got to read this.....interesting.....anymore to add?


Quote :
The finding -- 54 percent of the caddies said they had witnessed such behavior -- conflicts with the game's long-standing image as a bastion of integrity.

"You see guys tamping down the rough behind their ball with a 3-wood and then hitting a 9-iron out," said one of the caddies, all of whom were granted anonymity so they could speak freely without fear of repercussion. "It's illegal, but it happens all the time."

Another caddie said that one player in particular has a reputation for marking his ball illegally.

"Everyone knows it," the caddie said. "The way he marks his ball, he'll turn a 23-inch putt into a 21-inch putt, which is huge psychologically."

How does a 23 to 21 inch putt change so dramatically?

Heh Heh I thought the famous saying is you shoot 7 tell your buddy its 6, write 5 on the score and shout fore

Seeing the 1-2 inches on putt is common, seeing people kick their ball is another but I like some who pick up to identify ? their ball and place it in a better lie...

Sometimes caddies do the cheating or placed the ball on a better lie

it happens in my country specially when there's a Big Money involved.

There are some crazy golfers who bet incredibly huge $$$
