Re: Golf's Rules are Bunk
DQing a player because he missed a pro-am is just ridiculous though. Now I could understand if the player routinely skips the pro-am, but Furyk was a little late and now is out of the tourney, when over half the field wasn't even subject to the same rule.
Just fine the guy from the check he gets from his next money finish and be done with it. Escalate the fines and only after the absences become egregious (3 or 4) do you remove him from an event. The sponsors care more about the event than the pro-am anyway.
