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.

Then, published or not, it’s not effective.

Immediate DQ.  Regardless of circumstances.

Intentionally damaging the corner/edge of a practice putting green and immediately repairing it plus owning up to the mistake on social media and stating that you wont let it happen again does not deserve an immediate DQ IMO.

I disagree. Owning up to and apologizing for stupid behavior does not provide any sort of deterrent effect to these guys.  Nor does a fine.

Right, but I think the public shame part of it could be effective. Not for everybody, because some players with a reputation for it just don't care (Day, Holmes). But it could get some people to speed up.

My men's club started publishing pace of play stats and publicly shaming people for playing slow, and our pace of play improved.

I don't like the example that sets for your average golfer. 

I don’t think it sets any example imo. Either you’re that kind of person/player or you’re not. I don’t think anybody watches that kind of behavior and thinks ‘ I can’t wait to try that when I’m angry.’ There’s a difference between an outburst that’s immediately remedied and prolonged act of poor behavior ( Sergio).

McIlroy making this look like a pitch and putt course. Gets up there and drives the first. Easy birdie. Then gets up there and drives the second. Putting for eagle now. I'm sure DJ will follow suit.

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.

He will be.

You don't know that. You don't know that at all.

For all you know, without the fines, we'd see ten instances of this per week.

He had to know it was gonna yank right when it hit the green, he allowed it the space to roll towards the hole...shivers....

I don't even care if he doesn't make the putt, that shot was worth it

 

 

Ok, I mean, I care. And he missed 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:

It's a good thing the other players don't work as hard as he does or care as much as he does or the PGATour would have to budget big bucks for green repair.  SMH

No, but blaming it on the fact that he works so hard and cares so much might.  LOL

You know how I feel about Tiger...

Regardless of circumstance? Sorry, I can't buy that! People are allowed to get mad when they get screwed on the course. 

However, causing damage is another deal. I think there's a better way by adding strokes to their score. That will cost them plenty of money. Much more than the fines which the PGA Tour is embarrassed to reveal! It's probably like fining us 50 cents! Or make it like technical fouls in the NBA. Get enough of them and you could get DQ'd or hit with so many strokes that it will kill your paycheck.
