How bout the Tiger Brouhaha?

Golf rules are fucked. I can see him getting the DQ, because he clearly should have known he was breaking the rules at the time of the infraction. But he wouldn't get the DQ because he broke the rules. He would get a DQ because he didn't assess the penalty soon enou and turned in a card with the wrong score.

BUT, the PGA apparently reviewed it while he was on the 18th and told him he was in the clear. But went back AFTER the round to assess the penalty, thus making his card wrong and worthy of the DQ.

Personally, I get where the DQ croud is coming from, but I think with all of the info you have to let him play. I wouldn't be surprised if he withdraws, though, if there is a big enough uproar.

Which means I wouldn't have to bother watching anymore.

Five hours of golf rules discussion on the Golf Channel this morning. Didn't see a single shot televised.

I know Golf Channel may not have the rights, but can't you watch the early rounds somewhere other than on line instead of hearing about that the entire morning?

Between this and the penalty on the 14 yr old I've about had it already.

And when a will a white guy be penalized for something!!!!!

Well, I'm going tomorrow, third time. First two were for practice rounds (lived there for a couple of years).

The only thing that would be more enjoyable than watching Tiger suck is if he suddenly announced his retirement.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.
