Golf News Net Publisher, Broadcaster, and Editor Ryan Ballengee writes this solid article on distance on the PGA Tour. I’ve been agreeing with Ryan for years – we need bifurcation on the Tour.Once you turn pro, grab a persimmon driver and hardwood woods.
I mean really – people are routinely hitting 400+ yard drives now. Normal players just can’t negotiate the 7,600 courses that are being designed…they can’t even come close. We just can’t let the gap between the top and the bottom become a chasm – it makes the game a lot more expensive in so many ways.
