The PGA Tour had to make certain moves to 'fight' LIV Golf and save individuals on their Tour. Some of the novelties will be the addition of designated events. Aside from it; no-cut, limited field should be a novelty from 2024.

Jack Nicklaus, the man who marked an era of the golf scene, commented on the changes that could follow. “I don't care either way. Obviously from our standpoint here it's a heck of a lot easier to take care of 70 or 80 players, whatever it might be, than it is 120.

But I liked the cut before because we felt like having people play all day was nice to have on the golf course, giving some young guys an opportunity to play that might not otherwise get a chance to play”. - Nicklaus said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Golf Ball Rollback Plans

As a result of the Golf Ball Rollback Plans, a lot of reactions have been generated from golfers and golf fans alike.

There are many people who are opposed to such changes, and believe they will not be helpful to golf in the long run. In spite of this, there has been a steady increase in the number of people who support such ideas and believe that they can make golf a better game.

“I think that what they're doing with the golf ball, hopefully is a good start. It's going to probably pull the ball back 14, 15 yards for you know, a McIlroy or a [Justin] Thomas or one of those guys, and maybe 10 or 12 yards for maybe the average pro.

To me, the game of golf, if you're going to play tournament golf, you really want to test the golfer. That's theoretically what the tournament's all about. And if everybody's playing a driver and a wedge every hole, they never play anymore to a 6- or 7-iron, 5-iron on a par-5. You lose your ability to be able to test your skills”.
