An update on golf courses reopening in England and reaction to a busy week in the sport all feature in another bumper edition of the Sky Sports Golf podcast.
England Golf CEO Jeremy Tomlinson is among the guests, joining host Josh Antmann to give his reaction to the government's announcement that courses can reopen in England when lockdown ends on December 2.
Tomlinson discusses how the golfing community united to help people get playing again and looks at the safety precautions in place to make the sport Covid-secure, plus explains what he hopes happens to courses if there are further lockdowns.

"We've made our point not only for golf to come back on December 2 but also for golf to be thought about in a much more serious light if we go into another lockdown, so we can look to keep it open," Tomlinson told the Sky Sports Golf podcast.

"As from next Wednesday, the tee times open up and fourballs out there so we can get back out there. We'll be Covid safe and we'll be socially distanced, but people can get and play golf again which is fantastic for both golfers and golf courses alike."
