Last week’s GNN Poll asked how readers would rate their compensation from the golf industry over the past few years and the majority (38 per cent) describe it as flat, with another 32 per cent of respondents saying their compensation showed steady improvement, while another 15 per cent said their compensation had decreased. Another 13 per cent said they were significantly down and only two per cent said they’d made significant gains … Part B to that poll is this week’s question that asks about readers’ expectations for this year. You can cast you vote in the GNN Poll on the home page … The Golf Channel reports here that Golf Datatech did a poll of “serious golfers” and discovered that 60 per cent were in favour of the USGA and R&A’s ban on anchored putting. On the other hand, 31 per cent said they would continue to use a long putter and anchored stroke even if the ban takes effect in 2016. Interesting results … Speaking of the ban, USGA executive director Mike Davis will be in San Diego on Tuesday to discuss it with PGA Tour players, according to this story in the Huffington Post, but he won’t be in Orlando, as he was last year, for the PGA Merchandise Show, which gets underway on Thursday. PGA of America president Ted Bishop asked here that the governing bodies of golf reconsider the ruling when it was announced and a survey of its members showed that nearly two-thirds of its members opposed the proposal … PGA of Canada president Gregg Schubert made a similar statement here … The Golf Channel takes a look here at Mike Weir’s 17th consecutive missed cut on the PGA Tour at the Humana Challenge. Weir shot a couple of 67s and did show some positive signs.
