The Changing State of Golf

  |   Newsletter

Greetings Golfers,

This past week, I read two very interesting articles in golf magazines. I have the links right here:

The first one is a link to a GOLF DIGEST article called:

9 Things That Have to Change in Golf. When I first saw the headline, I figured that I wouldn’t agree with most of the 9 things. Wrong. I think that I agree with all 9. Some I don’t really care about, but some I’m pretty passionate about.

The second link is to an article in GOLF WRX. It’s written by a guy who grew up in Bloomington. Looking at his name – Laz Versalles – he must be related to former Twins’ shortstop Zoilo Versalles. Laz conducts a test where he plays with a set of clubs similar to what he had 30 years ago … against the set he uses now. I think you’ll get a kick out of it.

Both articles are about the present state of golf. As you’ll see … some things are better, and some things need changing.
