Wow bad shot followed by bad break for Rickie. If he walks away with 8 it will be amazing. 

Wow so it turned out to be a 7! I wasn’t sure on that ruling when I first heard it.

I am confused.  That is absurd.  This game is hard.

If I read the rules correctly, if a ball at rest moves while on the green it's placed back in its original position. If it moves while off the green, it's played from its new position. (Which is why Ricky lost a stroke for having to take it out of the water again.)  So my question to the rules gurus: What's the rationale for the rule being different depending on whether on the green or not?

Only if it's been marked/lifted.

You'd have to ask the USGA/R&A, but I assume that it has to do with the fact that the lie of the ball is "known" on the putting green, but couldn't reliably be re-created off the putting green (particularly since the ball apparently moved pretty easily).

I can't understand why I keep rooting for Sunday Rickie, but I can't help myself. I wait all day for the inevitable disaster, then when it happens I feel bad for him. Oh well, here we go again, LOL. Lets see if he can snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat!

Ah, that's right. The rule makes sense then - if your ball is in a precarious position, better hurry up and mark it if on the green, or hit it if not (since you can't mark off the green).

Much better attitude than Sergio!   He is showing character with this meltdown.

I agree 100% his attitude is way better then Sergio's. That said, my two favorite golfers are Sergio and Poulter. (I know, I know, LOL). I'm thinking the fire those guys have inside them might be the one thing Fowler is lacking.

You can get an idea of each tournament's distinct flavor by searching for its hashtag or name on social media. Most tournaments, you get golf action, or something related to golf. For this tournament, on Instagram, most hits are not yielding golf, but like a sorority fraternity look at me drink fest get together. Which we all know it is, but man, it is so babe and dudebook. Get off my lawn!

    • As to the milling being cheaper than inserts I'm going to have to politely disagree there too. AFAIK cheapest inserts are much much much cheaper in production than cheapest milling. You have to factor in the cost of milling tools and their maintenance. A cast clubhead requires zero tools to insert. One human can probably do 400-500 inserts in a day, and the materials are super cheap. Milling requires a mill. And bits. And programs. And people who keep those things running. As far as I know the costs are not comparable at all, and that accounts for why all the cheap clubs at Walmart have inserts while the buying trend is milled. Golf Spy did a piece on this but suffice to say I can't agree with that statement but i respect your opinion. Cheers. 🙂   The TRUE Cost of Making a Putter Manufacturers throw around plenty of buzzwords to justify higher costs, but what does it really cost to make a putter? The answer may surprise you.  
    • Perhaps he was too weak to lift the club after "blasting" that drive...
    • And just to insert a quick reality check here cheapest putter at Walmart is $60 USD and as I mentioned is neither milled, stamped, nor Winn gripped.  Cheers. 🙂 Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 | Walmart Canada Buy Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 from Walmart Canada.

Anyhow I appreciate your feedback, noted. Cheers.
    • You're the second person in the past two minutes to say that, and like the other, I didn't miss the point. Patent pending means almost nothing. It doesn't mean they've been granted a patent. It costs very, very little to submit a patent application. Nobody's said "cheap as possible." Except you just now, and me in quoting it right here. The grip may be an aftermarket grip. Dude, it's not an expensive putter. If you can get $10 or $15 for it, go for it. That's my recommendation. It's a flat piece of metal on the end of a stick. I could make a putter that "rolls" things perfectly well enough for $4 in parts from Lowe's and a putter shaft. Hell, a hammer could "roll" it well. You're missing the points: The putter is nothing special. It's not worth much $. It's probably from some overseas, cheap, Chinese type place with no actual web presence or any sort of actual company. If it was a known company, Google would have some information on it. The lack of anything on it is a big key bit of information that you're ignoring.
    • Totally different logo, not the same Red Zone. I googled first, deduced the ones you mentioned were not a match, then came here. You missed the point. I do not see "patent pending" on hosels. I handle lots of putters. I can't explain it's presence to you obviously as I have yet to determine the origin of the putter but anyone who makes clubs knows that stamping the hosel is a step you would never make if you were making "cheap as possible" clubs. Again, no one said it's an expensive club but definitely was not made as cheaply as possible. Walmart's cheapest clubs do not have Winn Pistol grips, you can confirm that easily.   I just want to find out who this company was and this putter if I can, if I can't it's not really something I want to defend to someone who's never touched it. But I appreciate the feedback. It's definitely not manufactured to the cheapest standards, nor does it feel cheap. The roll is on par with more expensive clubs and nothing like the myriad $10 clubs here. Cheers.
