I also think they can easily get half that via other way less impactful changes. Oh well, pass the popcorn and please top off my Big Gulp , Something that Mike Whan said that stuck out to me was this. Driving distance on average increases about 1 yard per year. So this could help for the next 15 or so years. Potentially more. The other thing he mentioned was they could easily have made these changes less impactful, but in a sense this is a potential ripping of the band aid. Doing something less impactful would mean more changes like this 3 or 4 years down the road and then again another 3 or 4 after that. So this while a larger scale change should help lessen the need for that and allow golfers a longer period to get use to these changes and be able to learn how to play under them. Again I dunno, F1 cars change year over year with new regs ever so often and they make it work. It is hard to compare sport to sport because they are all so different though. For reference they did also look at reducing the impact of drivers and making them harder to hit etc, but the grading for that would have made them super small and that would have resulted in needing to then look at fairways and even hybrids so they axed that for now pretty quick. I appreciate the answers he gave, I appreciate the insight behind all of this and while I am sure there are other things that could be done or varying methods to reducing the impact on distance I don't see this as being deal breaking or something that will be awful for the sport long term. Again just my thoughts. I know I seem to be on one side and many others on the other and again enjoy hearing those thoughts and discussion points. I don't know everything by any means and with each post learn a little bit more which helps solidify my feelings towards it one way or another.
