Wasnt the viewer call in and ruling made the following day so would not have been allowed under the new decision?

You will have to explain to me how and where that is covered in the new Decision.

I thought that's what the new decision was about for some reason, just had a look and clearly not. Must've dreamt it.

Post 127 in this thread by AAA contains the link to the New Decision.
I read this carefully. I am certain ROGOLF has too.
Nowhere in this does this prevent video evidence per se being used.
It clarifies material.
If anybody really wants to understand it they should read the official release not some journo's quick take

I must admit that Lexi's press conference afterwards left me feeling a bit meh.  She was obviously coached as to what to say, but given that she already received the penalty and had the 'worst' consequences, how difficult would it have been for her to say "You know, when I look at the video evidence I can see that it looks bad and accept that the penalty was correctly applied under the rules of golf.  I only have myself to blame, but I can only put it down to the fact that I was nervous and in a big situation.


If you have already incurred the penalty, why not just flat out admit that you can see what everyone else with two eyes can see - that it was put in a different spot?
