The USGA's Mike Whan and Thomas Pagel on Universal Rollback

The USGA and R&A announced today (Wednesday, December 6) that they plan to adjust their testing standards for golf balls, resulting in a small rollback across the game. To discuss this decision, Mike Whan and Thomas Pagel—the USGA’s CEO and Chief Governance Officer, respectively—join Garrett to talk about the governing bodies’ switch from bifurcation to universal rollback, why they expect the impact on average players to be minor, the feedback they’ve received from equipment manufacturers and professional tours, and what they hope the overall effect of the rule change on the game will be.
