    That's why there is so much interest.

    Those are the only kids playing golf besides the ones at the driving range. I grew up in a relatively affluent neighborhood and the high school had a golf team with a grand total of 5 kids. The badminton team had about 30. This being in town of ~30,000 people.

    The TV ratings tell a different story. Where do you think the money these guys make comes from?

    Because in golf you referee yourself.

    Players who get to the touring pro level would have to have gone through years of competition. No way they can get through that if they had ever been caught or even accused of cheating.
    Its a game of homor that all players who compete accept.
    Are there amateurs who cheat? Once in a while. I know a couple. But they are usually exposed and as I said, no one wants to play with them.

    I'm not expecting you to like it. I'm just telling you the way it is. Having "golf referees" would ruin a great game.
