The Super Bowl is so boring that I had to golf to spice things up

What has already been an eventful year regarding players and the new Rules of Golf took a bizarre turn on Saturday when Sergio Garcia was disqualified from the European Tour’s Saudi International. Tour officials deemed the 39-year-old Spaniard had committed “serious misconduct” under new Rule 1.2a during the third round at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club.

Garcia had posted a one-over 71 and was well back of the leaders after opening with rounds of 69 and 70. But according to reports, he was accused by fellow golfers playing in groups behind him of purposely hitting his putter into the greens during the round on a handful of holes, causing damage to the putting surfaces. Officials decided Garcia’s actions were significant enough to warrant disqualification.

In a statement, Garcia said: “I respect the decision of my disqualification. I damaged a couple of greens, for which I apologize for, and I have informed my fellow players it will never happen again.”

Rule 1.2a specifies the standards of player conduct and states:

All players are expected to play in the spirit of the game by:
• Acting with integrity—for example, by following the Rules, applying all penalties, and being honest in all aspects of play.
• Showing consideration to others—for example, by playing at a prompt pace, looking out for the safety of others, and not distracting the play of another player.
• Taking good care of the course—for example, by replacing divots, smoothing bunkers, repairing ball-marks, and not causing unnecessary damage to the course.

    Stoned or beheaded more likely.

    I worked on night irrigation years ago at a country club, We had a timer system for the fairways and greens but some needed fine tuning for weather reasons so I would either flip the local switch at the green to give extra or shut off early.

    I would always use the rakes to draw pictures or write messages in the traps , like before church outings I would leave satanic messages or whatever . Certain companies might have an outing and they would get special messages from me too. There was an old man that came in at 430 am to make sure everything on the course was ok before the day began he tried to erase it all but he wasn't 100% successful .

    That was so much fun :D I should have been fired 1000 times

    no the guy that owned it was a shyster . He went bankrupt 3 times and kept changing it into different family members names . He lost control of it like 8 or 10 years ago. I did work for him after that a few times but he dropped dead last summer. Always paid in old 50 dollar bills from a fat roll B)
    The club was bought by some group of clowns that included Jeremy Roenick . He settled around here after he retired from the NHL. A much more legit bunch , I was long gone by then but they would not have tolerated the sand trap shenanigans .

    Pembroke country club in Pembroke mass . A lot of loser former hockey players hung out there at the bar . Wretched drunks like Andy Brickley and Chris Nilan was another :D

    Ok. I think he has it in him. Do you see a rake?
