The R&A and USGA have fin­ished their dis­cus­sions on The Rules of Golf that will come into ef­fect on Jan­uary 1, 2019. I think their be­hav­iour is, some­what, akin to Zuma talk­ing against cor­rup­tion. Things that should have been banned years ago are green map books (Fe­bru­ary) and align­ment of play­ers by cad­dies on putts and full shots.They are not even con­sid­er­ing that.

In five years a player will send his ro­bot out to play a round for him and he will be watch­ing on TV in a ho­tel room, drink­ing cold beer. He doesn’t need any skill any more. Some­body will pro­gramme the ro­bot to hit per­fect shots. I just won­der whose ro­bot will win. Bye-bye golf.
