Back 9 Report: Making the case against a golf ball rollback


On this week's Back 9 Report, hosts Fred Altvater and Carlos Torres talk through the golf headlines and get ready for the week in golf.

We tackle the question of pros and top amateurs playing a shorter golf ball. Is a shorter golf ball necessary? Golf equipment writer Ed Travis thinks not and gives his reason why.

Plus, Lexi Thompson gags to lose the CME Group Championship, Jon Rahm wraps up a great year with win in Dubai, and Austin Cook gets his first victory at RSM Classic.
