I like the way it turned out, but it was unexpected as I thought Anthony had the best game of the bunch in spite of his annoying ways.  But I am pleased to see Jimmy in the finals and I really didn't have a favorite in the other match.
I voted no as I doubt that the definition of "amateur is consistent around the globe.   So, as was true years ago in Basketball, our amateurs would be competing against what would be professionals in this country.
I don't know that I think it would speed things up.  But I don't see any reason to not permit range finders.
$8K probably won't buy a round trip ticket to Turkey. 
While I don't have a problem with permitting laser range finders on the tour I some how doubt it would speed play by an appreciable amount.  As some others have said the distance to the flag is only one consideration of many go into club and shot selection.

I'll say it again.  It is difficult for me to see how anyone who plays the game can argue with the general premise that being longer is better.  I think most are thinking about the driver when they comment on this thread.  But there is a lot more to it than just driving the ball longer because if you're 15% longer than your buddy it is very likely with every club.   Even on an executive course it is an advantage if your hitting wedges to 120 yard greens and your buddy is...
