More Reaction To Lexi Thompson’s Bogus LPGA Loss Due To Busybody TV Viewer
After receiving the email, LPGA Tour rules official and annoying brat who reminds the teacher that she forgot to assign homework Sue Witters leveled the penalty, one day later.
Viewers at home should not be officials wearing stripes. Let's go @Lexi, win this thing anyway.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) April 3, 2017
“I can’t go to bed tonight knowing I let a rule slide,” Witters said. “It’s a hard thing to do, and it made me sick, to be honest with you.”Yes, it made us sick as well. How about this, Sue? If you don't catch a violation on the day it happens, it didn't happen. For her part, Thompson handled the entire thing with class. First she overcame the penalty to tie for first and force a playoff. Then when she eventually lost to So Yeon Ryu, who should frankly give the trophy back, she said it was a learning experience and "would try to do better next time." And the infraction? Thompson marked a shot with a silver dollar, then when she replaced the ball it was "in a slightly different position." And no one would have noticed if that one viewer had opted to watch Antiques Roadshow instead. I hate golf.
Feel terrible for @Lexi Thompson.— College Golf (@College_Golfers) April 3, 2017
Had a victory stolen from her by an email from some sad hack with potato chip dust covering his shirt.
