Or maybe cuts back on follow-throughs and thus the most athletic full-force throws, expands the vague "demonstrate balance" rule all over the fairway, and exchanges the easily-discernible "line of play" for a 30x30cm imaginary box that makes it harder to confirm the legal stance.
Yeah, I know it's not a pending issue and perhaps it'll never be more than discussion board chat. I certainly hope not.
