Four-time Major champion Ernie Els has weighed in on the distance debate by arguing that course set-up and not equipment changes should be the way forward.
‘Our game is in a good place,’ wrote Els on Twitter.
‘Equipment improvements and distance are here to stay. Full stop.
‘We need a “serious” premium on accuracy. Golf courses don’t need to be longer. Make the Tour rough knee-high, fairways fast and firm which is fair for all players.’
