We're -- that about a broader golf industry question.
The industry over bill.
In the past few years are really too many courses out there for the players -- there's a lot of conversation I wonder how you come down on -- -- -- the rules should be changed to encourage younger players to encourage women to get out there -- like lots -- conversation about whether golf should change to expand its appeal.
Do you agree.

We want to -- to grow and what we're seeing is the other way around people are not playing the game and -- anymore for a lot of reasons one is.
Takes so long now one is to -- -- you know too expensive than it's no access to not courses and I think what we can really make a difference is what you mentioned kids.
I think in the game on the office is incredible learning lesson from life and then get the women involved -- -- families and modest negative family sports so.
-- a lot of ideas on the table that people suggest as far as speeding up the game.
I doing more things that the country clubs opening not clubs and not just be so private I think a lot of things we can do but you're right we have to think out of the box and make a change.
