Stewart Cink victim of golf's anal anarchy
The obsession over rules is a big reason so many conservatives are drawn to the game of golf. Personally, I pay little attention to the rules when I play. Neither do my brothers, who like to tee it up on the fairways to make irons shots easier.
People are still talking about the rule that got Stewart Cink disqualified from the Zurich Classic.
In the third round, Cink hit a wayward drive at No. 15 that came to rest near but not in, a bunker. Cink stepped into the bunker to hit the shot. His shot landed in a greenside bunker.
Cink’s caddie smoothed the fairway bunker, and thus violated Rule 13-4: “testing the condition of a hazard.".
He was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard.
Most everybody agrees Cink was the victim of a stupid rule, which golf is full of, but the most ridiculous part is that rule will not be subject to change until 2010.
Golf moves at a glacial speed not only on the course.
