Like: Tom O’Toole ascending to the USGA presidency. Nice to have a leader who has earned his way up the ladder, knows golf thoroughly, isn’t on a power trip, and knows how to smile. I’ll like him even better if he puts in motion a wholesale simplification of the Rules.
Don’t Like: Bill Murray’s absence from Pebble Beach. If the producers of "Monument Men" had any creativity they would’ve exempted Bill from doing press this week and dispatched him to Monterey with instructions to play every round in WW II fatigues and a helmet.
