In this episode we are joined by golf journalist and consultant Adam Lawrence. Despite attending the same school as Dr Alistair MacKenzie, Adam is currently writing a biograpahy on Harry Shapland Colt, the father of modern golf course architecture. We explore Colt's early golfing days at Cambridge and his early influences, R&A membership and the formation of the Oxford & Cambridge Golf Society. We then take a look at some of Colts' designs at Rye, Sunningdale, St. Andrews, Swinley Forest, St Georges Hill, Rosapenna, Royal Dublin, Royal County Down, County Sligo, Royal Portrush and Royal Liverpool. We also consider how Colt's style evolved through time and what sort of legacy has he left to the game.

It's a live recording with Andy and Brendan in front of some fine Philly folks ahead of the Fried Egg event in town on Monday. It's the first applause they can recall during a recording with an audience so after a few comments about the locals, they dive into the weekend that was in golf. They start with the Women's Open at Muirfield, which went deep into the night during an interminable playoff with Ash Buhai eventually prevailing. They discuss her roller coaster weekend, her eager significant other jumping into the frame, and how Muirfield played for the women. Then it's on to Playoffs talk, with ample time set aside for more Max McGreevy facts and appreciation. Tom Kim is given his due with some stories of his first moments in the States. They also delight in the Comcast Top 10 being neglected during its most pivotal moment. They close with the odd Zalatoris caddy break-up and some thoughts on the LIV TRO hearing coming on Tuesday.
Lots to unpack on the recap pod tonight as Ashleigh Buhai wins the 2022 AIG Women's Open at Muirfield by defeating In Gee Chun in a four hole sudden death playoff. Meanwhile stateside in Greensboro, Tom Kim wins the Wyndham by five shots after a 61 on Sunday to close down the 2022 PGA Tour Regular Season - and Nick Faldo's CBS broadcasting career. Off the course, eleven LIV players - including Phil and Bryson - have filed an antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour with three players seeking a temporary restraining order aiming to compete in this week's FedEx Cup Playoffs. We try to make sense of the lawsuit with Lauren Donahue, a Chicago based attorney who specializes in antitrust, competition and trade regulation and then have an extended chat with friend of the pod Will Bardwell who helps contextualize the legal implications and what's ahead in both short and long term scenarios.
WE BACK AT THE AIG WOMENS OPEN Rossco checks back in sitting in his car in St Andrews after a week's break for the team and updates on his visit to Muirfield and plants the seed of a team tour to Liverpool for the 151st open.

In this episode of The Slam, a National Club Golfer podcast, Alex Perry, Hannah Holden and George Cooper debrief a wonderful AIG Women's Open, including the much talked about playoff format and late finish at Muirfield, before champion Ashleigh Buhai's mental coach Duncan McCarthy joins for a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to golf and psychology. Elsewhere, Hannah explains why the increased prize funds we've seen in the women's game this year - particularly at the majors - is not just about paying the LPGA stars what they're worth, but the trickle-down effect it will have on generations to come at grassroots level. Enjoy.
Die Suid-Afrikaner, Ashleigh Buhai het haar eerste major-titel gewen by die Britse Ope vir Vroue op Muirfield, na ŉ uitspeelwedstryd teen Chun In-gee.

This Friday episode begins with the 100-plus page complaint filed by 11 LIV players against the PGA Tour, as well as the temporary restraining order that will go to court next week. Andy and Brendan react to the complaint, its allegations and arguments, and the PGA Tour's potential missteps and response going forward. They highlight a couple aspects they find compelling, dubious, and amusing in the whole mess that will be instrumental in how the future of golf looks, with an antitrust expert coming later in the week on the podcast to get into more of the details. The second half of the pod discusses early action from Muirfield at the Women's Open, Webb Simpson becoming a vice captain, and a Flashback Friday to that time a scorecard “countback” decided the Women's Open.

