that is a sad state.  I believe 12* max is a rule, or was.  Every LDer should have a 12* club in their bag for just such an occasion.

Yes it can, the LDE set up a grid at Denham Golf Club in London that at 300 yards laser measured 10 yards longer on the left line than the right ::)

The red line is two yards wide and moves around.  They need to tighten up on the tech behind it.  I've witnessed many six inch rules throughout the years.  You have to realize the original set-up of the grid is crucial.  If your a degree off from square during the set-up the variance on the grid can be substantial.  You can only get so accurate.

Viewers (golfers) don't understand longest drive wins?- Animal

Depends on when you are watching and if you are paying attention.  So, I would think they understand the longest wins but the live telecast does not convey this.  Especially if you don't watch the whole show and you catch a few minutes of it.

It’s false logic to say that wider grids produce less OBs.

80 yard wide grids and 8 balls have produced the age of the “one hit wonders”

The really talented hitters who can control their golf ball and fill up a grid have been driven out of the sport.

Now we are looking at finals competitors who given the task of putting one ball from 8 in the grid over 270 yards, can’t get it done :o

The call will stand because it's not a decision anyone cares about. In NBA one thing that's iffy 1 million people talk about it. On here and facebook 13 people

It was stated somewhere that 6.4 million viewers were tuning in.  Only 13 noticed it?  Come on George, basketball is easy to call and long drive is complicated.  Viewers just don't understand how it works.  In basketball all you have to do is throw it through the hoop.  If the net moves it is good for points.  In long drive they ACTUALLY measure things, so it can get interesting and alot of gray area on how it is measured.  Maybe they should use Trackman to measure it instead of people with measuring tapes.  You know, eliminate the human error. :o

Yes Dave and on a duck hook the pro tracer line looks particularly bad :P

Fair play to Mark Costello though for winning and proving one of my favorite mantras ... "it only takes one"

Mark wasn't even close to sniffing the grid on his first 7 balls, I was surprised by his last ball and Steenberg must have been astonished!
