Video reviews in golf - yes or no?
The R&A and USGA have recently issued a new Decision on the Rules of Golf to limit the use of video evidence in the game, with immediate effect. This refers to evidence that could not be seen with the 'naked eye' as well as when players use their 'reasonable judgement' when applying the rules.
All of this comes after Lexi Thompson was penalised four strokes in a recent major after a TV viewer contacted the LPGA to inform them that Lexi hadn't correctly replaced her ball on the putting green the previous day. Thompson was two clear when handed the four-shot penalty on the 12th hole in her final round, eventually going on to lose in a playoff.
The use of video technology has been fully embraced in several sports, with the likes of tennis and cricket utilising everything that's on offer. But when it comes to people at home calling in and affecting the outcome of an event, is that a step too far?

Mizuno swing DNA fitting cart
Find your perfect shaft in just 3 swings...
The Mizuno Shaft Optimizer and Swing DNA system has been the industry’s leading fitting system at local golf club level since its introduction in 2009. As the shaft itself measures all our data, the fitter doesn’t have to own expensive cameras or lasers – so you can be fitted by a local golf professional.
The Shaft Optimizer measure critical factors and displays 5 data points to create your swing DNA: Clubhead Speed, Temp, Shaft Toe Down, Shaft Kick Angle and Release Factor. All the readings are taken from the shaft and not the ball.
From the DNA we can then shortlist 3 suitable shafts for you to test and you could end up hitting the ball 20-30 yards further, maybe more....
If you are interested in being fitted, pop into the pro shop to take a look and book your fitting to try mizuno's latest irons.
