Great articulation of the issues (I wish I had this talent):
-R&A have not managed the equipment issue so they play architects (which they know nothing about) for tournament golf to offset their poor decision making for the past 30 years.
-MacKenzie's writings are more relevant today than when they were written -genius.
-Professional golfers will never speak against the golf ball because they are paid millions by the manufacturers.
-Golfers that speak about allowing the long putter are really just selfish. They are thinking about themselves and not the good of the game, which is the responsibility of the R&A and USGA.
-Hawtree is just a lackey for the R&A and does not even play golf.
-Much more and great listening, but need to get back to work.

Two Things:
St Andrews - Is anyone aware that all Open Championship winners that have won at the Old Course of St Andrews have been established and accepted global golfing champions? Does anyone besides yours truly know that? Not the dandruff laden and sherry sippers of the R&A it seems! Making changes to a course that only seems to allow established champions to win on it is the best argument to not make any renovations/ change in the immediate future.

Putter - Make the putter the shortest of the 14 clubs allowed in the bag for a stipulated round.

Offered for further intelligent comment - for the sake, the fun, the decency of OUR game.

State of the Game Part Two, Tiger Woods Division

"Woods confirmed Saturday at Sherwood Country Club that he personally "bridged the gap,'' to help the World Challenge presented by Northwestern Mutual meet its operating costs. Woods would not verify the seven-figure amount, but the Associated Press reported it to be $4 million"

I wonder how many tourneys Finchem is "subsidizing" under the table to keep sponsors from jumping ship?
