Oh I agree. I’m just saying it’s two holes to go. Hit them with the fine and tell them afterwards they’re ridiculous and never do it again. But let them play out the two holes.

They did. They were fined afterward.

Yes. I’m saying it’s not really worth it to put them on the clock for the last two holes of a major.

Except it is.

Because the fairest rules are applied that way.

Agree. A rule is a rule and should be applied regardless of circumstance.

But you know they will. They won’t change until something severe enough gets their attention.

I get it, but why wouldn’t they hit her with a penalty on the course rather than a fine after the round? 

Probably because they aren't ready to alter the outcome of a tournament, especially a major, with a ruling like that.  Admittedly Lexi still managed to lose, but if they had given her a stroke penalty, people would have said she lost because of that

What's in the bag

  • Taylor Made r5 dual Draw 9.5* (stiff)
  • Taylor Made Rescue 2H (stiff)
  • Cobra Baffler 4H (stiff)
  • Taylor Made RAC OS 6-9,P,S (regular)
  • Golden Bear LD5.0 60* (regular)
  • Aidia Z-009 Putter
  • Inesis Soft 500 golf ball

The rule is pretty clear for LPGA, the application not so much. The penalty would only have been fair at that point if it was applied to all violators the same way.

And LPGA made the best decision for their associations image in not applying penalties. The backlash would have been incredible. Reasonable leadership know you don’t go nuclear like that on a major stage when you are trying to grow your product.

The LPGA has been more progressive than PGA Tour in dealing with slow play anyways.
