  1. The Bogey Philosopher As many of you may now have perceived I have what might in our current era be considered a slightly quirky approach to golf. I golf because I truly enjoy it. A fine walk in the fresh air amongst pleasant surroundings. Fellowship with friends old and new. The opportunity to hone my skills against a well designed course of challenges. I play 30 year old muscleback blades because they were what I played as a young man, and though I don’t swing them as well as back then, I just like their look and feel.

  4. I think you are wrong on both counts. It would be hard to find a sport that has been more embracing of advances in technology in equipment that makes players better. Look at the driving distance change over the last 30 years, for example. There are guys on the Champions tour that hit it longer at age 55 than they ever did at age 30. Tradition did not prevent these things. There have been 2 major equipment rulings over the last 20 or so years, the groove ruling and the anchoring ruling. In both cases the rulings address qualitative aspects of the game, not quantitative aspects. The
