GREEN MAP BOOKS SHOULD BE BANNED
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.
