We round up a huge week in the world of golf, featuring Europe's Solheim Cup triumph and the FedEx Cup conclusion

Podcast: Solheim Cup Overshadows FedEx Cup Failings

On the podcast this week Dan and Elliott look back on Team Europe's sensational Solheim Cup and all the big stories from Inverness.

We also discuss the FedEx Cup and whether the format needs to change plus ask if money is ruining the game. There's also an interview with Golf Pairs MD Ross Forno, Ryder Cup picks and our Wentworth preview. Enjoy!

Listen below:

 

The Clubhouse is brought to you by Titleist, the #1 choice of players on the PGA Tour – including FedEx Cup champion Patrick Cantlay.

Cantlay claimed both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup titles with a Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist equipment.

It was the perfect end to another dominant season for the #1 brand in golf, which ranked as the most played golf ball, driver, hybrid, utility iron, iron and wedge across the 51 events of the 2020-21 PGA Tour season.

Not only that, but Titleist was also the most played golf ball at the Solheim Cup. The Pro V1 and Pro V1x were trusted by 21 of the 24 competitors at Inverness Club, including 10 of the victorious European team.

Titleist also tied for the most drivers and iron sets in play with six a piece in Toledo, while nine players had at least one Vokey Design wedge in their bag – more than any other brand.

Head to Titleist.co.uk (opens in new tab) to find your nearest fitting event and see for yourself why so many of the world’s best choose Titleist.
