Regarding scoring I would suggest they return to making bunkers true hazards and select courses that reward the best approach shots.

Presented with the option of a rolled-back ball or un-raked bunkers, I think tour pros would take the rollback 20 times out of 10.

I just had an idea... why not just roll back the golf ball dimples?Those little guys are like magic. They allow the ball to spin without affecting the trajectory much, allowing for so much more wiggle room for error. Thinning them would incentivize lower spin shots, which would ultimately shorten ball flight. Barely noticeable modifications of the dimples should require players to focus much more on hitting a more perfect shot.The idea being that you're not intentionally reducing ball flight, you're just requiring much more skill to get the same ball flight. Just a thought.
