I have said for years that course setup is the answer. And it doesn't have to be egregious or 7,500 yards. Last season five courses on PGA Tour were under 7,000 yards. Excluding majors, eight were 7,500+. The difference in weighted scoring average to par was 15/100ths of a stroke  https://twitter.com/GolfSpyC/status/966430561538576384 
@Golfweek_Dusek Not crying a river for a guy making $4.2 million, plus endorsements. I think that speaks to the fact that guys who don't hit it very far--provided they play other aspects of the game well--can make a very, very good living as a professional golfer and are far from obsolete.
@Golfweek_Dusek Correct--as it should be. They are less skilled so they need to play better. Just as Villanova had to play better to beat a superior Georgetown team in 1985 NCAAs.
Yet in actual scoring average Kuchar was less than a half shot behind DJ. But more to the point, why is this bad? I think everyone would agree Dustin Johnson is a far superior physical athlete than Kuchar. Why shouldn't that be rewarded? #golfisasport  https://twitter.com/Golfweek_Dusek/status/966410579706568704 
@RickSCOREGolf Agreed. Wonderful man, incredible player, but the over-the-top statements aren't productive to having a solid conversation on the topic.
