Often the results of a tournament are greatly affected by timing. If one has an early starting time, one may benefit from calm winds that pick-up in intensity as the day proceeds. No one expects the early tee times to race around the course so that the following groups can play before the winds increase. "Luck of the draw" means sometimes your starting time is a plus and other times it is a minus.
Now we jump forward to the closing hole of the PGA. Phil Mickelson trails Rory by 2 shots. Arguably, it is going to be harder for Rory to play well in total darkness. Is it right to expect Phil, who still has a chance of catching Rory, to stand aside and help Rory play the hole in better light? Yes, Rory could have said it was too dark and he could come back in the morning. That was his choice. It should have been Phil's choice whether to stand aside and allow Rory to "hit up" twice. My impression was Phil and Rick were told the trailing group was going to "hit up" and it was not their choice.
Allowing a competitor to have a better chance to finish is a sporting gesture. Being forced to allow one's competitor to have a better chance is wrong.
What does everyone else think?
