This is just ridiculous.
And are Asian players over represented in receiving dodgy penalties?

Good isn't it? Strange how they don't penalise weird and wacky science golfer dude DeChambeau for taking more than twice the 40 second allowance on every shot he takes.

It would look strange to pay somebody a $1m appearance fee or whatever, and then give him a penalty for being the jerk they paid for.

Well, true, but doesn't look good does it?

No it doesn’t but I for one agree with the Li penalty as he was definitely “beginning to take his stance” which is what the new rule states, like it or not. Agree though that BdeC should be penalised heavily for his glacial slow play warning

I like how Donald and snedeker piled in on the usga as well. I wasn't even aware that the caddies lining up players was an issue that needed urgently rectified.

Mac,
It's an LPGA "thing", the Koreans, in particular, used to do it all the time; cheating and slowing the game to a standstill.
But guys like Sneds & Luuuke are just the tip of the iceberg of pros who have been criticising some of the changed rules.
Increasing calls for the Pro Tours to adopt their own rules, especially after the McCarthy nonsense.

It sounds as if the PGA Tour is working with the Rules guys about rewording this rule - not completely clear if it's been suspended until it can be reworded. It certainly should be.
