Interesting. I didn't realize players could use practice facilities mid-round. Apparently Overton didn't realize you can use the facilities, but not with the use of training aids, which is expressly written in the rule.
You can always practice putting and chipping on the tees, greens, and practice facilities (the PGA Tour usually has a local rule about not practice putting on the green after holing out, however).
See Note 2 below.
7-2. During Round
A player must not make a practice stroke during play of a hole.
Between the play of two holes a player must not make a practice stroke, except that he may practice putting or chipping on or near:
a. the putting green of the hole last played,
b. any practice putting green, or
Exception: When play has been suspended by the Committee, a player may, prior to resumption of play, practice (a) as provided in this Rule, (b) anywhere other than on the competition course and (c) as otherwise permitted by theCommittee.
PENALTY FOR BREACH OF RULE 7-2:
Match play – Loss of hole; Stroke play – Two strokes.
In the event of a breach between the play of two holes, the penalty applies to the next hole.
(a) practice on or near the putting green of the hole last played, and
(b) rolling a ball on the putting green of the hole last played.
Fantastic ball striking from him today. Missed a few short putts that would have really put him out of reach.
Glad I went with him in my fantasy picks this week.
Boooooooooooooo!!!! Love his swing. I saw it in person once and immediately I was blown away by the rhythm. TV doesn't do him justice. What a sweet swing. Guy peppered the flag stick all day. Someone get this guy a putter he can aim (or teach him green reading... not sure which was the issue... could be a combo of both)!
Scott Stallings' meltdown on 15 was absolutely painful to watch. Boo was striking the ball well and upheld his reputation as a great iron player. I think the thing I enjoyed most was listening to Feherty's post-round interview of Weekley - two great accents going back and forth!
Off topic a little, but how many major meltdowns has Stallings had on Tour? It seems like almost every time he is in contention he finds a way to blow it!!!
