The USGA has become a complete farce. They now need 300 yard par3's and greens so fast that there is no friction on them whatsoever to prevent unexplainable ball movement, to preserve "par."
What occurred yesterday is just one more example of an organization's incompetency. In 2014, in a cost-saving effort - they came up with the ingenious idea to have both the men and women play Pinehurst back-to-back weeks, giving the perceived "leftovers" and worn course conditions to the women, knowing full well that there was absolutely no equity in that decision.
The following year they conduct the Broccoli Greens Open at Chambers Bay, which was as absolute disaster that was salvaged only because of a climactic finish by DJ and Spieth. Worst course conditions going all the way back to the 1940's... how's that for Turf Grass research?! What a joke.
And, of course, the debacle that happened yesterday at Oakmont. WTF is the USGA doing? Better question - WTF are those of you who are still members doing still supporting them? Imagine telling Lebron James last night, 4th quarter against the Warriors in game 7 - "Lebron, we don't know what your team's score is, but we'll let you know when the game is over."
And I've not even started on the drunken speech given by the lady USGA President at the end. Seriously? Are you f**king kidding me, USGA? You're in charge of golf?
What a f**king joke!
End your membership today. Please. If you care about the game - take a stand. Otherwise, continue to allow the smug imperialists to drag this game down into the gutter with them.
