Clinton: At any course on a given Saturday morning, how many people play strictly by the Rules of Golf or even care? The difference in the spin between the old and new grooves—maybe 100 rpm—is something the average player would never notice.
Van Sickle: Give me one reason to be excited about 2011.
Clinton: Every golfer loves ripping a big drive. It's what keeps them coming back, and there are a lot of new drivers coming out—the TaylorMade R11, the lightweight Cleveland driver, the Titleist 910. Adams, Callaway, Mizuno and Ping always bring out good stuff too. So this should be a good year.
Last: We have a wave of foreign players who have reached parity with our American stars, there are good young players, and if Mr. Woods is back in form, that spells excitement.
Garbedian: Watching golf on TV from the West Coast between snow-shoveling sessions means another exciting season is on the way.
Stine: The economy is going to get better, and I hope to play more.
Van Sickle: We're going to play the best golf of our lives this year, right?
Stine: I don't know about that. I just hope it's the most golf I've ever played.
Van Sickle: Gentlemen, I think we have a winner.
