    I guess Na deserves the dog house for making up rules. But DJ must have his own wing at this point.

    This match really gets me thinking how different top tour golf would be if golf was mostly match play and mostly not on bombers paradises?

    Golf was originally supposed to be played match play mostly until some tv suits decided otherwise.

    It was also intended to be played in tough wind and danger riddled courses. It the star bombers have lobbied all that away.

    At the most basic level stroke play is a good representation of Who’s the biggest kid and can whack a ball around a little better.

    But match play tests all those intangibles that make golf the greatest game in the world.

    While DJ has had great success in match play he has also struggled as it also asks for a lot of things he isn’t the best at; the kind of things that imo are what makes a great golfer: grittiness, clutch, smarts, etc.

    Golf needs less bombers paradises but we really need more match play to identify great clutch golfing.

    Anyhow; Na and DJ should hang in DJs wing of the doghouse because the main hall should be crowded with pga tour rules officials. It’s getting kind of ridiculous really; all they seem to care about is ‘clarify the situation’ so they have to do nothing. That’s their big thing is doing nothing.

    Like Dj Rules officials should have their own wing as well.
