In the first of our topic episodes, we talk golf with European Tour winner Peter Lawrie and Malachy Clerkin from the Irish Times.
We discuss Bryson DeChambeau’s lockdown transformation, whether questions should be asked, Malachy’s Irish Times article, Peter’s own experience with drug testing, the future of golf, Brooks Koepka’s tweet, the return of Tiger Woods and whether Rory McIlroy “chokes” when the pressure is on.
We also look ahead to some of the episodes we will be covering over the next few weeks.
