Furyk: "We have to wait and see what the USGA indeed does"

Ryan Lavner reports from Tucson where he spoke to Policy Board member Jim Furyk about last night's phone call.

Not surprisingly, Furyk was cryptic in his remarks though this made me wonder if the PGA Tour will not be asking for a withdrawal of the proposed ban:

Said Furyk, “We’re not discussing what we’re going to do – if the USGA does this, how are we going to reply; if the USGA does that, and so on. That’s down the road. We have to wait and see what the USGA indeed does do and then we can figure out what our job is at that point. For right now, it was just a real friendly talk getting ideas.”

**In point of fact, the rules-making process is remarkably democratic. There are 5 members of the committee proper drawn from the USGA executive committee. They have no axes to grind. They are influenced and to some extent educated by the USGA staff. Additionally, there are 4 advisory members representing the PGA Tour, the LPGA, the PGA of America and the country's regional golf associations. They matter. I can't conceive of the 5 regular members shoving a rules change down the throats of the advisory people.**

Is the "comments period" simply for show?

Those were very enlightening comments by Jim (or as TW calls him "Jimmy") Furyk. In other words she's tall yet she's short. Yawn.

I'm done watching the PGA Tour. I will watch the US Open and The Open Championship and that's it.

My spidey senses seem to be detecting a hint of resignation in the Against Camp...

...just my imagination?
