But then again, as he proved at the Masters, those rules things are for other players if you are Tiger Woods
here's the proof and it's absolute
Woods decided to pick a spot about 200 yards further ahead of where his ball crossed the water
Not even arguable really --- watch the shot as it happened and the announcers agreeing that it didn't cross any water at all
"I saw it perfectly from the tee," Wittenberg said. "I told him exactly where I thought it crossed, and we all agreed. ... I told him I thought it crossed on the corner of the bunker right where he took his drop, and it's all good."
Wittenberg was questioned several times about the drop and the ball flight, which he said was hooking into the water.
"Yes, for sure, there is no doubt, guys," he said. "The ball crossed where he dropped."
Point #5 of the rules is important. You can not require "consideration". That means purchase. Since it is open to those who have previously made a purchase, the consideration rule is broken.
The contest (sweepstakes) must be open to all. An age limitation i.e. 18 can be included.
The basic sweepstakes rules have been in place for a very long time. And yes, as a younger marketing director I ran many sweepstakes.
I wonder if the Jets registered the sweepstakes where necessary? NY has such a requirement. A complete list of winners MUST be available on request - a law. That might keep the front office busy, mailing those out.
You can SAY "No purchase necessary" all day long. The Jets probably picked up an entry blank from a shampoo sweepstakes. LOL
HOWEVER, open to all who have previously purchased is NOT open to all.
NY also requires a surety bond. NJ does actually not require a registration for this type of consumer sweepstakes.
No problem though, the fine in NY is only $50k.
Wonder if they employed a sweepstakes lawyer or sweep firm. Pays to have someone help.
never hooked a frigging inch
entered the water from the point directly behind where the frigging water started
Johnny Miller is one of his biggest defenders but he said it was an illegal drop immediately
Mark Rolfing said the shot didn't cross any land further forward than the beginning of the water
look, time to drop this topic
Woods cheated again as he did in the masters.
Congratulations to that web.com kid who won the Players Championship
this particular view was directly above where the ball was hit and followed it directly over the water from beginning until it splashed down (never having hooked or crossed the hazard other than at the very beginning of the hazard approximately 200 yards further back than the point where Woods decided he should drop the ball leaving himself a short shot to the green)
He still made a double bogey -- probably would have been a triple or quad with a legal drop
well, see, it was up in the air over the lake where the camera was focused directly on the tee shot and thus able to follow the ball going directly at it and into the lake without crossing any frigging land other than the bushes about 100 yards from the tee and at the beginning of the lake
Instead of trying to make a Johnny Cockroach defense for the "down the fairway 280 yards and then hooked into the water" needed to support the spot where Woods decided to drop and give himself a wedge shot to the green, try and actually take a look at the frigging ball flight directly into the water and listen to the announcers as they described the shot when it took place
Clearly gave himself a nice 200 plus yard mulligan and still made a double
I feel sorry for the poor web.com Swedish kid that got cheated out of the Players Championship title
the first video I posted apparently got taken down so here is a second one of the same shot not crossing any land at all anywhere near where Woods decided to drop his ball
Mets do the same thing every year. I guess they found a way to word it so it is legal.
Makes no matter, the players have the view and make the call. He didn't make it on his own either. It was the right call, had no effect on play either.
Tiger and plenty of others have gotten the benefit of the doubt with rules infractions, Harringtons mistake led to this. Guys from Palmer to Cink have had plenty of leeway given them. It's not just Tiger.
Either way, TV replays and fans should never, ever change rulings
2. They conveniently shut the NBC feed right before the replay where Miller and Jacobson agree that the drop was proper.
3. It was agreed on by his partner.
4. Read the comments, these guys are morons, blaming everyone for a vast conspiracy.
Love a room of Jack fans crying whenever Tiger proves he's the best to ever play the game. :D
