Glory Days

Alistair Tait of Golfweek has a pen that I like. He is out in Abu Dhabi this week for the European Tour event and of course something that will be watched very closely over the first few weeks is how the new grooves rule will change the game. If any that is. Alistair has spent some time with Paul Lawrie who seems to be dreaming about his once very Glory Days. Paul says he is looking forward to the season and he hopes that things will be more like they used to be. In other words, hitting fairways will once again be important and the ability to control the ball and not just bash it and trust that the spin will make it stop on the green will make certain players return to the lime light.

Is Paul Lawrie right? I am not sure. It would be rather nice if he was though I think as I do think that the one-dimensional golf of the last decade or more could do with a bit of “freshening up”. Returning to what used to be seems to be the flavour at the moment bearing in mind that such as swimming axed their super swim suites. Science is a difficult one to beat though and there could be something new out there already!
