In a year in which rain has threatened to wash the PGA Tour away, apparently The Masters is facing a flood of its own.
Which is too bad, considering Jack Nicklaus is going to tee it up in what is likely to be his last Masters.
* In another interesting note, the USGA has apparently sent a note to equipment makers suggesting there might be a review of spin rates and moment of inertia. Hard to imagine what the average player makes of all of this, or whether the USGA will actually do anything.
Strikes me that it is time that Augusta National stood up and said enough is enough. There should be a “Masters ball” for the tournament that restricts the flight by altering the spin rate. I doubt it would happen, but Augusta has been known to take a stand in the past.
