"I said to them, 'The way I've been brought up in this game by my father is the game is bigger than anybody else,' " Garcia said after shooting 68 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to tie for 13th, five strokes behind leader Phil Mickelson. "If this is going to make anyone think I'm a cheater, I'd rather get a two-stroke penalty and move on than not to get a two-stroke penalty and think I'm cheating.


Settle down, Serge.  You are the guy that spat into a cup, knowing other players still had to play the hole.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS6dA6ngKok

so spare me the self congratulatory BS about respect for the game.

This is only happening because Sergio Garcia's every shot is televised! Because he's Sergio Garcia!

I wish I could call in rules violations in other sports.

The David Tyree helmet catch in the Super Bowl? Yeah, we're going to need to go ahead and review that, since Eli was in the grasp of a defender. Also, it's going to be a 15-yard penalty assessed on the next play, for playing from an incorrect line of scrimmage.

This is utterly ridiculous.  No other sport would even dream of allowing this, and for good reason.  TV only catches a small percentage of the action that happens, and tends to focus on star players.  So you're essentially holding the most popular players to a totally different level of scrutiny than the random scrubs.  Tiger Woods breathes on the ball funny and someone calls and complains, while Boring White Guy #124 gets away with anything that doesn't get caught in realtime because TV doesn't give a shiat about him.  Ridiculous.

Where are these people getting the phone number for the rules officials? And how are they getting through? I don't watch much golf, so I have no idea if they show the number with some message like "See something, say something." What's the deal?

Regardless, this takes the cake when it comes to overly vigilant viewers: viewer catches CBS playing incorrect bird noises in background of telecast

Here's an idea...Place a rules official with each grouping and/or hole to call penalties. Going back to the previous day to issue a penalties is stupid.

It would be the the first and probably only fairly game called in the NBA.

In Tiger's case it was a former PGA and USGA tournament director, who happened to know the guys officiating the Masters.

Right but it was Jim Nantz who turned Tiger in to tournament officials.
