The rollback in golf ball distance, events at the Valspar Championship, the first Aramco Team event of 2023 and cheeseburger tattoos feature in the latest edition of the Sky Sports Golf podcast.
Sophie Walker, Richard McEvoy and DP World Tour player Richard Mansell join regular host Josh Antmann to reflect on another busy week in the sport.
Our guests give their thoughts on what the USGA and R&A’s distance-reducing ball proposal means for both sides of the argument, and look at how professional players will adapt to playing with a new ball in the majors and on the PGA Tour.

Quotes from other players around the world criticising the plans are looked at, while we also ask: If the golf ball isn’t the problem, what would they change?
Other topics on the episode include: Is golf too similar week in week out? Is the driver is too easy to hit these days? And how can golf courses be changed?
The Ladies European Tour is also reviewed, as is the Valspar Championship, where the question is asked as to whether Jordan Spieth is close to his 2015 version.
