A.  I give up.   Dunno

B.  I should have gone to the *goshdarn* casino again.

That's right down the fookin' road.

Michelle Wie.  Huge discussion on whether this was a penalty for grounding the club in a hazard.

Gee, Michelle Wie has a hard time with the rules! This is ALMOST as shocking as finding out that Ricky Martin is a homo****ual!

I'm not seeing the problem here: She grounds the club in the hazard, and takes her 2 stroke penalty.

She's a little pissed about it, and I can't say as I blame her.

Strike that:

She says she's off balance, but her word is no good with the official?

*fudge* him! And no, I'm really NOT *feces*ting here. This isn't black and white like her British Open deal.

She says she's off balance, that's the end of the discussion, right there.

Yeah, there's the rub.

My take on the video is she's not off balance.  She's lackadaisical with the club after not getting the shot out, and forgets where she is and where the ball ended up.

But I agree with your take, my opinion(or the R.O.) doesn't mean *feces* since I am not the player and only the player knows.  If she says she was loose and used it for balance, that's the end of it. 

If the game is one of honor and players are expected to call penalties on themselves, you have to allow the width for their opinion.

Also on the rules side, even thought the ball remained in the same hazard, it was not testing or improving.  Tough rule.  Kind of like years back when the one dude hit from greenside bunker to greenside bunker and was pissed about it and slammed his club in the sand. Then someone came over to him and did that finger pointing circle gesture thingy meaning "Dude, you're still in the same bunker."  *fudge*!  More club slamming.

Yup.

Easy to pick on her, given her history with  rules.

I'm with you: She's clearly just not paying any damn attention to where the club is. That said, it's not the rules officials job to determine whether or not she was off balance.

We'd really need a transcript of that conversation. If she tells the rules official a correct answer right off the bat, she should be off the hook.

OTOH, if he confronts her with it and she DOESN'T come with the right answer without prompting, then I can see the penalty.

I know what you are saying.

But the hazard is a special bad place to avoid, which is part of the game, and admittedly quirky rules are invoked once you are in a hazard.  But like Aske says, if you don't like that then go hit it behind a movable boulder, instead.  Or through the green?

To complain about hazard rules is a little bit like a baseball player arguing he should be allowed a base after hitting a rope but right at a defender, who makes the play.   He hit it almost perfectly.  Why should someone who has a swinging bunt be allowed a base but not someone who crushes a tough pitch but right at somebody?

I just wish MW would display some honor.

If you're still posting over at FIGs from time to time, do you ever come across that dude with the 8 kids with red hair and a minivan?? I can't recall his name, but everyone hated him....
