The Golf Ball "Problem": PGA Tour Players Hitting it Far is a Problem for All of Golf?

The Golf Ball "Problem"  

162 members have voted

  1. 1. Does the distance modern PGA Tour pros hit the ball pose a problem to golf as a whole?

    • Yes
    • No
  2. 2. What is the main source of the "problem" above?

    • The golf ball goes too far, primarily.
    • Several factors all contribute heavily.
    • I voted "No" above, and I don't think there's really a "problem" right now.

Just schedule the US Open at Erin Hills permanently.  They can make that course 9000 yards long if they want and also be able to hold a million spectators.  Let's take this thing up a notch.  😉

It’s interesting when the fairways roll out a mile. I played a tourney this summer where I was going 2iron wedge into 450yd holes. Make the fairways super soft but still cut short, and I’d have to use driver to get a wedge in. It’s still a lot of fun either way.
