The concern that has been cited as the impetus for the proposal revolves, first around .001% of the golfing population and secondly and more importantly the problem which is trying to be resolved has not been adequately defined.

Quote
I believe it is a grave mistake to determine rules for all golfers based on the performance of the tiniest elite fraction of the golfing population.

Quote
My research on more than 18,000 concerned golfers does not show a single person who has quit the game because it is too easy. Yet the number of rounds being played is falling by about 3% each year. This is where the USGA should be concentrating its efforts, not on correcting problems for the very few that can be easily solved in another way.

Amen Brother Thomas.  I strongly believe that 99% of the so-called issues we face in the game today don't apply to the vast majority of us.  I think the USGA, more so than the R&A, are focused hard on the pros and top amateurs.  I don't think 6700 yard courses are becoming obsolete.  I don't think technology is out of control.  I don't think anything should necessarily be reigned in.  They need to quit defining the state of the game based on the 0.001% of players that Frank noted.

I probably won't change my mind until the day I shoot eight under par somewhere.

Yeah.  *fudge* the USGA.  They ain't done *feces* for me.

[edit]  I do dig the notepad, and window sticker they send out each year to entice me to join.  Oh, the notes I've written.  Good times.  Good times.

i don't know,  a hack like me can spin a low skipping 70% Gap Wedge decent enough to get it to stop within 10 feet of its pitch mark...  with off the rack clubheads that probably arent even clean and maintained enough     Grin





but seriously, yeh, this is stupid.
