Are golf tours too similar?

All 18 holed manicured courses, drenched in water and synthetic fertilizers. Where golfers are allowed to use the same number of clubs and new balls on every tee. Are they really the ultimate test of golf?

How about some variety during the season?

The golf media moaned when Rory lost out to Hamilton for Sports Personality of the year. But could golf learn from Formula One? Race cars are restricted to the amount of fuel they can use and the number of engines during the season.

How about events where pros are restricted to only two golf balls per round? If they smash one out of bounds that only leaves another to complete the meaning holes, meaning different strategies would have to be used.
