3 Minute Search - 33%
Flagstick Left in Hole - 23%
Balled Moved on Green - 6%
|NEXT TWITTER QUESTION |
|With the World Golf Championship being played at 7800 ft in elevation and all the talk about adapting to longer yardages due to thin air, would it be wrong for elite level players to play with a ball that impacts ball flight the other way? |
