Okay, so I'm watching Golf Channel and maybe it's been going on for a while and I just didn't notice, but I saw an ad for a blatantly illegal product and it kind of surprised me.
The product is called SliceAway and it's a substance you put on the face of your clubs to minimize spin.
Has the Golf Channel been doing this for a while and I just didn't notice before now?
I mean there's not even a disclaimer anywhere in the ad stating it doesn't conform to USGA guidelines.
If it were MY channel, I'd at least require THAT much before putting their ad in the middle of my President's Cup programming.
Seems to me it sets a pretty dangerous precedent if they allow non-conforming products to be advertised like that. We already have confusion about the Rules of Golf in many cases, particularly among people who don't play often or simply don't educate themselves. Do we really need the Golf Channel adding to the confusion?
Just curious what you guys thought. Maybe it's just me. I tend to get ticked off at stupid things (like you didn't already know that).
