If so, what does that actually tell us about the importance of Scottish Golf to the majority of clubs? They’re just not interested in anything other than their own existence and, in truth, can they really be blamed for that?
Here’s something else to chew on, having been suggested by someone who works in the game. “Is it ridiculous to see a future with more than one governing body?” he asked. “One for old-school blazers and another with a more modern approach?”
That would surely be a last resort, but there’s certainly an unedifyng divide right now in Scottish Golf.
