Hard to jus­tify

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

At a time when slow play is a real con­cern, how can the USGA jus­tify mak­ing par-3 holes 300 yards long? I un­der­stand that next year there will be a par 5s in ex­cess of 700 yards.

It ap­pears to me that when there is a drive to speed up the game, the golf­ing au­thor­i­ties seem to be try­ing to put more ob­sta­cles in the way. I think the as­so­ci­a­tions need a re­think. David Ward, Hal­i­fax
