No doubt, but that doesn't make the rule fair, just equitable. It is her fault, I wasn't defending her, rather I was taking a shot at the USGA, and having a swipe at IACAS for thinking this local rule is any way normal.
It is clear whoever wrote the local rule does not have a grasp of how golf is played. It is the idea of someone who thinks they know how golf is play. These are the most annoying people in the world, and the USGA has multiple people that fit this description for potential culprits. I can't speak for the LPGA, but it wouldn't surprise me if their diversity initiatives brought inexperience that lead to this disaster. The LPGA is lucky to exist, South Korea's love for women's golf saved it, but I still couldn't tell you how to actually watch the LPGA. It's not marketed well.
