How long can WGT keep improving their clubs and balls. It seems every new set is a "slight" improvement on the last, every new ball a little more distance and a slower meter.
The more the equipment improves the lower the scores are getting, 54s and 55s rather than the low 60's of a few years ago but more importantly the closer they are clumping together at the top end.
The qualifying round of the US amateur open had about 90 players separated by 2 shots which is inevitable as birdies slowly become the new par. The better the equipment gets the more this will happen, it just makes it harder to separate the players.
Top end clubs and balls mean for the most part we are throwing darts at the pins rather than sometimes deciding to to go for the centre of the green when it's a sucker flag, and I think the game loses something because of this.
I understand WGT can't resist selling ever so slightly better clubs every so often but they really should.
I would reduce the forgiveness of all clubsets across the board by maybe 50%, the best clubs would still be the best clubs, the best players would still be the best players but just maybe a par would be good score again, you know like a par should be and perhaps the odd bogie would be something you could recover from as the scores would on average get a bit higher.
Just some thoughts I've been having about the game for a while.
