Luke Donald was almost disqualified from The Masters, despite being the #1 ranked player in the world because his first-round score that he submitted had a smudge on it from the fax machine. For reals.

Only golf is like this. I remember once a player was disqualified for laying down a towel when he had to take a shot from his knees. He did it to keep his pants from getting dirty, but the PGA claimed that he used the towel to “improve his stance,” and kicked him out of the tournament. I don’t really understand why players a so quick to embrace a system that makes them all feel like they’re cheating all the time. I mean, this isn’t an amateur skins game at the pitch and putt. People are watching, so lighen up, PGA.
