No doctored golf balls or Arnie or Monty at The Masters
I agree with the decision of Hootie Ingram not to introduce a doctored golf ball to this year’s Masters. Why single out the tournament to play with golf balls that don’t travel light years, as today’s modern golf balls do? Jack Nicklaus feels the Masters is one of the few places that has the power to introduce the change, since the USGA doesn’t have the guts to do it. Part of golf’s popularity lies in the fact the average hacker uses the same equipment and the same venues as the pros. Nicklaus should get off his high horse. At more than 7,200 yards, Augusta National is long enough.
We all knew Palmer wouldn’t play this year – having had his emotional farewell last year – but some people are upset Colin Montgomerie didn’t get a special invitation. Why? Montgomerie is a favorite of mine, abd the guy is great in Ryder Cups, but he should earn his way to Augusta like everyone else.
