As I understand it, the screen bound official will see what home viewers see. The idea is to preempt potential call ins and contact the on course referee immediately so he can sort it quickly.

 

It is not intended to expose more breaches but to protect players and officials from belated calls.

Don't know about that.  Typically, the tours have about six Referees on course at events.  They are not in a position to watch every player/group.  Putting a Referee watching the telecast will ensure that the Referees see what the TV viewers see and permit quick followup.

By only covering the telecast they are trying to make sure that the public doesn't pick up errors that don't get dealt with - prevent the sort of stuff that the footy deals with a lot with rooke slamming the refereeing errors

If it was about reducing mistakes they'd want to watch all the feeds not just the one the public sees

Not all arses will be covered.  There will still be some trainspotter who freeze frames a slo-mo replay to  find a grain of sand being touched in a bunker or similar, and the person watching the live feed won't be able to do that as they will, you know, be watching the live feed. 


If I can win an OOM anyone can.

People (spectators, crews, staff) on site can still report issues that will require follow-up.

There will never be a perfect world of every player submitted to the same scrutiny. Whether it is the Club comp or a big tournament with or without TV coverage.
There will be innocent mistakes and rarely, something not okay (cheating).
The Tours have scrimped on Referees, IMO.
They have been slow to use available technology, as well.

I only hope they implement the penalty decisions during play and not the next day. Players sign for the score on the day. Penalties need to be applied and the player informed before they finish their round.
Let the call in post it on YouTube the next day or week.There won't be that many and it will always be subjective anyway.

I'm sure they will do everything they can in a timely manner.  "Finishing their round" or a day's play is not a deadline for getting it right, which is the highest priority.

Its pretty important to do it before the end of the round though, or the player gets the extra penalty for signing an incorrect card.

Or did the get rid of that rule?

If the Committee is investigating a potential infraction before the player has returned his card, the penalty for returning an incorrect score because of that potential infraction is not applicable.  The player will be so advised and can leave the scoring area with assurance.  That's not a new procedure.

Didn't someone cop a 4 point penalty this year for the infringement and signing an incorrect card?

That case wasn't being investigated by the committee at the time.
There werw different circumstances with that one
