Simplifying The Game

Back when golf was played with feathery balls and wooden shafts, the game was exceedingly difficult yet painfully simple.


Sure, the instruments used for the task of getting around a course were ill suited for the endeavor. But the rules were simple, just 10 of them, and the basic premise of the day was to hit the ball and play it from where it lay.


Maybe it was because expectations were low and previous comebacks disappointed. But Woods, who turned 42 on Dec. 30, tied for ninth at the Hero World Challenge and looked impressive in doing so.


Time, technology and growth changed the game in monumental ways, and along with came an ever-growing rule book that became so big as to be considered backbreaking if carried around.


There were 34 Rules of Golf and hundreds of decisions and good luck figuring out right from wrong if you dove into the practical details of the game and wanted to play by the letter of the law.
