After yesterday’s technical hiccup we got things back on track today as Bruce Young joined host Rod Morri to chat about the Tiger/Rory bromance, Jiyai Shin’s stunning play at the Women’s British Open and some of the fascinating speakers at Australia’s PGA Coaching Summit last week.
It’s not every week you get to talk to a tournament winner so it was great to welcome the weekend’s OneAsia Tour winner Matt Griffin to the show and even better that he was joined by one of the keenest minds in the game in Michael Clayton. They chatted with host Rod Morri about the win in Korea as well as the Rory McIlroy/Tiger Woods rivalry, Lydia Ko at the Women’s British Open and how easy it is to get in trouble on Twitter.
Ryder Cup teams finalised, are Tiger’s outrageous earnings sustainable or even good for the game and will Jason Day pay a price with fans for not teeing up in Australia? All that and more on today’s TalkinGolf when host Rod Morri is joined by Golf World’s Ron Sirak (until the line dropped out) and The Age’s Martin Blake.
Can a 15-year-old girl really be a genuine contender at a major? According to today’s panellists Luke Elvy and Bruce Young, Lydia Ko is. Join these two and host Rod Morri as they discuss Ko’s stunning LPGA win plus whether the FedEx Cup have finally got it right and the upcoming Ryder Cup….
The year’s final major is run and won so now it’s time to rank them. Hear from the State of the Game team Mike Clayton, John Huggan and Geoff Shackelford as they break down the Grand Slam events of season 2012, from Bubba’s hooked wedge at Augusta to Rory’s dominating peroformance at Kiawah Island.
It’s probably the most unusual venue to host a major for many years which should make this week’s PGA Championship at Kiawah Island one of the most interesting tournaments in recent memory. Join host Rod Morri with AAP correspondent Ben Everill and noted analyst Bruce Young as they break down the 94th PGA Championship.
Should golf be in the Olympics, is women’s golf the best value proposition in the game and will players give up their anchored putters without a fight? All that and more on today’s TalkinGolf with Golf World’s Ron Sirak and Jeff Centenera of Inside Sport.

The most exciting week of the year for many as the 141st Open Championship gets underway at Royal Lytham and St Annes and host Rod Morri is joined by Luke Elvy and Mike Clayton to chat all things golf.

All that and plenty more on this instalment of TalkinGolf.
