  1. I'm not saying he knew the exact rule and punishment, but that's quite common. He knew he was breaking a rule and that he would get some extra shots on that hole.
  2. I don't know if he disregarded the rules. He knew what he did and that he would be penalized for it. He intentionally broke a rule and was awarded penalty shots. The issue as far as I'm concerned is the behaviour in a professional tournament. If a player that's 20 shots off the lead find himself in a lateral hazard and slam the club inside it out of anger and gets a few shots penalty, that's in the same vein I'd say, maybe with the exception of this happening on the green, where Beef is also present and about to hit his putt. Phil's move could have made some impact on Beef's concentration. We've seen players getting angry at the course many times, but usually not in a way that affect their score. I don't put Phil on a blacklist (not that I have one) because of this.

    The interesting part of this Sunday is that distaster is close on every hole, and a player can quickly drop a lot of shots. There will still be wind today.
  4. It was a stupid move, but in the heat of a difficult tournament, he could've done worse. I don't care too much.

    Based on physiological attributes. Everything becomes wrong when a person with the attributes of a man compete with someone with attributes of a female. Men are physically superior and will always have an advantage. Some say it's unfair for a trans male becoming female not being allowed to compete with females, but it's more unfair for the female he/she is competing against. A separate league is a bit much, so maybe let them compete with people of similar number of chromosomes instead. Ie. a trans female competing with men.

    That's a triple and double on the hole ranked 15. He might be heading for an early exit.

    Maybe not. That's a lousy shot from 156 on the fairway.

    Let's see if he can improve on the triple from yesterday.

    He will want to go a few under par today. DJ is looking very good this week.

    Some rain might make it easier to hold greens and go for flags.

    Seems so. Great recover shot.

    He seems eager to give back that shot and then some on 12.

    Did someone in the galleries badmouth the Tiger group since they started pummeling them with balls?

    The scores will probably be lower today, but if the cut line went to +5 yesterday, for it to go to +3 today the field would have to shoot 7 shots better, and that's not happening. If today becomes a day with still struggling players, but less so, maybe a cut line around +8.
