George White at The Golf Channel isn't a big fan of flogging and looks at some of Michael Campbell's recent comments on the deregulated power game and the impact it's having.
"It's no fun there. It's just a smash, just a slog. It's a power game. There's no finesse in the game,” [Campbell] says.
Campbell says he isn’t going to be playing professional golf much longer. So, to him personally, it’s really almost a moot point.
“I could retire by seven years' time - so 2012,” he declares. “After that, I don't really care, to be honest.”
That isn’t entirely truthful, to be honest. He cares a lot. But the people who matter don’t. And those people hold the game’s future in their hands.
