Yikes, I would think the best thing for P Reed to do is nothing.

Also, I didn’t know journalists / analysts couldn’t have opinions. Does he need to preface his takes with-“In my opinion, Reed cheated”?

I'm extremely far from being a Chamblee fan, but this seems egregious to me. f*** Reed.

Patrick Reed, all by himself, may be able to accomplish something bordering on the miraculous here.  He could actually get people to like Brandel Chamblee!  :-D

I keep wanting to give Patrick Reed the benefit of the doubt, but I just cannot anymore. He is a man child, nothing more. His repeated behavior on and off the course just smacks of an immaturity that shouldn't be present in a man turning 30 this year. He reminds me of my children when they were 2 or 3. The pouting, the whining, the cheating, enough is enough. Grow up, take your balls away from that nut job of a wife you have, and start making some mature decisions in your life.

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.

This is absolutely the right way to look at it.  It's extremely annoying to see people called "cheats" when they breach a rule (but take the penalty correctly).

Doesn't seem like it's in his make up to do so. Obviously his sense of entitlement is bigger than Texas, but also thinks playing victim has great merit and the best strategy. Any acknowledgement of poor sportmanship is pandering to the burgeouis. I agree with Chamblee; he seems like the type who are irritated by facts more than anything when they don't work out in their favor.

Except that he had only one or two good Cups. Then again Ian can't play in the Presidents Cup.

He didn’t take the penalty but was only given the penalty because they caught him. Golf is unique in where we are all our own judges. He improved his lie TWICE in rapid succession and didn’t call it on himself. And don’t tell me a professional golfer didn’t notice that his ball now suddenly doesn’t have sand behind it after his two practice backswings...

And don't tell me a tour pro doesn't have such great feel in his hands that he didn't feel the resistance of sweeping away the sand.

And yet he says he didn't notice, and according to Slugger he accepted the strokes when he saw the video.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
