Do you know the circumstances which resulted in Lesli Todd's 888?

Although part 2 is not out yet (As of this posting), the announcer Cory mentions at about the 3:20 mark, that Val's mom was indeed caddying for her "at one point."

Does anyone know?

The competition manual states:

In PDGA Majors and National Tour events, the group consists of the players themselves, each player’s individual caddy, any active Tournament staff such as leaderboard attendants, Tournament Officials, etc. and any credentialed media ONLY. No other people may be with the playing group. All others (including players who have already finished their round) are considered spectators and must remain in designated spectator areas away from the playing group.

Round 2 is up. Go to hole 26A, approx 31:00. Judge for yourselves.

ugh...dumb dumb dumb. Its pretty clear that everyone was informed of the rules against alcohol during the competition, but then to break that rule AND be caught on camera doing it? UGH.
Better that Val was DQ'ed when she was rather than some keyboard internet warrior getting a screenshot of her Mom toting a beer around once the videos got released.

Honestly, the best thing to happen now would be for Val (and her Mom) to release a full statement apologizing for their actions to the PDGA, tourney staff, fellow players, park department and Videographers involved. Only then, Maybe, will this "blow over".

Lol, they should release a statement explaining how dumb this rule is and saying they will continue to breaking it during competition.

Ha! Truly LOL. Yah, I suppose that would be one way to handle it....

Didn't I see in the other thread that it is illegal to have alcohol in that park? I guess they could tell the Judge how dumb that law is while paying their fine, but I don't think that would do them any good...but I ain't a lawyer.

i have met Val a couple time and she was very nice. I always cheer for her when she is playing. She does amazing work promoting the sport for women, but she screwed up this time and she need to own it.

Did you post that to show Todd's fatigue on that hole or to show someone caddying for Val? There's a shot at the end as Val holes out with someone carrying a bag, but IDK if that's Val's bag. Just curious.

I'm pretty sure that's Val's blue Grip bag and the person carrying the bag has a cozy in their hand.
