Podcast: Does Golf Need A Match Play Major?

On the Clubhouse this week, we look back on the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship at Austin Country Club, won by Billy Horschel.

What did we think of the pace of play? The format? And does golf need a match play Major? All these topics are discussed.

We also wrap up the European, PGA and LPGA Tour action, and we chat to the Iron Golfer Luke Willett who, on the day that golf returned in England, completed 18 holes barefooted in just 42 minutes!

Not only did the two finalists at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play trust a Titleist golf ball this week, but the winner was also playing a new TSi3 driver. Making it the second week in a row that a TSi driver has found the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour.

This is also the second time this season that a PGA Tour winner has chosen to play a TSi driver without an agreement, as it continues to be the most played driver this season on the PGA Tour. Head to titleist.co.uk to find out more about the number one Golf Ball and Driver on the PGA Tour.

The Clubhouse Podcast is brought to you by Titleist, the #1 ball in golf, and the most played golf ball at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play – with 72 per cent of the field putting one in play in Austin last week, including winner Billy Horschel. For more information head to Titleist.co.uk.
