Tiger didn't suggest a drop spot and then ask for feedback. According to the guy walking with the group (Maltbie?), the first thing Tiger did is ask his playing partner if his ball crossed before or after a specific post, and his partner said it crossed after. You could then see him proceed to ask several times for feedback on the spot.

Maybe you are the one who needs to get a life?
Are you really that dense? Tiger clearly made a mistake on the rules at the Masters, because if he intentionally cheated then he would be incredibly dumb (giving you guys a run for your money in that department) for admitting it in the post-round presser.

I watched the aerial view a few times and it still wasn't clear to me where the ball crossed.
Anyway, today was great entertainment. Lingmerth was aggressive and took a lot of risky lines all day, but got away with all of them and ALMOST made the most of his round by tying for the lead late or finishing solo 2nd. Sergio gave everybody exactly what they wanted with a meltdown on the gimmick hole while in contention. Tiger haters and lovers both got what they want: the haters a chance to grasp at straws and call him a cheater, and the fans another remarkable display of great execution, followed by great resolve.
As stupid as it may sound to say, I think he may be playing the best golf of his career. He probably won't win 3 majors this season, but damn if he isn't as consistent in each start.
Can't wait for the US Open!
