Tiger Woods Avoids Disqualification From The Masters For Cheating, Is Penalized Two Strokes Instead

Tiger Woods will begin Round 3 of the Masters five strokes behind the leader after tournament officials elected to punish him with a two stroke penalty for taking an illegal drop at 15 Friday after this disastrous turn of bad luck.

Debate continues, however, because golf rules generally dictate a player who turns in an improper score card be disqualified; since Tiger's card yesterday didn't feature his penalty for the illegal drop, he's due for a DQ. Course officials, no doubt concerned about their bottom line in a Tiger-less Rounds 3 and 4, averred to sympathy toward the offender. That this bending of the rules comes less than 24 hours after a "rules are rules" punishment of Guan Tianlang, well, that's Augusta National.

Black people get all the breaks. It is enough to make a little girl cry about it on the Topix forum.

Just another mud getting the favorable 'obama treatment' which is an ignoring of rule (or law) breaking. Similar to the NBP getting a pass on issuing a dead or alive bounty on George Zimmerman.

Here's a tissue, Janie.
Funny, they didn't give the Chinese 8th grader a break...for playing too slowly.

My being concerned over Tiger Woods' alleged cheating would first require me to give a damn about golf or Tiger Woods which I do not.

Funny how officials "averred" to sympathy from golf fans instead of deferring to it.

They should have DQ'd the bastard. When David Duval and Nick Faldo call for it that's good enough for me. A real tour pro would have DQ'd himself.

And once again, Georgie fires off his bulldog mouth without knowing what the Hell he is talking about:

According to the USGA website, the "revision to Decision 33-7/4.5 addresses the situation where a player is not aware he has breached a Rule because of facts that he did not know and could not reasonably have discovered prior to returning his score card. Under this revised decision and at the discretion of the Committee, the player still receives the penalty associated with the breach of the underlying Rule, but is not disqualified.''

He should have. It is a gentlemen's game.

Anybody remember when Nick Faldo climbed a tree to look for his best shot out of the rough? I forget which tournament.

The rough at Augusta is like a normal course's fairways. The fairways are like our greens, and the greens are like glass.

Let's see you address that point with David Duval and Nick Faldo. And who the hell believes the number one ranked golfer in the world "didn't know the facts"?

"The question is, did Woods’ knowingly take a favorable drop on the 15th hole figuring nobody would notice? That’s why it would seem golf people feel Woods should be disqualified since he did it on purpose and said as much to reporters after his round. It’s hard to feign ignorance when the words coming out of your mouth say, in plain English, you committed the misdeed, right?"

Funny how the BOD at Augusta said there would never be a black man on the grounds unless he was carrying a serving tray and less than a decade later they were helping Tiger Woods put on the green jacket.

I'm still disappointed that Greg Norman never won that tournament.

And che, once again, knows it all. Probably doesn't even know what a bogey or birdie are.

Look, if you'll cheat on your spouse, you'll cheat at anything. As far as the drop, I haven't seen it.
I do have enough respect for Faldo and Duval to believe what they say. They would not embarrass themselves by making a wrong observation.

This is pro golf. Not our friendly round at the local country club. No gimmees allowed.

Woods is no steady Jack Nickolas (sp?) or Artie Palmer. He's more like the John Daly 'flash in the pan' golfer. Very talented, the fame quickly went to his head, he's lost his concentration and his game is off. He may never get it back.

I had a lot of respect for Tiger as a man until he threw Fuzzy Zoeller under the bus and basically called the man a racist when nothing could have been further from the truth.
Then I lost respect for him over time as a golfer as his arrogance became totally unacceptable behavior on the course, acting like a kid in junior high school when it came to self control.
John Daley could have been a truly elite golfer, but his demons were too much for him.

I really don't give a crap about golf.

I just think its comical when Paco cuts and pastes an article as support for his position without noticing an obvious misuse of a word that calls into question both the writer's, and Paco's credibility.

I see a clumsy but not incorrect use of the word.

Aaaah, oh bigoted one, let's play the substitution game, shall we?

"Course officials, no doubt concerned about their bottom line in a Tiger-less Rounds 3 and 4, averred to sympathy toward the offender."

"Course officials, no doubt concerned about their bottom line in a Tiger-less Rounds 3 and 4, affirmed with confidence to sympathy toward the offender. "

"Course officials, no doubt concerned about their bottom line in a Tiger-less Rounds 3 and 4, declared in a positive or peremptory manner to sympathy toward the offender."

Those don't seem to work. Let's try this:

"Course officials, no doubt concerned about their bottom line in a Tiger-less Rounds 3 and 4, deferred to sympathy toward the offender."

There...that's better.
