So what you are saying is a player can make an inadvertent error on the first hole of a 72 hole competition, someone can find it on the last day, inform officials via phone after seeing it in frame by frame at home, the match referee can then inform the player as they are walking up the 72nd fairway that they have be penalised 4 strokes.

If that is correct the game is a joke.

I don't think that's a joke at all.  It is an intrinsic part of the beauty of the game Tol and golf isn't like other games.

 

It means that the right outcome is achieved. What is a joke though is these inadvertent errors you speak of.  These are pros and they ought to know the rules.  They even have officials for a second opinion so nothing should be inadvertent.


I am not interested in your blog.

An old bloke at my former club did it quite often, but about 3-6 inches in front of his marker. Would also drag his foot behind the ball in the bunker to give himself a better lie.
 
Come to think of it, he'd also regularly tell you he'd had 2-3 shots less on a hole than he'd actually had. He was pushing 100 and half deaf though so I let it go. Me screaming at him on the green may have drawn unwanted attention towards me.



So that's why Tol doesn't play comp golf anymore.... not slow play at all.... or club chuckers....

Phil seems to think it is a bit a of a problem for a few of the guys on tour. Maybe the bending down gives them a light head and dizziness.