As always, thank you for listening!
This Wednesday episode begins with some thoughts on the last major of the year, the AIG Women's Open at Muirfield. Andy and Brendan discuss their recent trip to the course, some favorite holes, some amusing stories, and how the women's game might bring it into the modern world. On the PGA Tour, they discuss the myth of the FEC bubble and how many players hovering around it are truly unworthy of a “postseason” berth after this week's Wyndham. This leads to more Max McGreevy facts than you could ever anticipate. James Hahn's weird and misguided tweets are dissected, as is the new PGA Tour schedule, which seems to do nothing more than throw some money at the problems while changing very little else. News hits on Tiger Woods's astronomical offer to join LIV, Patrick Reed going to Asia to play golf, and a Henrik Stenson conspiracy theory.
It's the final major of the year this week and what a fitting end to a fabulous run of Grand Slam events with the world's best women set to take on the Muirfield golf course in Scotland. Women and Golf Editor Emma Ballard is on site for the week and joins the pod to set the scene for what promises to be a great event.

In this week's episode of The Slam, a podcast from National Club Golfer, Alex Perry is joined by Hannah Holden, George Cooper and Tom Irwin to discuss the latest round of LIV Golf, including winner Henrik Stenson's rather sour victory speech, as well as the man who will replace him as Ryder Cup captain, Luke Donald. Is the Englishman the right choice? The team are divided - and there is even a rather out there approach suggested by one. Should it actually have been one of the current superstar crop - namely Rory McIlroy? The discussion then moves onto this week's Women's Open at Muirfield, a golf club which has been under the microscope for some time due to its controversial stance on women in the game. Should they be hosting the biggest women's competition outside of the US? The team argue for and against the case. If it's strong opinions on the hottest topics in the game you're after, you're in the right place.

Winner of the 1973 Masters Tournament, Tommy Aaron, begins his story by recounting his younger days growing up in a town with no golf course and attending a high school with no golf team yet still persevering to win the Georgia State Class A High School Golf Championship. After much collegiate and amateur success, including a runner-up finish to Charlie Coe at the 1958 U.S. Amateur and playing on the winning Walker Cup team at Muirfield in 1959, Tommy turned pro in 1960 at age 23. He relates the influence Manuel de la Torre, the great teacher and Milwaukee CC professional, had on his later game and then fondly recalls his PGA Tour wins leading up to his crowning achievement in his home state.

Unlike many Open Champions, Tom Watson did not have to wait long to get his hands on the Claret Jug. Also unlike other Champion Golfers, Watson was prolific in golf's original Major to an historic degree, with a large portion of his victories in The Open coming while he still disliked the challenge of links golf.One of the most successful golfers in history, and a steely competitor with a tenacious game, Watson accomplished an immense amount on the British Isles in his lifetime. And as the Kansas City native learned to embrace links golf, all while earning a reputation as one of the most gracious and respectful Champions in the game, fans of The Open embraced him in return. In this brand new three-part documentary, hear from the legendary Tom Watson, his manager Barry Hyde, his friend and Major Champion John Mahaffey and one of Tom's greatest rivals and inspirations, Jack Nicklaus, in an exploration of what made Watson one of the greatest Open Champions of all time. Listen to the second of three parts here, only on The Open Podcasts.

World Golf Hall of Fame member, Laura Davies, recalls learning the game by tagging along with her brother and his friends growing up in England. Self-taught by mimicking some of the greats of the game at the time (Ballesteros, Woosnam, etc.), Laura's game developed quickly and she was selected to play in the Curtis Cup at Muirfield in 1984. She turned pro the following year and had the first of her 87 professional wins in 1985 at the Belgian Ladies Open. Laura recounts some of her other early wins including the 1986 Women's British Open at Birkdale (before it was a major) and the 1987 U.S. Women's Open at Plainfield CC in an 18-hole playoff with two other HOFer's, JoAnne Carner and Ayako Okamoto.
