For those citing golfers known as ADHD , besides Bubba Watson, another major winner with ADHD was Payne Stewart. Fwiw I believe professional golfers with OCD would be more common than ADHD . Slow play and complicated pre shot routines could have at least occasionally be reflections of OCD. I doubt the correlation is that strong, as there are way less people with the disorder than the number of golfers exhibiting those behaviors.
I doubt there are rules against them, unless they are self propelled. There are times they are inconvenient, caddies bring tour bags very close to the tees and greens. They can be a pain where big side hills are encountered. A few of the players are using mid sized bags with legs instead of traditional tour bags. Really with the improved durability and efficiency of modern bags it is hard to justify traditional tour bags.
I prefer courses / holes where if you are willing to take on risk, bunkers, ob, water your chances of birdie increase. If you choose a conservative play then you are playing for a par. Courses relying on length as a primary defense, more common all the time, are boring. Courses / holes with only one way to play a hole and little strategy or thinking needed are ego trips by the designer and should be blown up. The emphasis on length is ruining golf, pretty soon no one over...
For the people who actually attend the tournament it makes a big difference. You have a larger time window for attendance, people are likely to stay longer (more refreshment sales etc). The jam up of people following Tiger and the leaders is reduced with more personal favorites on the course etc. In short except for TV there is little advantage. TV money for non majors is much less, sponsors, pro ams, ticket sales, refreshments and trinkets are just as or more important...
Driver, it's mostly mental though, I hit it fine on the range but tense up on the course.
What this suit proves is that a proud but poorly educated golfer had his feelings hurt. Unfortunately his attorneys wouldn't tell him no or he insisted and they are willing to take his money. The tour might actually settle for a nominal amount just to avoid further publicity.
Bullied? Any other conspiracy theories we are missing out on?
Ok, clear rules violation. I think Tiger because he was angry failed to think clearly. Officials reviewed, found no violation initially, based on post round statements realized 2 shot penalty applied. It really comes down whether this was discussed with Tiger before he signed. If it was then decision was revisited later 2 shots is correct. If there was no discussion and committee response was based on post round comments then it was his responsibility and he should dq...

You didn't notice I said in a formal debate? A forum is a conversation without the conventions needed for formal debate, including a formal premise. Beyond that inductive reasoning at best could be applied. It never fails some blowhard knno it all responds assuming every one else is an idiot. It was an ironic statement, jeez.
