Absolutely fantastic interview with Fred Ridley at the beginning of the CBS broadcast. Surprisingly to me Nantz asked all the tough and right questions. Ridley methodically went through the process the competition committee went through. It’s very clear why he was not DQ’d and also why the two stroke penalty was imposed. Really a great interview by Nantz.
So what's your point?
Nobody, especially me, is arguing against the issuing of the two penalty strokes, that discussion was never held by Fred Ridley and the tournament rules committee until after the 10:00 p.m. phone call from CBS........Here's the transcript.
"Ridley said the committee looked at the video while Woods was still on the course but initially decided there had been no rules violation. But when Woods was interviewed by CBS after his round, he admitted that he had made his drop about 2 yards behind the original spot, which violated Rule 26-1 regarding playing from the wrong spot. Ridley said he got a call from CBS officials at about 10 p.m. Friday informing of Woods comments."
The point I'm trying to make here, and I think I have done it very well, is that prior to the end of Woods's round, the rules committee had determined that his drop was within the rules and thus they had no reason to discuss his action with him and allowed him to submit his card without any penalty.
Who the hell cares about tweets and twitters and emails, they have nothing to do with the lack of action on the part of the rules committee at the time they determined Woods had not violated any rules.
And as I said before, had the rules committee determined from the video that Woods had committed a penalty, they would have told him and Woods would have changed his card accordingly..........and we wouldn't even be discussing this.
Please stand by for a few days as this has driven me back to my law books. Before any street action, we must decide whether Tiger should go home with the Swedish cutie or the skier gal.
or Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend??? It all has to be by the book.
Dennis Miller: “To think the Masters has turned into the Warren Commission over a couch potato in his undies bitching about a foot and a half is hilarious.”
Jotto, I do not think you are taking this grave situation respectfully. Why a fortnight has not passed since our POTUS and Reggie were with Mr. Woods, giving this ball drop international significance.
I'll bet they were!
Thats a shame too, because it bounced OFF THE PIN!!! on the shot before
