    Well thats a good thing, but on the national stage like the Masters theres more at stake. Are you really against a ref on each hole or for each player at the professional level? The guys that play with you who cheated may be banned but a guy like Tiger, nothing will happen, maybe a fine. The media and golf enthusiasts will have their opinions but thats it.
    He's not getting a fine. he was given permission to stay in the tournament by the Masters committee. Plus, that's not how golf works.
    You guys continue to equate golf to any other sports......... You can't.
    Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

      why are we even talking about this? holy ****.

      draft is SOOOOOON!!
      More people play golf in this country than any other sport. And there is no close second.
      That's why there is so much interest.

        lol that's because it's not an organized sport short of amateur/pro tours. It's not like I can say "I'm gonna go join a baseball team"....doesn't work that way.

        based on what you just said, waking up Sunday at 6am and going out to play 18 holes "makes you a golfer".....which is laughable.

          People play golf for fun. I can guarantee if you ask the whole population if they even give a **** about watching real golf, they'd probably say they don't.

            I dont believe I am. I dont see how putting a ref at every hole for pro tournaments would effect golf in a negative way. While there are many stand up players Im sure theres just as many who will cheat to win no matter the cost, like Tiger.

                  Those are the only kids playing golf besides the ones at the driving range. I grew up in a relatively affluent neighborhood and the high school had a golf team with a grand total of 5 kids. The badminton team had about 30. This being in town of ~30,000 people.

                      The TV ratings tell a different story. Where do you think the money these guys make comes from?

                          Because in golf you referee yourself.

                                Players who get to the touring pro level would have to have gone through years of competition. No way they can get through that if they had ever been caught or even accused of cheating.
                                Its a game of homor that all players who compete accept.
                                Are there amateurs who cheat? Once in a while. I know a couple. But they are usually exposed and as I said, no one wants to play with them.

                                I'm not expecting you to like it. I'm just telling you the way it is. Having "golf referees" would ruin a great game.
