Cheaters on Tour

Recommended Posts

I don't care much for this type of stuff. I suppose GD thinks it cool but to me it's just gossip and the Nat'l Enquirer.

Billy Mayfair?

 

If this was the women's tour it would be pretty obvious who.

From the scant information we received via Jack Nicklaus' Masters presser on the Lexi situation, I feel like Danny Lee could be singled out as the serial ball mark violator that was given a "talking to" during the prior Presidents Cup. But I did my homework before making any assumptions.

Nah, not judging anybody. Just mere curiosity.

 

And I don't even know who Billy Mayfair is :lol:

Sooooo who hasn't cheated in golf at one time or another? I roll the ball in the rough on occasions, I may not mark the ball perfectly, and I have putted with a titty putter recently. My wife loves me, my dog loves me, and all my golfing buddies would be pissed if I didn't show up at the blitz.

 

They know I cheat because they do too. It's a cheating kind of thang with our group however it's all good....

 

You may not cheat in golf however did you ever tell a lie? Did you ever steal something (piece of candy or your brothers/sisters stuff? Don't judge unless you judge your self first...

 

 

Gawd I hope the person who phones in rule violations gets a case of the hundred year jock itch!

If you're not cheating, you're not trying!

My Dad and I were talking about this yesterday. There's a difference between gaining advantages and straight out cheating so hopefully there's proof of this player doing the latter.

I am not good enough at golf to follow all of the rules. I would hate golf if there were refs on the course telling you what penalty you just committed. On TOUR if you knowingly cheat you should be suspended for a few tournaments.

 

If I cheat it's because I'm not hitting my ball off a cart path, out of a crater, up against a giant pine tree, in rocks... I try to avoid this stuff, but I'm not going to take a chance of ruining my clubs. If I am keeping score for handicap I play by the rules, but if I'm out with my dad just having fun. Who cares.

And the thing is all my Tuesday group cheats. You can move it a club length and inside the leather is good. We're just good ole boys betting a little money and having fun. Hell the most you can win is $40.00 and everybody is good with our local rules.

 

I played with some of my old buddies in middle Georgia a few weeks back. You play it down everywhere. Pure golf rules to the extreme. I hit the ball better than the boys I bet with all day however they took my money. I ended up with huge dings in two of my irons hitting the ball off rocks and roots. There's no where to drop the ball without rocks snd roots. DawgDaddy said I should have brought an old beat up 7 iron to punch out of trouble. If I had to do it again, I'd do that.

 

I prefer not to play that way . I haven't been back since then.

My league has a 6" fluff rule. we're just a bunch of working guys that have fun on Wednesday evenings. Most of the time my partner and I tell whoever we're playing with to put the ball where they have a shot, because we just don't care that much...lol. 

 

Golf is supposed to be fun. If you are playing for fun, why not have fun?

 

That said.... I never play like that in a more serious setting.

I'm willing to bet you're not a cheater Old Gray. If your ball rolled in the water and no one was looking would you fish it out or drop one and then tell me it was dry? If your ball was in an unplayable position would you move it and not tell me? If you lost a ball would you not tell me? If you were OB and I didn't know it would you not tell me? That's cheating and I don't think you'd do any of those things to anyone.

 

Now, and since we're not playing a tournament and just playing a weekend game; I don't mind or expect you to play strict rules. I don't. If we discover your ball went OB I say just take a drop add your penalty strokes and keep moving. If you're in an unplayable position... take a reasonable drop with penalty and keep moving.

 

So I call BS on you saying you cheat.

You're absolutely right PJ.  I would not do those things you mentioned above.  That kind of stuff would never cross my mind. I was thinking the lax rules my buddies and I use were considered cheating however since we all cheat it would not be an issue. At least for us. I was telling a potential new guy I asked into our group today about us moving the ball off rocks, roots, etc. and he looked at me like, hell I do that anyways.   I told him it might not be real golf however you're gonna have one heck of a good time with us.  :D

Here is where I disagree. For us, fine but PGA boys no!

Ya ain't doing this as a job/career and ain't playing for millions.

From the scant information we received via Jack Nicklaus' Masters presser on the Lexi situation, I feel like Danny Lee could be singled out as the serial ball mark violator that was given a "talking to" during the prior Presidents Cup. But I did my homework before making any assumptions.

Danny Lee is who I was thinking too but Danny doesn't use a long putter and that's one of the things that was mentioned in the article. The long putter really narrows the group down. Heck if I'm in a bad divot in the fairway I roll it out a little to get a better shot. I play a lot with random people because I work a different schedule than my weekend golf buddies so I tend to play it where it lies more because of it being with people I'm not familiar with and don't want to have them say something. I've played some shots that honestly I never should have tried to do and that most pros wouldn't try but I get a kick out of those shots sometimes.
