It was hard to tell. I'm not certain but it looked like McBeth called them on Uli or vise versa. Just know that Uli was pissed after the round.

Not sure of the outcome. The card was all standing around 18's basket talking about it while the lead card was trying to throw their upshots.

There should have been someone calling foot faults on the lead card, saw a few of them.

There were 4 people responsible for calling them.

The other 4 players.

A little observation from being at the GCC this weekend.

The weather was perfect this last weekend in Las Vegas. High 60's with little wind. This made the scores that much better since the wind is usually a factor. Lots of OB everywhere. A lot more than I last played it (2011). The top pro's had little problem with bombing the par 4 and 5's as long as they never went ob. And if they did, they threw it so far that they could still par the hole. Lots of eagle opportunities for the big arms on all but one par 4. Watched half of the finals for top two cards, very cool to see up close. These guys can crush. Simon lizzette (Im sure I messed up the spelling) can crush it, and did his last round.

As far as the foot faulting, did not see the controversy, but I think its very hard to be constantly watching the foot faults unless it blatant. So many of the shots were 2nd and 3rd drives, so you had to be watching from afar and see a foot fault, and to call it you better be sure.

What if we could put sensors on the minis so when there isn't a foot within the proper area they glow red but when a foot is placed within the proper area they turn green.

Foot faults are also much easier to call watching a video. And I'm not refering to the Internet Bully type thing either.

Ignoring that you can watch something over and over and make a decision, the camera gives you a pretty good angle of the player. The other players are rarely in perfect position to see a foot fault. It's almost impossible to make that call without the correct angle.
