USGA Seeking Feedback on Distance "Issue"

Is there a certain “max” distance the USGA finds acceptable?

im with everyone else that it’s not us that’s out driving the courses we play. Couldn’t the usga/pga just cut the fairway grass a little taller?  The couple tourneys I’ve been to their fairways look shorter and harder than the greens at my course.( I’m being a little sarcastic but not much)

Or for pros just go the nascar route of restrictor plates and dial the professional COR allowances back a little, like .815 or .800

seems like it could be a fairly simple fix for the small group of elite they are worried about.

Many of us do not want bifurcation either.

Gotcha. It is nice knowing we are using exactly(for the most part) what they are using. Kind of a cool measuring point of skill level.

I could care less about how far the pros hit the ball.

I care a lot about how far I hit the ball. I like getting to the green with a driver and an iron on a 400-yard hole rather than a driver and a 3-wood, which is what it took me 40 years ago.
