So....an anti-sandbagging rule? Cool!

But I'm not sure I'd want to have a rule like that named after me, used in official literature.

Are you kidding, it's his fifteen seconds of fame. Long after Drew is gone, they will be talking about this rule.

Exactly what are they doing, how are they enforcing this? I mean it's easy to pretend to shag an approach shot, grip lock a drive, miss a putt, etc, etc.

The grouping/seeding for each round is based entirely on the overall season points standing. When Gibson "tanked" his final hole, his score for the round was what was going to determine his grouping (and therefore his opponents) for the next. Now, grouping is predetermined so there's no need to tank. All he has to do is shoot well enough to advance.

Oh boy, more pros blatantly breaking the rules on camera. Reid Frescura on hole 14 (2nd shot) stomping down foliage and then tearing a branch down so it wasn't poking him in the back as he made his throw. Not a good look at all.

The branches he was wrestling with looked unattached but yeah, the brush stomping was suspect, lol. Agree that is not a great look.

Her game definitely seems a roller coaster as of late. Madison Walker....jeesh..I used to think she was just a giggling commentator, but it seems she has game... going to have to take her a bit more serious it seems.
