If the recent comments from USGA's Mike Davis has any bearing on the situation, without the concept of bifurcation (that already exists, mind you...) a lot more courses could very well be added to that list.
I am soo over the USGA making decisions based on the the manner in which the top 1% of the elite players playing professionally make the game look so easy.
This is not happening locally. The courses I play aren't adding additional tee boxes to account for the additional length with which the top amateurs and touring professionals are hitting the ball.
I honestly don't care what happens at the professional level. If they feel the need - introduce a lesser-distance ball. But at my level? If you go through with this, USGA, like you have recently with the groove change, the anchored putter, etc... you will have officially run me out of the game.
This is a bunch of bullshit. I play 6400 yard layouts and am in no capacity whatsoever of rendering any of the layouts I play obsolete.
The "caretakers" of the game seemed determined to make the game itself obsolete at the local level. And if you make it obsolete at the local level - the other levels also become obsolete, simply because the people who no longer play the game no longer feel compelled to follow the game at the professional level.
I'm halfway there already. Don't push me over the edge.
