I may disagree with them, but I do think their opinion matters more than the average person or even the average golfer.
A different perspective. Pretty strong stuff from an industry big hitter!
I read the entire thing and the only reason he offered for the USGA becoming "obsolete" in 10 years is a subjective one about them being on the "outside". His earlier reasoning about why the ruling is wrong is just another straw-man argument that has been debunked over and over. There is really nothing strong about that interview and the guy comes off as hurting his credibility on the subject because the rest of it is speculation based on uncertainty and fear, straight out of a political strategists playbook.
All I see from that is that he wants to be the dictator instead of the dictated, and that desire is as usual driven by the bottom line. He's a businessman, and just like Solheim, that prevents him from seeing any other viewpoint. He's after the unlimited right to destroy the game of golf by putting out virtually any equipment he wants to without restrictions. He says it's for the player, but the reality is that he can't see anything past the dollar signs in his eyes.
