Well she obviously did the wrong thing and got penalised for it, so the correct outcome was reached.
Having said that, it is farcical for a couple a reasons I reckon.
Firstly that someone sitting at home watching TV can have an impact on the result. This should never be allowed to occur, and shows the sport to be ridiculously run and officiated.
Secondly, she was not informed until halfway though her next round. This was a bad as Dustin's ruling where he played the final holes not knowing his score.
There has to be some sort of "statute of limitations" surely in order to avoid this from ever happening again. With all the money at the highest level, they should have a rules official watching the broadcast for just such incidents, and prior to the cards being signed, the official should have their input, so that any infringement can be picked up at the time, and any penalty and score adjustment can take place in a timely manner.
To have been informed halfway through the next round is just ridiculous, and again shows that the sport is run by complete tools at the highest level.
I'm sure at the moment, Greg Norman is probably going back thru the 1987 Masters footage trying to see if Larry Mize cheated in order to get a different result.
