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.

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!

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

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.

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.
