My point of view is that the players are expected to know the rules and police themselves. If one fails to do so, it is fair for anyone who notices it to report it and let the tournament committee take it from there. It is very unlike most other sports where the referee is the police.

It's not very often these cases come up. Camilo Villegas and Padraig Harrington come to my mind but those were some 5-7 years ago. To me that's a sign the system is working and there's an incentive for the players to do their best to play by the rules rather than try to get away with something.

Right decision, totally her fault. There are plenty of cheaters out there and hopefully this will be a lesson to them. Disappointing it took a TV viewer to highlight though. I can't see any reason why she would mark and replace that quickly and not get the ball in the correct position unless she was trying to get an advantage.

100% agree. She moved it on purpose to avoid a spike mark or something. You don't replace it incorrectly that soon after lifting. She cheated end of

I see Big Phil has thrown a wee hand grenade into the mix.... I wonder who he could possibly be talking about ;)

Lexi inspected her ball and was incredibly careless when replacing it.

Penalty, 2 strokes for her carelessness.  The incorrect scorecard signing is terribly unfortunate.

All the rules are there to govern and protect the field.

She likely will not make such an egregious error in the future.

How unusually generous of you slash, surely not a mistake you would have made with the Tigger? :)

And Bingo.

We likely will not ever find out if she did cheat, unless of course she comes out and says so.

My experience tells me, Lexi, at the last moment decided to check her ball before holing or halfassed went through a preshot routine.  Note that her ball is inside her playing competitor and she had to make a play out decision or have her line walked/stood upon.  She picked up her ball from the side vs behind and turned to align the ball layline then replaced it horribly.  The position of her hand changed to get the layline into the position she prefers and this had her now looking through her knuckle(s) blocking the ball marker.  "If she was cheating she certainly is *****.

BB, the cheating event I believe you may be referring to in regard to Eldrip clearly displays his recognition of having caused the ball to move, his hand stops, telling the camera that he was aware of the motion.  Eldrip causes ball to moved  

Eldrip considered the infraction and then proceeded to attempt a follow through on deception.

Totally bollox decision and just the type of behaviour that perpetuates the stuffy old farts in blazers jobsworth image that golf has.

No competitive advantage gained, she should have been alerted to it afterwards and warned to he more careful. But 4 strokes is far too harsh and the fact that someone misses out on a major as a result is preposterous!
