I might be in the minority here, but I don't think golf courses are long enough, by a lot. I am brand new to the game, having just started 2 months ago, but I can already hit it over 300 on most tee shots I manage to have go straight. I'm young, 27, and a life long ice hockey player. I played junior, college, and semi-pro. I switched sports because I simply cannot play hockey forever and I was interested in Tigers comeback. But after having seen DJ, Rory, et all crush the ball, I was hooked. I wanted to hit it just as far and am working towards that. Golf is no longer a sport for the average body typed individual at the pro level. Legitimate athletes are playing the sport now. There certainly is a distance problem, courses aren't long enough. I would quit immediately if I was forced to use equipment that dampened my athletic ability to perform. Golf is having a hard time attracting individuals like myself and this will only make that worse. I want to see people accomplish inhuman feats when watching sports that's what makes them entertaining. Smashing a ball 400 yards while simultaneously keeping it in play with the goal of the lowest score possible is just that, entertaining. Fitness is a huge part of my life and younger people like me, if I'm given something to hamper that, how is that fair? The ONLY thing I could get behind would be a standardized ball played at all PGA contests. Hockey is highly specialized and personalized with equipment, but everyone still uses the same puck.
