...Whilst watching the Nedbank challenge on sunday, Darren Clarke was a guest in the comentry box. They got to talking about shot shaping and how the course design made for some great golf because it made players 'make' shots like the old days. Clarke then commented that whilst good course design can play a part in bringing the shot making skills back into the game he said that in his view out lawing square grooves and the re-introduction of V grooves only, will bring shot making back to the Tour. He said accuracy from the tee will be of a premium again as hitting the fairway with 180 to the green will be better than in the rough with 120 left as you won't be able to stop it from the rough like they can at the moment. He also said that the golf ball would change because players will demand a softer ball that will spin more (like a Balata) & distance would be sacrificed to achieve this. He said that the rule will have a "Massive affect on the game" lets wait and see.
