I get the cut the rough or grow it angle, but what about places that it is more difficult to do so? Golf is played all around the world on tour and one area will have different growing conditions and abilities vs others. I think there are more complications to that then just saying grow the the rough if there are courses and areas that would struggle to do so without spending stupid amounts on grasses, waters and more. As much as it isn't great, at least the golf ball is universal. While there are guys coming on tour that are faster and longer in the last couple years like a Cameron champ or in the case of Bryson who went all in on distance that probably added to the longer average distance this is kind of Cherry picking data. There are days where some courses are dry and the ball runs out more like we have seen at the genesis that adds to the total distance and will mess with the averages. While that is true that there are different course types and grow areas the PGA tour can easily just raise the mower height, water fairways and not cut the rough as often over the course of a tournament week. And for the new course designs they cna be more creative in their designs to challenge the players and put hazard, bunkers and so on in places where the longer hitters will have to decide how they want to play a hole. This is more of the ruling bodies creating a problem than actually improving the game. And lastly if anyone thinks this won’t have a trickle down effect to the amateur level you will be in for a big surprise Quote Driver: PXG 0811 X+ Proto w/UST Helium 5F4 Wood: TaylorMade M5 5W w/Accra TZ5 +1/2”, TaylorMade Sim 3W w/Aldila rogue white Hybrid: PXG Gen2 22* w/AD hybrid Irons: PXG Gen3 0311T w/Nippon modus 120 Wedges: TaylorMade MG2 50*, Tiger grind 56/60 Putter: Scotty Caemeron Super Rat1 Ball: Titleist Prov1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
