Sports editor Mark Atkinson puts those questions to our golf correspondent Martin Dempster in the latest edition of The Scotsman Golf Show, which also looks at the distinct possibility of Tiger Woods playing in next month’s US PGA Championship after playing a practice round at Southern Hills in Tulsa on Thursday.

Other topics include a fairytale for Greig Hutcheon as he looks forward to teeing up again on the DP World Tour at the age of 49, as well as exciting times in the women’s amateur game thanks to Grace Crawford, Hannah Darling and Louise Duncan.
