    There’s some pushback happening about the ball hullabaloo.

    Interesting that 17 years ago Hank Khuene had the highest average on the list. How does the tour average growth look from 2003 to now?

    I’d be curious to see how many wins each of those players had that year. Besides Rory and DJ I’d bet they didn’t have any. Maybe Bubba.

    Players have something to say. Including Luke Donald who’s a renowned short hitter

    I’m not sure how to feel on this one. Scores are what they are, these guys are good-like really good.

    Sports change, equipment gets better in all sports, players get better.

    I can see the argument that some courses are obsolete, but that being said they are only obsolete if they don’t grow the rough up and narrow the fairways. Harbor Town is still on the schedule and that’s short by modern day standards. I don’t recall the scores being super low there.

    There are other ways to negate distance than simply continually adding length to courses

    I say let the boys play! They're pros, they're supposed to hit it longer than us and score better than us. Penalize them for errant shots, but leave the equipment alone.
