The USGA came to their senses and sent Glen Nager packing. on the subject by Ron Sirak details what exactly Glen Nager was trying to pull off (they did some equally excellent reporting in their November issue on how their deal with Fox went down).

Now if they can just get bifurication into the rules (leave the 10-handicappers alone, but have a different set of rules for professionals and elite amateurs) and adopt Jack Nicklaus’ going-on-three-decades idea of a tournament ball (each company can make their own “brand” but it has to conform to tournament specs) we’d be in a much greater place.
