    The sport has seen 5 million leave the game within the last 5 years and expect another 5 mil in the next five years.

    Slow play is the major reason....and that golf is very difficult to play

    This is the solution from TaylorMade....and over 100 golf course plan to implement the new cups this year


    To speed up play I'm all for it

    So by making it easier for birdies/pars it will help grow the game?

    Why not reduce every hole by 100 yards then?

    Well, golf had a big boon period when Tiger was on top of the world. It was bound to fall off when he started sucking.

    Wonder if something happened, say 5 years ago. Where something financially happened which might affect an expensive sport like golf, and as a result people are not going as much. :bigthink

    Golf has become too expensive but no... let's save a shot or two by having a bigger hole to aim at.

    I wonder if they will make it like the mini-putt, as soon as the ball gets close it rolls around the hole until it goes in. :bigthink

    How about having less people on the course at the same time? One less foursome per hour or something.

    But that will affect the pockets so of course they won't do that.
