Golf suffered a setback on Sunday with the rules decision by the USGA to penalize Dustin Johnson one stroke when his ball inadvertently moved as he prepared to putt. It was a decision that has been unanimously unpopular by Dustin’s fellow PGA Tour players, and golf fans all over the world.
We’ll break that down today, but more importantly, we want to take this opportunity to move beyond the negative talk, and use this situation as a way to encourage all golfers everywhere that golf is a sport like many others that can be played in a variety of forms and formats. Like any other game, as long as the players can agree on a set of rules, those rules DO NOT have to align perfectly with the sports competitive governing body, ie the USGA or R&A.
