Of course intent is not relevant for purposes of the 2 stroke penalty, but absolutely relevant for the character assassination that some folks are levying.........

As for me, unless there is a PGA Tour rule or by-law that could be applied to result in additional punishment, this is just way, way overblown (and probably the case in any event)......

He broke the rules and received the appropriate penalty....time to move on

I think the bleed over into the President's Cup is kinda overblown...I mean, I get it but it'd be nice to not let that overshadow what this team can do.

Find someone as forgiving to you as much as @chile and @BallStriker are to Patrick Reed 😄

He got penalized. It's done. Move on maybe? 

Got it. Thanks for clearing that up. I will alert Golfchannel immediately 😜

It’s Tuesday after the fact, I think it’s still fair game lol. Plus the guy has a history. Also it’s a golf forum. And I’m just joking around 😂

I think the issue people have with it is not that he broke the rules, but that he is so full of bs in his explanation. from my understanding of the situation he's trying to claim he didnt know he moved the sand.  I realize the home viewer has the advantage of high def television replays, but commmmmmmme on man, how could you not see you clearly moving the sand

That's it exactly.

People will ride for and even defend a player who breaks the rules if they behave properly after the fact. Then again, it's Paterpillar here, so he was doomed from the start.

the team won't - they are pros

(No matter how hard the Golf Channel will try to cash in this by not letting it die)

so in your post - here's one of BallStriker's quotes " He broke the rules and received the appropriate penalty."  Wow, how horribly forgiving can a guy be?

as for chile - the quote you provided was about the President's Cup team, so not even on the topic really

No way. It is the best needling tool the Internationals have at the moment to unsettle the Americans. They gotta milk it atleast through the PC. I can't wait to see what the crowds bring and how thick Reed's skin is.

I think @rehmwa was referring to a @chile quote, not me.

Anyway yea, I'm also interested to see what the Aussie crowds do with this 😄.

And piggy backing on what others have said, coupled with his history and the act itself, it really is about all the stupid ways he's decided to cover this up in the aftermath. And then yesterday, he decides to turn himself into this victim/hero/star-of-his-own-revenge-tragedy by saying that what Cam Smith said about it was "personal." Really?

I mean, I guess he's in Australia at the moment so he can contact Mel Gibson and ask him optimal revenge strategies to use this week. Definitely a solid resource.

Maybe Braveheart revenge will be more effective, I dunno.

But as an American I guess I can do some mental gymnastics and make this personal along with him. Let's teach them internationals some manners, Patrick!!!

The expression on your avatar’s face is dead serious though.😜 I think he’s fair game for the team before the start. They trash talk all the time. Once the tournament starts, it will be all very supportive.

Can't stand this guy. I absolutely believe that he is a cheat. I know when I have done something that breaks the rule and put any penalties neccessary. To believe that he didn't know he was improving his lie, or touching anything is silly. He's a pro with great command over his club, and I'm sure he felt what he was doing, anad since he denied, I would argue that it was intentional. Can't wait until he gets his.

Again, intent has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT

I’m going to disagree just a bit.

Intent has nothing to do with the vast majority of the rules.  This one included.  We all periodically breach rules, and when we do, we accept the penalty for doing so, but we’re not cheating.  
 

cheat does so intentionally hoping to get away with the breach and avoid the penalty.  I genuinely believe that Reed falls into that category.  His only regret is that he got caught.

