Hey guys and gals,
So with all this talk lately of golf roll back I was wonder what your thoughts were? I see Titleist put out a statement that was well written and thought out.
I don't know about you but this would be extremely awful (obviously). Especially for major ball companies like Titleist. I did the Ball Plant 3 and R&D walk through last year and if I was Titleist I'd be extremely p!$$_d. I saw the endless work that goes into the R&D and it was honestly mind blowing (MIND BLOWING IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT). There are no words to describe the testing, thought, trial and error, science and so MANY other factors that I'd never, ever consider that go into producing a ball that goes on the store shelf. I believe that like 100's of ideas they do have, may never see the light of day. Basically the time and money and research that goes into making the #1 ball in golf, then take all those hours, years, etc. and now negate it seems like an absolute kick to the face on the work that companies like Titleist does.
Also golf is HARD. So why punish 99.99% of golfers because some pros hit far? We are the 99.99% that pay greens fees to keep local courses open, we pay for equipment to keep golf shops open. Why punish 99.99% of us.
I hope this never happens, because I believe it could be the final nail in the coffin to growing the game.
What's your thought on this possibly ball roll back?
