Top 3 Golf Reads // 2.5.2020

Opening Shot

Plenty to digest from the USGA and R&A's Distance Report, but I would be surprised if any rollback were to effect equipment for recreational golfers. Whether you think distance is hurting the pro game or not, technology is crucial to the enjoyment of recreational golfers.

Also, why not experiment with harsher course conditions on the PGA Tour? Higher rough for starters will help stop the mindless bomb and gauge mentality currently thriving in the pro game.
