My immediate reaction is one of aggravation. I don’t think this happens without all the weight-training bullshite of the past couple of years. The golf industry pushes players to become bodybuilders so the equipment manufacturers can delay the recognition that today’s distance increases come from “improved” clubs and balls, not “more athletic players.” (And who the hell every thought of Arnold Schwarzenegger as an “athlete,” anyway?)
