Survival Manifesto

Are there too many rules in golf? Generated by an ever expanding army of blazers who lunch out and devise a few more convoluted rules over a glass of port. Soon it will be called the Encyclopedia rules of golf.

Do any of us amateurs or even the pros know the rules of golf? Lets cut our defence budget and get back to a few simple rules of golf. Play the ball where it lies. Which we can all remember and comprehend.

Why are dress codes for young golfers devised by old men who wear their trousers around their chests? Lets have a flexible dress code where golfers of all ages can wear what they like. Why do we insist that teenage golfers dress to look like their dads or mums? Fashion tastes of young people are only objectionable to old farts. Who probably wore something similar when they were young.

Now that planet Earth is suffocating from uncontrollable made-man emissions. Isn't it about time we started to ask how our golf apparel is made? Synthetic polyester derived from petroleum is a favourite fabric. It's single environmental saving grace is that it can be recycled. So why the heck aren't the big golf brands manufacturing shirts made from recycled polyester?
