I say "let the penalty fit the crime" and in Inkster's case I think the penalty was way overboard. DQ'ing someone for swinging a weight on her club just seems a bit overboard. If she'd picked up two clubs and swung them (obtaining the same goal) nothing would have been thought of it. Maybe a two stroke penalty would have served as well. I know that's the rule, but if you read the rule, it's so vague it's impossible to connect a donut weight with what the rule says. Time to start thinking about changing some of these antiquated golf rules.

Well, I agree some of golf's rules should be changed or eliminated BUT, I do not feel sorry for Inkster. I mean, she has been around forever and should know the rules or, at the least, have a suspicion of what the rules are and then verify one way or the other.
