Towards the end of last year a long list of non-conforming drivers was published by the Royal and Ancient and the U.S. Golf Association. I don’t know about you, but on reflection, to introduce a ban on so many drivers was a pretty mean thing to do to club golfers around the world. Most of us don’t disagree with the decision to outlaw certain brands and types of drivers for professionals or even the top amateurs involved in representative golf. But surely the average weekend golfer should have been excluded from those it affected.