    • I'm an 18 HCP. My first game, I stopped counting. I went the lesson club fitting route. I'm not overly physically adept. I walk the course but not an athlete. Took it up 8 years ago. My wife and I get out up to 60 times a year. Got the fitted clubs 4 years ago. Loved the experience. Met a great guy. Went back and He fitted and sold me a driver. It took me 2 years after getting fitted to really start to feel the clubs. Last year I picked up a Ping eye 2 iron set for $100. They are 30 years old. I alternate with the modern set. I hit them about the same.  Of course, get a set that is the right size and fit. Meets your "shiny new toy" eye (thats important) and fits your budget...but there's no substitute for lessons and practice...and playing golf on the course.
    • Coorg Golf Links, Bittangala, Coorg, India Course Par 70 Men's Slope 67.3/117 Women's Slope 67.5/119 Championship Tees Hole 1 - Par 4 - 360 yards - SI 9 Straight hole.  Right side and over the back is OB.  Hit across a road which divides the front 9 and back 9.  Immediately across the road is a tank.  There is another tank on the right side.  Carry around 200 and you are over both the tanks.  On the left side of the fairway from 260 to 320 is another tank.  Hit 200 to 250 straight and you are good.  Green is slightly elevated but fairly flat Hole 2 - Par 3 - 149 yards - SI 11 Straight hole.  A tank on the left side till about a 100 yards.  Two bunkers in front and a gap between them.  Green slopes quite a bit Hole 3 - Par 4 - 360 yards - SI 1 About 200 yards straight.  Then a serious climb with a bit of a dogleg right.  The last 150 yards or so easily climbs 25 yards.  Around 230 yards is a road.  All along the right is OB.  Either hit it 200 yards till where it is level and then hit an uphill shot or carry it at least 240-250 and clear the road. A bunker on the left edge of the green.  Fairly small and reasonably level two tier green.  Maybe a difference of a foot or two between the two tiers Hole 4 - Par 3 - 143 yards - SI 13 Straight hole with an OB on the right and a drop off on the left.  The right side is a slope as well, but plants to keep the slope from eroding hold up balls hit there.  There is a bunker on the front right side and the green has a slope with an elevation change of three feet or so. Hole 5 - Par 4 - 305 yards - SI 5 Dog leg left. Hole goes up for 125 yards and then turns left and goes severely downhill (reckon 50 to 75 yards).  On the left side of the fairway is a hazard and on the right side is an OB.  There are some tall trees in the hazard on the left, which makes cutting the dogleg a bit of an issue. Hole 6 - Par 5 - 530 yards - SI 3 Dog leg right.  Hole goes up 250 or so yards (climb of 50 yards or so) and then turns right.  Down hill all the way from there to the green (drop of 100 yards or so.  The entire right side is OB.  About 100 yards short of the green cross the road (same as 3rd hole).  About 50 yards short of the green a tank on the left edge of the fairway.  Green has two bunkers in front.  Behind and right side drops off after the green. Hole 7 - Par 4 - 335 yards - SI 15 Slight dog leg left.  About 200 yards to the left.  Cutting the dogleg is problematic thanks to a tree in the relevant line.  Left downhill slope with trees and a tank.  Right uphill slope with trees.  After that OB onto the road (3rd and 6th hole) and beyond.  Green has two front bunkers. Hole 8 - Par 4 - 295 yards - SI 17 Straight hole.  Water body from 100 to 150 yards.  Two fairway bunkers on either side between between 200 and 250 yards.  Bunkers either side of the green.  Most of the left side of the fairway is wooded rough. Green slopes from back to front. Hole 9 - Par 4 - 365 yards - SI 7 Straight hole.  Tank on left of fairway from 250 to 350 yards.  Two bunkers in front of the green.  Green slopes from right to left.  A couple of yards past the green is OB. Hole 10 - Par 4 - 460 yards - SI 2 Bit of a dogleg left.  Left of the fairway is OB.  About 250 yards from the tee is a fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway.  One the right edge of the fairway are two tanks at 150 and 75 yards.  Left and beyond the green after 5 yards or so is OB.  Two bunkers either side of the front of the green.  Green slopes from front to back. Hole 11 - Par 3 - 160 yards - SI 18 Left of the fairway and behind the green is OB.  One bunker on the front left of the green.  Right of the fairway is a tank.  Green slopes from front to back. Hole 12 - Par 4 - 390 yards - SI 6 Slight dogleg left.  Entire left of fairway is OB.  Turns left around 225 yards.  Two bunkers in front of the green.  Behind the green slopes down and a tank about 5 to 10 yards past.  Green slopes from front to back. Hole 13 - Par 3 - 170 yards - SI 14 Left of the fairway is OB.  A tank stretching all the way till 20 yards before the green.  A bunker on either side of the front of the fairly level green. Hole 14 - Par 5 - 500 yards - SI 10 Dogleg right.  About 275 yards and the fairway turns to the right.  Trees lining the entire right side of the fairway, which makes going left on the fairway, right of the fairway onto the 12th fairway or long enough mandatory if you want to hit the green in two.  Front of the green has two bunkers.  10 yards over the green is a tank. Hole 15 - Par 3 - 170 yards - SI 12 Straight hole with bunkers either side of the green.  A bit of a drop off on the left of the green.  Both sides have some trees though far more on the left. Hole 16 - Par 4 - 360 yards - SI 16 Straight hole with fairway bunkers either side around 200 to 250 yards.  From a hundred or so yards in the fairway rises by about 5 yards and then levels out.  Green has a bunker on either side and drops off every side.  Slopes a bit from back to front. Hole 17 - Par 5 - 560 yards - SI 4 Dogleg right.  Left of fairway for tee shot is OB.  About 275 yards from the tee box is a tank on the right half of the fairway.  After the tank the fairway turns right.  The green has two bunkers in front and about 10 yards behind it is a tank. Hole 18 - Par 4 - 495 yards - SI 8 Almost straight hole.  At the end of the fairwayof about 450 yards, the green is on the left side another 50 yards or so, and raised up by 10 yards or so.  However, it isn't really a dogleg because you can hit the green from almost any point on the fairway.  The green has two bunkers at the right and back. On the left and front, it is a slope.  Back and right long is OB.  One part of the green is quite steep and it is a two tier green.
    • Weight was definitely the most important factor for me when I changed shafts.
    • This is the best ans(w)er. Shafts generally do the same thing, but sometimes they do it different.
    • Day 173 Worked on a transition feel for palmar flexion today. Gave the 7-iron a break and hit 4-iron, 5W, and 3W. Also slowed down back swing a little bit to make sure I can feel the stretch in my right hamstring/glute when turn is complete. Finished with a couple LW full swings, both of which went over the net into oblivion.
