helps with distance and accuracy.
The USGA and the R&A spent "a ton of money" on a distance insight report, instead of investing in the green grass side of the game, and making the game more inclusive. The purpose of the report was to study how far the ball is going (past & present) so they can figure out ways to dial-back how far the ball is going and how hot the club faces are. You can find the report on the USGA's website, and tour players, such as Rory Mcilroy, have had put their two cents into the study.
