Given all the whispers one hears on the driving range that seems about right. I think cheating can take many subtle forms. Taking bad drops a la Dahmen vs. Kang seems like the easiest way to get an edge and everyone is looking for an edge. But the 100% number made me laugh out loud.
Twenty-five tournaments a year plus a true offseason sounds like a way to prune back the Tour and leave something stronger and healthier. Sign me up! This is a great rule and ultimately an inconsequential penalty. Are they going to suspend Spieth for three Fall Series events? I think he’ll be okay.
The pay-per-view decision strikes me as tone-deaf. There was always a degree of cynicism behind the marketing of Phil and Tiger’s evolving friendship and rivalry. This just makes that cynicism more explicit.
