With the grandkids visiting, it was a slow week on the circuit for me personally but wow did the Masters make up for that. I had one 9 hole round and an 18 hole round on Wednesday at Village Green. I shot 79 with minimal short game improvement but working again, on something new, so will see what happens this week, as golf will get into full swing on Wednesday. My 3 year old grandson practices his golf swing constantly. I did ask them what the answer to golf was, but they had no idea what I was talking about, and just walked away. There has been so much written and discussed about the Tiger controversy that I want to write about the subject on a more general level. These call ins about rules violations is nothing new. Paul Azinger and Craig Stadler were victums of these call ins. What I have a problem with, is the decision to assess penalties or disqualifications were made the next day. In every instance the rules committee had all the information they needed that evening on the same day. Instead of sitting down for however long it took and hashing it out, the ruling bodies went to dinner had a few drinks, maybe even got laid(that is if ruling bodies of golf are even interested in such things) and had a good nights sleep. In other words all rulings and decisions should be made on the day of play and the rules committee should deem those rulings final. Nobody should ever go to bed thinking they shot one score and wake up the next morning to find out that it is not true. I feel this happens because committees are just lazy and don’t want to finish job. Not in any other sport where rules are brokien or calls are missed are things changed the next day. Yes I know that games can be played under protest and every once it awhile something changes but it is very rare. I also know the rules of golf is like the holy grail but there comes a time where common sense has to take over. What if some one had a video camera and saw a rules violation that no network camera caught. Then this person decided not to make it public for 6 months and this was the player that won the tournament. Would the rules of golf put in a statue of limitations or would the player be stripped of his title. What happens happens and when the clock stikes 12 the results are final. In the meantime the search continues.
