Ok.  Credit where it's due.  I've gotta commend Fox on their camera work following Paulina walking with DJ to the scorer's tent...

Yessir! Pretty sure DJ had no problems signing for a 69.

Diana Murphy sounds like she's on painkillers

Maybe she will mysteriously disappear for 6 months for "personal reasons".

Doesn't matter who you rooted for today when the USGA announced that BS maybe-penalty on the 12th everyone in the USA was rooting for DJ to win by 3.

USGA and pro tour brought all of this trauma on themselves by allowing stuff observed on TV to become situations where penalties can be assessed after play is concluded.

Every sport now has situations on the court or the field that HI-def TV allows to be seen - you have to draw the line someplace and if you have a rules official with each group in the US Open then that persons call should be binding and final on the spot. 

Nobody questioned the ruling that allowed Dustin to drop from the hay into the light rough because of famous "temporary moveable obstruction Oakmont rule" that Ernie Els benefitted from years ago -  that drop may have saved him one or two or more shots at that point in the round and may have made a huge difference at the time.  I liked David Fay's attempt at equality for that ruling by saying that perhaps a player might have a good lie in which case that ruling would hurt them - but of course nobody would be asking for such a ruling if the lie was good (just like having a ball on a cart path that can be easily played from). But we can leave the argument about "line of sight" for another time, particularly if the actual line of play the player might want to take is not on that line of sight.

Maybe she'll injure herself lifting a jet ski …

That's not what happened. He saw it move. This wasn't a call-in situation or an HD situation.
