    I just saw a replay of it on ESPN. He said 2 yards, but on the replay, it was more like 2 feet.

    We should have an answer to the Woods question by the time Bubba Watson hits the first tee shot of the first round at 9:25 a.m. ET.

    What does that have to do with my post? In the rule it says near. How close is near? Is 2 yards near? It doesn't say and is vague and therefore I doubt they get rid of a Masters champion due to this vague rule

    I'm getting nervous. I have so many ice cold Masters brews in my fridge. I don't wanna drink watching Rory "Toothache" McIlroy.

    The rule actually says "as near as possible."

    It seems to me that he thought he was actually using the other option, and his explanation in the interview is consistent with that view. In that option, the only requirements are that

    1. the drop is farther back than the distance of the original shot and (he said 2 yards)
    2. the spot the ball last entered the hazard is in a direct line between the drop and the flag (no mention in the interview)

    He may have been mistaken about where the ball last entered the hazard. It looks to me like he just made an honest mistake.

    The ball entered the hazard about 40 yards left of the original shot.

    That's interesting. I always thought the rule was worded where the shot last crossed the hazard, not entered.

    Golf Channel just said that Tiger has been assessed a 2 stroke penalty and will not be disqualified. Instead of starting at -3 he will be at -1, 5 strokes back.

    That is way within the reach of the lead, I just don't see low scores happening. Look what happened to Sergio and Dustin. Tiger got very lucky though.

    Sounds pretty consistant. Wasn't Dustin Johnson assessed a 2 stroke penalty in a Major a couple of years ago due to an improper drop.
