No Love For USGA News?

Ryan Ballengee comments on the naming of Jim Vernon as USGA President and notes at the end that the only place he's seen any conjecture about the news was on this very web site.

Now, I know it's not as big a news item as say, the Srixon buys Cleveland deal or Ernie Els skipping the Volvo for a big payday elsewhere or even the recent rule of golf tweaks, but still, it seems odd that not one major online golf publication or newspaper picked up the story.

So is this a product of bad press release timing by the USGA, or simply a statement about how irrelevant the golf media thinks the organization has become?
