Rickie Fowler hates the new “knee-high” drop, a change from the old “shoulder-high” drop.
Says it’s not cool, the knee-high drop.
Fine, we’re sending Rickie to the “cool corner” of the Dog House this week.
Same for Justin Thomas who can’t stop tweeting about those dastardly curs at the USGA and R&A who dared make all these changes to the rules of golf.
The great Henry Longhurst once said: “The rules of golf should be written on the back of an envelope.”
Henry was on to something.
You can also add the PGA Tour officials to our Dog House occupants after they waited overnight to penalize Adam Schenck about 40 minutes before he went to play his third round at the Honda Classic on Saturday. Seems they deemed it was a no-no for his caddie to stand behind him while Adam dug in for a bunker shot at the 17th hole on Friday. They were discussing where to land the ball, no lining up talk, none of that. It was the only spot where Adam’s caddie could stand.
But alas, because Adam didn’t start over with his stance, he got hit with two shots. A little judgement please?
It’s betting crazy out there to the point where it’s a farce of sorts.
So into the Dog House with everyone connected to this nonsense!
