Did you guys see the official give Cristie Kerr a free drop on hole 17? The reason was because of the red ants on the cable?

Personally I feel she had a BIG advantage from the free drop.... if she wins the cup I feel so sorry for Ai Miyazato...

the rules official deem it was a free drop, so she gets a lucky break

It is entitled under USGA Rules 33-8/22 and Decision 1-4/10 which allows the player to take a free drop within 1 club length of the nearest point of relief from the danger, without being nearer to the hole. This rule was highlighted in March's issue of Golf Magazine.

PS: just checked the leader board on LPGA.com and it looks like she Bogied the 17th Hole

Heard commentator saying she got relief for the red ants and not for the cable.
Funny ruling. Very Happy
thankfully Ai won by 2 strokes in the end. Banzai!

If I heard the commentator right, they mentioned the place she stand at is near a nest of red ants... thus the free drop...
