The golf ball rollback plan is still a current topic on the golf scene. In the next few days, these ideas could be implemented. Of course, this immediately caused reactions from golfers and fans of this sport. One of those who reacted was Lee Westwood.

Although many have focused on the golf ball, Westwood believes that the development of drivers is also an important thing. "This distance issue has been a ball and Driver combination. It’s not just the ball. The driver heads got too big and they developed a ball to maximise this and vice versa.

Who knows, we might get back to a place where hitting the driver out the middle is rewarded again”. -Westwood wrote.
Adam Scott also reacted to the current changes in the golf scene. He shared his opinion in an interview with The Smylie Show.

The opinion of Westwood and Scott is similar. “The ball is the ball. The biggest fundamental change in the game since I've been a pro is traditionally the driver has been the hardest club to hit in the bag, and now it's the most forgiving.

That's the biggest evolutionary change in the golf bag to me, out of the equipment."- he said, quoted by golfmonthly.com!

Tiger Woods reacts

Many were waiting for Tiger Woods' opinion on this topic. The great golfer returned after a long break and decided to reveal what he thinks about the current changes.

Woods is a person who believes that bifurcation is the only logical option. "This has been, I guess, the talk ever since I've been out on Tour. And then to finally see it come to this point where I think both governing bodies who control the rules around the world are going to come to a collaborative understanding of how far - we just don't have enough property anymore.

So I think that understanding that yeah, we've been hammering the ball needs to slow down, but it has kept speeding up my entire career, and here we are. As I told you guys, I've always been for bifurcation. I've always said that. Just like wood bats and metal bats."
