Oh that. I dunno, even Feherty said that tiger had 3 options for a drop there, and one was about 2 yards behind him. I dunno why, I know it was red stakes, but thats what was said before he made the shot.

I've found literally no one else mentioning this. Not on Facebook, Twitter, golf websites...

naww, there is no dq. He was given the option of dropping there by the rules official on the hole. Feherty spoke of his options before he took the second shot, and that was one of them.

No it isn't.

First, it's yellow. I don't know what Feherty is talking about. But let's pretend it is red. You get to:

  • Replay the shot.
  • Drop on the line back from where it last crossed the hazard.
  • Drop within two clublengths.
  • Use a drop zone.

Tiger clearly used the first option. He didn't replay from the original spot. If he had chosen option #2 he'd have had to go well back on the line to the left.

I think there's roughly a 0.2% chance anything happens.

But I'd investigate if I was on the RC.

Eric, given that it seems you're the only person who noticed this and then made other people aware. I'll remind you now that you could be about to become one of the most disliked men in golf if Tiger gets DQ'ed.

Either way it sucks because he either is going to get away with a broken rule or he's going to get DQ'd.

Yeah, I agree, that Eric dude's in for a shitstorm if anyone actually picks this up. ;-)

Rules are rules. What can I say? I think my posts here clearly paint me as NOT a Tiger hater or even a disliker at all. I've been rooting for him since 1996. Or before, since I watched his Am wins. I want him to get to 19. I want to see history made.

But Rules are Rules. Especially at the tournament Mr. Jones started.
