2013 Masters Discussion Thread, Update with Tiger's Illegal Drop (Post #343) - Page 19

post #325 of 1228
What about rule 6-7. (2 stroke penalty for slow play. No mention of just one stroke)

Also. Perhaps fault lies with all the other officials who don't enforce the rules. Perhaps euros actually care about slow play.

Prediction. A slew of penalties in next month or two.

I don't think so . .this article just posted:

http://www.cbssports.com/golf/blog/eye-on-golf/22058460/tianlang-guan-handed-one-stroke-penalty-for-slow-play

 

"Per the PGA Tour, it's the first slow-play penalty assessed since Glen Day was hit in 1995 ... three years before Guan was even born."

 

With all the slow-pokes on tour week in and week out - how on Earth can they justify dusting off the one stroke penalty in this situation? 

 

I am not against the one stroke penalty at all . .in fact, I think they should use it every week .. but this doesn't seem fair.


Furyk deserves one every week.

Worse thing it did nothing to speed him up because for the most part he was done. Just seems like an attack on an easy target.

I think that the rules official wanted to set an example, so he picked on the 8th grader....I'm sure that all the pros will now pick up the pace (sarcasm!)

these players move like molasses - just watched Piercy spend about 5 mins eying a putt on 13 that he missed anyway.


edit: guess they make up for it with 300-yd drives down the middle.

Here it is 6:10 fri evening and what a leader board !!! Hard to tell who will try to separate themselves from the field! Probably will come down to the back 9 on Sunday ! That is just one of the great things about the Masters! I think minus eleven will win it!

bad luck for Tiger........hits the flag on 15, 3rd shot and it ricochets  into the drink.......then follows it up w/ a tight shot,  2-3 footer......awesome.

post #333 of 1228

OMG What a bad break for tiger on an absolutely beautiful shot!

post #334 of 1228

Then he sticks it close. Total badass.

post #335 of 1228

and what a beautiful replayed shot to show composure in the face of bad breaks. To get bogey after a break like that is awesome.

That happened a couple months ago to somebody else in another tournament (for the 2nd time to that particular guy, apparently), and I thought it was the worst golfing break I'd ever seen.  But imagine having it happen in a major?!?

 

Smh, that actually pissed me off.  But he made a good bogey.  That guy has some focus.

Graham DeLaet at Arnie's tournament...Chad Campbell holed his shot for an eagle, then DeLaet makes his birdie

nearly 6 hr round for Tiger Woods' group today according to masters.com broadcaster

The penalty on Guan was ridiculous.  It isn't consistent with what they have done for other players.  If he was on the 6th hole MAYBE...but on the 17th?  Makes no sense based on what they have done in the past.

post #341 of 1228
Not consistent, yes, but still deserved.

I'm still sick about Tigers bad break.
post #342 of 1228

They need to ban that 15th flagstick from Augusta National.  And they better get it off the premises before Colin can get to it.

 

I swear if that was me, I would have dropped so many f-bombs and other foul language that Rick Martin would have passed out.
