Also all these rule changes to speed up play, does the leaving the flag in rule actually help ?

Player A putts from 35ft with the flag out
The mad scientist putts from 30ft with it in and races it 8 ft past
Player C putts from 20ft with it out
Now back to the mad scientist with his 8 footer and he wants it back in.
A and C still might have to finish as well.

No time saving there.

does anyone seriously think the same penalty in the same circumstances would have been imposed on Woods, Phil or Rory?

I've just seen the footage and it looks marginal anyway ! Absolute joke from the ET and I agree SLA that no way would a top name have been penalised ! Lots of talk about Bryson's slow play and will be interesting to see how long it takes one of the tours to pull him up !

Yes, John Paramore imposed a two shot on penalty for slow play on 14 year old Chinese Tianlang Guan in 2013. Thankfully he still made the cut. Paramore would not have had the balls to penalise one of the top players. Another example of penalising the poor defenceless chinaman who wont fight back. I saw this incident afew times and did not see anything wrong. A caddie can still read the putt for his player without lining him up and this is what happened in this case.

Imagine the carnage if he had holed out for a supposed two shot victory or worse a one shot victory.

haven't seen any golf coverage since but will be very interesting to see how Sky cover/comment on this incident through

this week given that Li is playing.

Some of the forthcoming Women's events could be interesting

Did Sky say anything about Garcia vandalising half a dozen holes at the weekend ?  Or does being non-American spare him the outrage as usual ?

Garcias behaviour in the bunker when he was blaming a caddy for his poor lie,ie not raked properly,was quite frankly a disgrace...
The day before they bulleted him.
It's a ****g hazard you ****. These perfect lies expected by these pros in bunkers outrage me
The shouts of get in the bunker not the rough,wish could've heard if shouted that on this occasion.
When won the masters thought would change his outlook,instead he is worse,a dreadful watch....
Should've thrown the book at the ignorant arrogant ****.

Good article, thanks.

There is a tantrum compilation in that youtube search and two of them are Garcia.
Report sewter lives again February 6, 2019 8:09 PM GMT
try behaving like that in your own club...

imo Garcia should have had a whopping fine-his appearance fee would have been appropriate and/or a ban

100% correct.
Every single dollar of the million or so he grubbily received.
Make him think.
