So it's not surprising that some ball golfers are not able to think outside their box.

I just explained the Bunc'r rule to an avid golfer....he just laughed, about spewing milk out his nose. That was funny, slighlty embarrassing, but funny.

DGs tournament base is not eroding but exploding, just not at the pro level. Tournament sanctioning has increased at a higher percentage rate than membership growth this year. That's not including the sanctioned league program which has blown past 100 so far and may get close to 10% of all events by yearend.
