Using this logic would you be cool with Major League Baseball allowing aluminium bats to be used - thereby turning games into a veritable Home Run Derby?I'm sure the players 20 years ago were having the same conversations on how to change things to stop technology, i'm ok with the idea of improving things via technology, you can't sit still, everyone has the same access to modern technology.
The ball roll back would be toxic for golfers like myself who don’t hit it a long way. Pardon the punI'm totally against the ball roll back.
I'd propose far greater risk reward for those wanting to hit bombs, longer rough from 290-370m. Narrow the fairways in that distance range as well
An associate of mine who used to caddie on the tour believes at least one event should provide players with one type of ball. a la tennis tourneys.I would love to see a tournament where the players could only use Hickory clubs from back in the day
Just be curious to see how they navigated courses that they could no longer overpower
I wish they didn’t ban the trampoline drivers at the start of the century. They should have allowed them to be used in amateur club events. I played with a fellow leftie who had the Callaway ERC II. I hit it on the last hole and even though I miss hit it it went further than I had ever hit one on that hole before.More likely the equipment is rolled back for professional golfers rather than recreational players.
Reckon you'll see a bit more in the way of left field formats if the Premier Golf League takes hold. Let's face it anything has to be more interesting than the current PGA Tour wraparound schedule with endless numbers of boring 72 hole tournaments.It would never happen on the PGA tour but i'd love it if there was more in game match play and prop bets and the players were mic'd up. Like a Tiger vs Phil but have 5 pairings or three balls and a mixture of men and women.
One hold where they can only use one club, side bets for closest to the pin etc.
Bifurcation for golf balls has been rejected in the past,but it's something i'd like to see at the very least. It's tiresome watching pros hitting wedges into greens. Shot values have to be restored to a lot of courses when the pros come to town.More likely the equipment is rolled back for professional golfers rather than recreational players.
I’m watching it now. Brad Kennedy was 4 in front with 4 to play and now needs to make a 20 footer or he’s in a playoff with two others.I've just noticed that Foxtel are televising the QLD PGA from the Toowoomba City Golf Club. Is that from your neck of the woods, Lebbo?
