Yikes. Tiger might have just hit his first tee shot OB with an iron. They said it's right on the OB line. His provisional wasnt much better but they said his provisional is at least in bounds.

Double bogey right off the bat. That's something I expect me to do.

Yeah.  That's an amateur move.

Glad he birdied 3 in a row to get to one under.

@colin007 - what did you do to deserve this today?

Lol I didn't do nothin'!

Yeah that was just abysmal. I'm more concerned with him hitting the second one on nearly the same terrible line...

Just read - "DeChambeau Intentionally Damages Green in Mexico" it's on a Rich Beem Tweet

Let's see if he gets DQ'ed today....

Check out the background video. That should be DQ.

I hope he does...I understand doing it in the rough, maybe even a fairway, but NOT on a green

I don’t think he should be DQ’d. It was a practice green and he immediately repaired it.

Someone on reddit claimed that was on the practice putting green and not during the actual round

Edit - Yup what @Vinsk said. Bryson also confirmed on instagram that it was on the practice putting green:

Ah, ok. Still, what a bozo. Did you see the video from Genesis with the bunker? That is not a practice bunker.

No I hadn't watched that clip yet. I listened to the NoLayingUp guys talk about it on their most recent podcast but wasn't quite sure what they were referring to.

Ugh...he's such a dick. I don't care how much you "care about playing well", what about other players playing or practicing well on the damaged conditions you just caused?

Sort of OT, but I really wish the PGA Tour would publish fines for stuff like this and slow play. Outside of the most extreme case (Sergio), we see stuff like this and we don't see any consequences. I don't like the example that sets for your average golfer. There are many ways to get out your anger without damaging the course like 6 year old.

I'm assuming Bryson will get fined, and rightfully so. I think slow players do get fined as well. But we don't know about it because the PGA Tour doesn't publish the fines.

    • If the flag had been improperly replaced by the group in front of him, or perhaps even left out and the flag actually assisted in the ball going in would you have NOT counted it? "Assholes in front of me left the flag out... I'm not counting it... bah humbug."  If a putt is rolling toward the edge of the hole and the hole is slightly damaged on that end and the damage helps the ball fall in, do you not count that? If you clearly miss a putt and it hits a spike mark and goes in anyway, do you not count that?  We've all had bad luck when playing golf; a ball that looks destined for the green hits a sprinkler head and bounces over the green into the trap, a putt heading for the heart of the hole hits somebody's sunflower seed husk and is diverted and misses, a beautifully struck tee shot that just catches that one twig and all of a sudden turns into a disaster. It happens. The OP can relish in the fact that he hit a great shot. But he asked the question (I think very wisely) and it looks like its not a hole in one. If you are going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules for this instance, are you also going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules when the outcome favors you as well?  I recently (while playing for an amount of money that mattered) skulled my gap wedge and it flew over the green heading for out of bounds, but it hit one of the white OB stakes and ricocheted back toward me and on to the edge of the green. I was happy to take that bit of luck. It would be wrong of me then to only accept the good luck and not deal with the bad luck. Should we change or ignore the rules and put my ball out of bounds, after all it was a terrible shot? Hitting a terrible shot and getting lucky is no different then hitting a great shot and getting unlucky. We should not change or ignore the rules in either case.   … I mean, really when it all comes down to it, isn't that kind of the point of golf? 
    • Understanding you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Have you contacted GA? Golfaholics Annonymus?
    • It can feel normal because we are used to it, but it never feels natural to me either.
    • Well it is not that easy. She has a legit gripe. I have seven full sets off Hogans and may be 26 loose Hogan irons. However the real problem is that I have an additional six hundred golf clubs and 30 old golf bags that also live in the basement. My addiction to collecting clubs over the years has caught up to me and is affecting her laundry process. And I don't want to be assigned those duties. Cutting down the herd is the way to go
    • 5am wake-up, shower, get ready for hour-long drive to the season's first 7am tee time with buddies I haven't seen in months...walk outside to 15 degree windchill and half an inch of snow.
