Golf has experienced tremendous progress in the last few years. There were a lot of new things and things that those older golf fans weren't used to. The goal of everything was to make golf progress, and this practice continues day by day.
Rory McIlroy, currently one of the best, spoke to the media about the technological progress of golf. The Northern Irish revealed where the greatest changes had taken place; "I would say the aerodynamics of the ball, so the dimple pattern of the ball at that point," McIlroy said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!
"And I would say the use of multi-materials in drivers, so carbon crown, titanium face, carbon face, that I think. The arrow of the golf ball combined with the multi-materials being used in the drivers and the adjustability - I think the adjustability of drivers, I think those are the three biggest things."
Rory McIlroy on the new rules
A few months ago, there was chaos related to a new rule that was supposed to be applied regarding ball distance and the limit of how far it can go.
Rory McIlroy immediately supported such ideas but did not want changes to happen in recreational golf. “I’ve been pretty adamant that I don’t really want the governing bodies to touch the recreational golfer because we need to make this game as not intimidating and as much fun as possible, just to try to keep the participation levels at an all-time high.
So, I’m glad in this new proposal that they haven’t touched the recreational golfer. But for elite level play, I really like it. I really do. I know that’s a really unpopular opinion amongst my peers, but I think it’s going to help identify who the best players are a bit easier.
I think you’re gonna see people with more well-rounded games succeed easier than what the game has become, which is a bit bomb and gouge over these last few years. "
