John asked one question: why does the USGA deem it necessary to research making the golf equipment not work as strongly based on the results of just the top 1 tenth of the top 1 percent? That set Jeff off on a tirade. You’ve heard the complaints, right? The golf balls today fly too far. The golf clubs today hit the ball too far. The players of today are hitting too long and are making the courses obsolete. Sure, the top 125 players maybe. But why will the USGA and the R&A study the situation? Will they ruin it for the average recreational golfer? If they can, they will unless cooler heads prevail. Jack Nicklaus thinks the balls are “juiced”. He thinks the technology needs to be brought back a few notches. The game we play and the game played on the PGA Tour may have the same name and the same rules, but those guys are not playing the same game as we mere mortals. Listen this week as John and Jeff plot to save the game of golf from the USGA.
