    I've never been able to choose which i hate more. Golf or Tennis? I mean, at least tennis requires athletic ability, so I'm cool with that. Both should be beanned from television though.

    In golf, you are responsible to police yourself. If you accidentally hit your ball and move it an inch and no one sees it, you MUST call it on yourself. Its a game of absolute honor.

    In other words, golf is better than any sport. If for no other reason than this.
    yea so like Pizzleback stated, a bull**** formality
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    A man with a club isnt going to police himself, but a bunch of men with clubs (hockey) will police themselves.

    You don't get it Matt. They reviewed before he signed his card but they thought that Tiger had made a good faith effort to drop "as close to the previous shot". But it was only when Tiger said in an interview that he intentionally dropped it 2 yards back to give himself a better yardage. In other words, they believed that Tiger knew the rule and did his best to abide by it. But he didn't.

    THAT IS THE VIOLATION! They couldn't know if he did it intentionally until he admitted it on national TV. Once he admitted that he violated the rule, and was made aware by the committee, he should have DQ'd himself. he didn't break the rule on purpose, but he forgot the rule (or was clearly confused because he considered dropping behind the point of entry in the hazard where you ARE allowed to go back as far as you want).
    In golf, not knowing the rule is the same as violating the rule intentionally.
    You MUST call any violation on yourself. Its the way golf is conducted.
