Ban the TPC courses. Star players go to the courses they like, usually ones with history and charm. Just look at what the move from Congressional to the TPC at Avenel did to the Kemper. Adding prestigious courses to the schedule might keep the non-major PGA Tour event from its march to total irrelevance. -- Tom Johansson, Washington
Prohibit the networks from interviewing someone associated with the tournament sponsor, along the lines of "I'm here with Bosco Grimmet, vice president of corporate hospitality for the Inland Widget Company. Bosco, it's been a remarkable week..." They all get asked the same thing, and they all answer the same way. -- Pat, Sherman, Ill.
If I were golf commissioner I would force the US Open and the PGA championship to set up a permanent rotation of locations that her championships would be played on. I would make the British Open stay permanently at St. Andrews. -- Adam, Brevard, N.C.
I would simplify the rules of golf so the average Joe could understand and remember them. The biggest disconnect in Golf is the fact that we have thousands of rules (the rule book is hundreds of pages), yet it's the only sport with no referees. -- Roy Smith, York, Pa.
I would change the rules so a divot is ground under repair. There is nothing more frustrating than crushing a drive down the middle of the fairway and ending up in a hole, while your buddy shanks one off a tree and draws a perfect lie. -- Blake Sheppard, Greensboro, N.C.
No more ball spotters. I don't have one at the muni you described and neither should the pros. Hit a ball into the rough then go find it or take the penalty like the rest of us do. This will definitely take away a large part of the distance advantage and allow accomplished ball strikers to get their fair share of wins. -- John Frailey, Yuba City, Calif.
Here are three changes I definitely would make as golf commissioner:
1. No disqualification for signing an incorrect scorecard. If it is an honest mistake, so be it.
2. No more television replays for a rule infraction. If the infraction is not caught or admitted while in play, so be it. There is nothing worse than viewers calling in and ratting out a player.
3. The Players Championship is the fifth major. -- Tom DeNigris, Colts Neck, N.J.
