  1. Neither would Phil being DQ’d.
  2. Well as Phil would say, ‘Toughen up.’
  3. Because Phil didn’t own up to that which is exactly what it was. He was smug in saying ‘knowing the rules is an advantage.’ Well if he knew the rules he would’ve let the ball roll out and take an unplayable. Instead he purposefully broke a rule out of frustration. Had he said what @iacas wrote it would’ve saved a lot more face. The action he did was a mistake. But how it was handled, like Lexi is what’s lousy.

    They actually mic the cups inside

    Except Poulter. He’s just a douche.
  6. But that’s exactly what he did. He deflected the ball back up to the hole while it was moving to gain a better lie. He even said himself, ‘I tried to hit the ball back towards the hole so it wouldn’t roll back down behind the bunker leaving me no shot.’

    Well maybe if today was the final round I could see your point. Berger and Finau are tied for the lead. They still have to play another round and if one of them wins (playing the same conditions as the other leaders) then so be it right?

    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    Confidence. By far.

    USGA went by rule 14-5. Funny how after saying ‘Phil made a stroke at the ball, he didn’t stop it or deflect it.’ Reporter then asks, ‘ What would a deflection have looked like?’

    Didn’t Daly just walk off? I don’t remember if he was DQ’d.

    All that aside...imagine the crowd if Poulter did that! Phils stunt I mean.

    It’s exadtly the same. Sergio avoids water and Phil avoids rolling off the green to what he deemed as ‘no shot.’ Both ‘stroke’ the ball back towards the hole.

    Like when DJ dropped his F bomb? Lol.

    So if Sergio had ran to his ball (Masters) and hit it back towards the hole before it could roll into the creek...that’d be fine? And Phil said, ‘ I went to hit the ball back towards the hole because I knew it would end up back behind the bunker with no shot.’ Youre giving a lot of slack there @Shorty.

    “This is where golf gets into the weeds and the USGA’s ruling is … curious: The USGA determined Mickelson “made a stroke at a moving ball,” but did not purposefully deflect or stop it. Had he done the latter he would have been disqualified.” He hit a moving ball back the other direction. He ‘deflected’ it from going off the green. Sounds like they’re grasping straws to justify not DQ’ing Phil.
