To your point about the equipment being too strong for the pros. The USGA should make the pros use equipment that doesnt go as far, just as MLB uses wooden bats. Keeps it fun for those up and coming, and challenges the best in the game properly.

Yer boýs took a hell of a beating. Ye ve been building up all year for a joyous victory. And got whipped! Time ye faced up that us tour events are set up too easy and that its not about as far as u hit it. Journeymen is an insult. Stop thinking small picture golf. As journalists you should view the europeans with more respect. ye ve won 1 in 5!! .
