I can forgive her. She's hot looking, very rich and a very good golfer......these things really matter in life   :tongue:

She's rather more masculine in real life. I saw her close up in a bush at Woburn.

Disappointing.

You were hiding in a bush looking at women?  Was Nick standing next to you by any chance?

"They will move the ball two, three inches in front of their mark"

So if Phil has seen players doing this then why the hell has he not reported it to protect the field?  I wouldn't be surprised if players were occasionally off the mark by up to 1cm or so, but 3 inches would be very noticeable and should definitely have been called.

There was an interesting post on this incident on the Barry Rhodes golf rules blog.  http://www.barryrhodes.com/2017/04/lexi-thompson-penalised-four-strokes.html

In it he said the below:

"Finally, the proposed Rules changes for 2019 have this ‘reasonable judgment’ clause that might have absolved Lexi had it been in place today;

“So long as you do all that can be reasonably expected of you under the circumstances to make an accurate estimation or measurement, your reasonable judgment will be accepted even if later shown to be wrong by other information (such as video technology).”"


Now personally I had assumed that this clause was going to be used for things like penalty drops from hazards (estimating point of entry), estimating nearest point of relief for free drops, or even things like whether a ball has moved closer to the hole (like Michelle Wie's drop which was mentioned earlier in the thread).  I guess it could also apply if someone moved their marker because it was on someone's line and then replaced it slightly incorrectly (one club head instead of two, 1cm out of the correct spot, etc), but surely in the case of Lexi Thomson this wouldn't have applied?

This clause shouldn't be used for a pro who basically didn't follow the correct and easy to follow protocol in marking a ball...not the biggest fan of Mark Crossfield but he has done a youtube posting showing him asking his kids to simply follow instructions in marking a ball...if an 11 yr old kid can do it correctly a highly paid, full time professional can..and to plead I didn't mean it, etc is a poor excuse

I completely agree David.  I just hope that the R&A and USGA haven't allowed a loophole that will potentially allow tournament officials more leeway in cases like this in the future, even if just to avoid the type of controversy that we have seen over the last week.  The fact that is specifically mentions video technology does seem to indicate that this is very much aimed at the Professional game rather than for amateurs.
