  1. From R&A rules Q&A about woods, not sure about wedge: Q.The face of my driver has developed a crack through the normal course of play. I want to carry on using the club, but does it conform? A. If the crack is a hairline crack which cannot easily be detected by touch, then it would be regarded as wear rather than damage and, as such, the driver could continue to be used. As soon as the crack becomes more than a hairline crack (e.g. it develops a sharp raised edge, or there is essentially of a hole in the face), it should be regarded as a damaged club which is non-conforming.
  2. Hopefully it makes them better at replacing divots or filling the holes.
  3. All or "nothing", regarding the caddie.
  4. I voted no. And then some OT. On the other hand I would not be unhappy about a rule that would prohibit caddie from stepping on green at all. Players can handle the flagstick as they in 99,99% of golf rounds do anyway. And there is no other role for caddie anymore on green. btw, talking about wasting time and caddie cleaning the ball after "every" putt.
  5. I do not see gamesmanship, I just see confusion. You really think that Pettersen on purpose wanted this to happen? And if someone asks her if the putt was conceded, or if she says it was not conceded then there is not much that can be done.
  6. I would imagine it would be good if it was about same subject, but this was not.

Or perhaps I am lost with the word "despite" in the sentence.
