This Makes Sense...

The USGA has announced that you can locally qualify for the 2010 US Open with old grooves, then will have to switch if you make it to sectionals.
Sure- why not? Nothing like having a set of rules... and then slowly changing all of them. By the time 2010 rolls around- they'll probably be talking about allowing my favorite club, the Hand Wedge.

I prefer the foot wedge. Must more consistent and infinitely less obvious.

I have an adidas wedge and a nike wedge. I usually play whichever one matches my hat and belt that day.
On a serious note, why can't they just change the rules all at once? If you're going to outlaw sharp edged grooves, then do it like taking off a bandaid. The way they are doing it now, it's way confusing.
All that being said, this doesn't really affect the average guy like me anyways, because I don't see myself with my 17 handicap trying to qualify for any USGA events.
