Imagine this scenario:

Every missed mark gets called.

The whole damn tournament is played by everyone on "probation".

The whole day is sour.

Who needs this?

That's why probation has to be taken out of the rules!

If you're penalized a couple of times for missing your mark, you'll learn to pay attention to it.

This whole conversation has a great parallel.

Right now, in ball golf circles, the USGA is trying to get amateurs to actually play by the rules of golf. It has great importance for handicap purposes. And they've actually hired Phil Mickelson to do a commercial about "foot wedges".

The foot wedge is what amateur golfs use to "tee-up" their ball without using a tee. You improve your lie by using your foot to roll the ball, oh, not more than a couple of inches, but you make sure it's sitting pretty right on top of the grass. Then, you hit the ball.

This is just like throwing without concern for your mark. You're making the best throw you can, not the legal throw.

I would not call a FF if there is no advantage, but stepping out a foot to the left of the mark to avoid some bushes on the right would be called in a nanosecond. That in my opinion is borderline cheating and I would have no problems calling it on every single hole to the same player. I would in fact feel good about raising the stress level in such a case.

Okay, the USGA didn't pay for the commercial. They endorsed it by allowing the rule to be quoted.

In my experience, foot wedges ruin ball golf.

I used to foot wedge in ball golf, but I was never playing anything but very casual golf and none of us cared.

If there was any sort of cash involved then the rules were followed

The difference between missing a mark and a foot wedge is the foot wedge is very conscious cheating, while the miss is more passive disregard for the rule

Barclays sponsors integrity. DG will never get them at this rate. Who sponsors "go ahead and call me, I dare you"? big grin

I think the hardest thing in DG is not hitting the mark but calling the foul consistently and fairly on all shots.

It's also hard to be the one making the call and then waiting for another person on the card to back up you call. If nobody will you look like a douche who is trying to hard. Then for the rest of the round the attitude on the card changes.

Exactly thats why its so hard. If we were all douches, then no one would be the douche bag.
