Ridiculous Question from a Tiger Hater

Is there a penalty at The Masters for disrespecting the course (shouldn’t there be?)?

 

Tiger was in plain view on the 13th tee (I believe) when he took his gum out of his mouth and chucked it in the bush (presumably as we didn’t get to see where it went). 

 

Pretty darn disrespectful to the course, the tournament, the patrons the other players and everyone involved.

 

Regards,

Tusher

Actually, it caught my attention simply b/c the camera was on him. My only passing thought was, "Hey, that's something I would do..."

He threw it back into the bushes. No one would ever notice it was there. Not sure how that's "disrespecting" the course. 

I suppose you could always go down to Georgia and ask the bushes at Augusta National if their feelings were hurt. 😜

Imagine if he went back in there and took a leak! He should be tied to the whipping post!

I like the self-awareness that you realized your question was ridiculous.  Which just makes it that much more puzzling.  If you knew it was ridiculous why post it?

No, @turtleback, I renamed the topic. I think it was originally "2019 Masters Question."

So I gave him too much credit on that whole self awareness thing?  🤷‍♂️

That gum might be worth some serious coin...if you could prove it was genuine.

If gum is that big a problem, its a damn good thing no camera was on me during my last round.

Be a breeze nowadays with DNA testing. Wonder if there's some treasure hunters already on a quest around the 13th tee?

Not sure why my first couple of attempts didn’t go through, sorry if they did somewhere. I’m just not seeing them.  

 

Not it a Tiger hater. 

He has done so much for the game and will probably go down as the greatest golfer of all time.  What’s to hate?

Don't know what trolling is.

I thought this site had more insightful members.

How do I change the title back?

So of the comments I read, I do agree that most people would do something similar, but then again we are not playing for the same stakes (or keeping the same rigour in counting strokes).  

As far as the comment about it doesn’t matter because nobody saw it anyway....wow.  So it would be ok for him to give it the old ‘handwedge’ from the other side of the bushes because nobody else could see over there?  Integrity.

You can't. Your original title was horrible. "2019 Masters Question"? C'mon.

Let me answer your question, silly as it is:

  • It's not "disrespecting the course" to throw your gum into a bush.
  • It's not a penalty of any kind.

Not even remotely the same thing at all.


Your question is simply ridiculous.

Your question is simply ridiculous.

 

I’d like to bring you back to a time when a player put down a towel because he had to play his ball from under a tree and didn’t want to get his pants dirty.  I believe he was disqualified because he didn’t realize that the towel meant he ‘improved’ his lie and signed an incorrect card.

Basically.....rules are rules and I was just curious. There are so many outdated and odd rules.  Not everyone is aware of every rule and this could have been one ....

You seriously don’t think that littering is disrespecting the course?  I think you are just pulling my leg now.  What do you think would happen if a member at Augusta National threw a wad of napkins (don’t worry, they’re biodegradable) on the first tee?  My guess is that you would feel that wouldn’t be acceptable because it’s in plain sight.  

Sounds like optics are more important than integrity.
