Well, it is on the table for discussion again! That is, addressing the performance of the golf ball. For several years, Jack Nicklaus has said that the golf ball in the way that it is manufactured these days is traveling too far. Tiger Woods has most recently agreed with this as well. 10 or so years ago only a few players were driving it over 300 yards on average and now over 40 players on tour average 300 yards or more. Maybe it is just me but when you combine the efficiency of the golf ball with advancements in club technology and the fitness of today’s players, isn’t it inevitable that the ball will travel further? Still have to put the ball in the hole.
