    I see this as a professional golf problem. This is a non-issue for 98% (totally made up number but it has to be extremely high) of amateur golfers. The same technology advancements that are threatening the pro game are making golf more enjoyable for most amateurs.

    The professional tours, not the R&A and USGA, need the ability to implement their own rules. A standard less distance ball required on tour would solve alot of the problems you identify. This would be very similar to wood bats only in professional baseball.

      Yes well said Scott,

      A separate set of rules would probably be the ideal solution. Whether this happens or not is another thing but hopefully the powers in charge will do something about it.

    I agree! Technology has changed golf over the past 25 years. It is making the game easier to play, but harder for courses to keep up with the changes because it is expensive to make changes to the course that only pros will likely use.

    A point to ponder is that the new technology has not really improved equipment that much in the last 5 years, but he business side has changed it significantly. Social media, email, blogs, etc has allowed the business to change the face of golf. It becomes about making money and repackaging than actually helping players improve their game.

      Good point Jim,

      I guess the question is when will it stop? Are we ever going to come to a point where there is a limit on how far technology can take us. I think it has to stop somewhere or as you say the golf courses won’t be able to keep up.
