Unplayable this afternoon. If they want to protect the game, simply cut the fairways and greens longer. I'm talking like Old Tom Morris days length. These guys wouldn't know what to do.

That's the thing...then the wind isn't as big of a factor. With no grass the margin for problems is tiny.

He knew the rules and used it to his advantage. Can't fault that, to be honest. Especially in this tournament.

I agree 100% with this statement. My old Football coach use to tell the Oline to hold because “if you ain't cheating you ain't trying”.

 

However, I think Phil stuck it to the USGA on this. And I love it!

I seem to recall there have been rules issues on several US Opens. Not sure if the answer, but looking to be courses, instead of resurrecting old might be a start.

Goes to show how knowing the rules s d using to your advantage pays off.

 

USGA once again ruins a great course in en effort to make this tourney a “true test”

I don't get why some people think the course is bullshit. I think it's awesome and opens up another level of challenge and gives the tour players a reasonable challenge to test their skills. Everyone struggles and it makes it fun and entertaining to watch.

 

Regardless..Phil knew the rules and what he's doing. Simple as that. He played it to his advantage bcause the course allowed him to exploit it.

He did not know the rule according to his playing partner. He made that up as damage control. He should own what he did and move on. He was pissed, thought it was bullshit and let his frustration get the better of him period. The USGA won't DQ him b/c they are scared of more bad press. He needs to own it, and apologize. No one will talk about after that.

Not sure how Phil's play gained him any "advantage". His score for the hole, including the 2 shot penalty, was a 10.

He lay 5 and was putting for 6. Had he let the ball come to rest naturally, somewhere off the front of the green, he would then be laying 6 and most likely finished the hole with a score of 8 or 9.

We wouldn't know the outcome had he let it run down off the green. Say if he did and he faced a difficult uphill putt and leaves it short, the ball rolls back down. Hits too hard and ball goes past the hole and he faces another downhill putt situation risking the ball running off the green again.

 

Seems like he did what he did because he didn't want to face a much difficult putt up the hill so he somewhat played it to his advantage. Which is a weak move in that way.

My 2 cents: he made a stroke at a moving ball = 2 stroke penalty, the end.

 

Chamblee not only crying for DQ, but is acting like Phil punched Jack in the face or p*ssed on AP's grave. Went on to say that his comments after 2014 Ryder Cup overshadowed Europe's win. What???

I have never seen anything like that before.

John Daly did the same thing in 1999 at the US Open at Pinehurst.

I get both perspectives, but everything was done within the rules so I am with Phil on this one. If anything, it's a little jab at the USGA poking at the course setup. Whenever you can use the rules to your advantage, do it. This game (with its rules) is hard enough already.

So many people saying to DQ him, it's ridiculous. Rules are set for a reason, and if he happens to use those rules to his advantage, what's the harm in that? It's not like he was in contention.
