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.

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!

    • Going through the list, and happen to find Sand Valley (25th) and Lawsonia (23rd) 🙂 Best public golf courses 2021-22: GOLF's Top 100 Courses You Can Play For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Enjoy!  
    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
    • Yeah, for sure! 🙂I work in Technical Support for a living and deal with end users all day long so I understand the importance of caring for the user and the importance of sharing information in forums like this. They've dropped the ball quite a bit on this one in my eyes, but hopefully they can rebuild that trust back for those of us who are willing to stick through it with them.  I ended up buying Pro with the discount they gave me. Figured why not try it. It's version 3.0. They have a 30 day return policy and if it just ends up being crappy for whatever reason(s), I'll just return it and hope the app gets updated and stick with Live. Plus, I got a buddy who had Classic and I could give him my Live version if all things align how we want them to.
