PGA Championship Somewhat Ruined By Bunker Ruling
August 15, 2010
(ChattahBox) – Reporting before the playoff begins. PGA officials just shot themselves in the foot ruining a great ending to a golf tournament, which happens to be a major. Dustin Johnson appeared to bogey the final hole of the PGA, setting up a playoff with Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson. But he grounded his club in what was deemed a bunker and it may have been at one time. But when you allow spectators to stand over the area, trampling it down and encircling the player when he attempts to hit the shot that is not a bunker anymore! Where were the officials? This was the last group of the day and the leader is out on the course. Shameful!
Update: Martin Kaymer, who made a terrific up and down on 18, to get into the playoff came back after being down after the first hole to win the three hole playoff against Bubba Watson. Congratulations to Martin, Wisconsin and Whistling Straits which is a magnificent golf course.
