Long and Left

Quote from Jim Furyk in an article about the effect of the groove change. This stood out, exactly what Lag has been saying and one of the reasons why ABS was created.

‘If you think about it, most of the trouble on golf courses, if you hit the ball five yards short of the green, you can usually play. Green is tilted towards you, you usually have an opportunity to get the ball up-and-down, but you start knocking the ball five and ten yards over the greens, it gets very difficult to get the ball up-and-down, and it’s what we’re all afraid of.’

I’m sure Allen Doyle would agree here also being a real strategy player.
