    What needs to change? The USGA needs to go. This is the body of people who decided square grooves were making the game too easy for 28 million golfers who can hardly hit the ball. Total group of clowns.

    When kids see a bunch of lazy fat middle-aged slobs in baggy shorts and belly flop shirts driving around in the carts all over the golf course drunk and high and being belligerent, not fixing divots nor ballmarks and not raking bunkers, at their locally accessible munis and public golf courses, they would rather not play golf but be at home playing on the internet with other kids
