Jack Nicklaus on changing golf

Jack Nicklaus has said golf needs to change, new golfers are being alienated from the game they see the Pros playing on TV.

I am not sure what message  big Jack is trying to tell us, we know we can not play the game like the Pros of today, hell I can not even play like Jack did way back when. I am a big fan of Jack Nicklaus, watched him thru his whole career, but I knew I would never be able to play like him, even with his bent over and chicken wing address at putting. Read the quotes below and let me know what you think.


Golf legend Jack Nicklaus may be a traditionalist, but he believes the sport is in need of major changes. (Susan Mullane-US PRESSWIRE)

 “I believe that the game of golf needs help,” Nicklaus said. “The game takes too long to play, it’s relatively expensive [and] it’s too difficult. There’s a lot of things that could happen.”
“I think it’s really important that the average golfer relates to the golf pros,” Nicklaus said. “He always wants to be able to play like the pros, and today I don’t think you can.”

“I’ve always believed that the game should be played a certain way and played by the rules and so forth,” Nicklaus said. “That’s just not working anymore.”
Nicklaus said golf balls used since the “Big Dimple” ball, which has a higher trajectory, was introduced by Titleist in the 1970s make it harder for the average golfer to drive the ball like professional golfers do. That, he said, has made people enjoy the game less and lose interest.
“We need to bring people into the game and we need to keep them in the game,” Nicklaus said. “We need to think out of the box.”
