

“You look very handsome and I’m ever so proud” – Alex’s mum

If you’d like more musings from Alex’s little world, you can follow him on Twitter. Or don’t, that’s up to you. Probably best you don’t.
