That's not the problem. The problem is that he is viewing "golf" as the PGA Tour, not the 20,000,000 amateurs that pay green fees at his courses.I think what he is saying and was said earlier in this thread is that courses are not being played the way they were designed to be played. I have no problem with that. I don't think he is jealous of anyone and how far they can hit the ball, he is Jack.
As a course designer this is probably frustrating for him to see. I also don't think that he has the ability to change this just by designing a shorter course. So he goes and builds a 6600 yard course from the tips. Does that mean TM, Nike, Titleist, etc. is going to come out with a ball that goes 80% of the distance of a modern ball? Don't think so. And would anyone buy the ball??
I can understand his frustration, don't think anything is going to change anytime soon, and have no problem with him voicing his opinion.
