Sorry, guys, but all these stuff about TW, Butch and Hank doesn't mean a bit of golf to me. It's like a love story gone bad, very soapy-Hollywood-ish.
See there is the problem though, this is the stuff the media feeds on. Why, you might ask? Because thats what the current fans of golf want. Although it doesn't matter whether its golf, football, baseball, rich and famous, or table tennis. The "reality tv" syndrome, or the gossip behind the scenes is what is lining the pockets of media companies. So, I don't see it going away anytime soon. Although I completely agree with you.
Some of it is good for the game, most of it IMO is not. However, it is truly everywhere you look these days unfortunately.
