    This was in the works since 2012 and the USGA just had to wait for this year to put the ban into effect. I think its a good thing.

    As a golf enthusiast, I disagree with this ruling.

    should let amateurs do whatever they want.

    Some pros will sue.

    It's a stupid ruling. Golf is difficult enough as is.
