USGA Groove Change Question, Vol. 1

So let's just ignore the whole ban-grooves-to-distract-from-distance-issue for a moment and consider that the USGA has come out with this proposed ban on U-grooves to restore skill, and at the same time, in a pathetic pandering to manufacturer marketing departments, announced changes in the rules for adjustable equipment.

(Pathetic pandering: The USGA believes these changes regarding adjustability can help many golfers obtain clubs that are well suited to their needs without causing any harm to the game.)

So the USGA is touting its defense of skill in changing the groove rules, where equipment was overcompensating for a lack of skill, yet bending the rules to help those with less skill by easing the rules on adjustable clubs.
