Technology in general does that. It's been a problem for a long time. The R&A and USGA can change the rules but within any rules they go to the golf companies will pour money into how to stretch those rules and thereby have an advantage over others and the course. There are many problems in golf, but it's still a fun game 'cause you can get pissed and have fun, like B grade cricket.

Stenson's second shot on the 18th was absolutely ridiculous. One of the finest golf shots I've seen, what a way to end not only Stenson's week, but the Race to Dubai. He's had one hell of a year. Poulter's tee shot on the 17th was pretty tidy too, wasn't too far from taking home that BMW 6 series.

The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
A couple of years ago he attended a meeting of the R & A where Nicklaus and Player argued that ball technology needs to be wound back.
The R & A dismissed them as retirees whose opinions were largely irrelevant
Shortly thereafter, the R & A approved course changes to St. Andrews that were deemed necessary to protect the old girl from being slaughtered by players armed with new technology
just flicked to the golf for 2 minutes, Graeme McDowell hits an eagle on a par 4. Beautiful shot.
Apparently Adam Scott had a 9 on the 12th ffs
Steve Elkington is a classy guy isn't he?
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Brilliant putting performance from Rory to win Oz Open whilst Scott was polar opposite
Latter would've been so far out of sight if he was any better than ordinary with the flat stick that it wasn't funny
Had to listen to this on the radio on the way home to catch the ending and who is doing the commentating!? ****ing Jim Maxwell. Knows even less about golf than he does cricket. Was excruciating, but had to hear who won. I fear I may never wash that voice out of my ears...at least I know who paved the way for all the clueless ****wits masquerading as 'sports commentators' these days though - good ole Jimmy boy.

Haha yeah I was in the same boat had to listen to it in the car. I could barely here him he was whispering so softly. He said he was in amongst the gallery ffs. Could abc not get a media pass? Though having met Sandy Roberts a few times I can barely stand his voice too, so I was happy to not have the tv on.
On a happier note, last year when Scotty lost the Open he rebounded and won the Masters. I'm predicting him to do the same or better and win the US or British Opens this time as well (although it's a different open, he lost it the same way).
