USGA/ R&A Statement on Tiger Woods Ruling

  I really believed the ruling bodies were going to stay silent on the matter, but obviously it was a large enough issue and potential precedent setting situation that comment was needed.
   The ultimate statement by the USGA/R&A is a hybrid of the Committee's rights under 34-3/1 and 33-7 were used to reach the decision.  As this kind of situation was not covered in any of the guidance given by the Rules or Decision, the Committee acted to both correct an incorrect ruling and waive the disqualification penalty.  You can read the entire statement by following the link below:
