19th Hole

Eddie Pepperell DQ’d in Turkey after running out of balls

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell’s weekend at the Turkish Open Airlines came to an abrupt end when during his third round, the Englishman ran out of balls after suffering his very own “Tin Cup” moment.

The incident occurred on Pepperell’s 13th hole of the day after starting at the tenth at Montgomerie Maxx Royal, where the 28-year-old repeatedly found the water attempting the same shot.

Speaking to Golf Digest’s John Huggan, his playing partner, Martin Kaymer, gave some insight into what had happened following the round.

“Eddie hit his shots to the green, then came over to tell us he had run out of balls. Then he walked off. I thought he lost four or five. We are about 80% sure it was five, 20% four. He was quick, so it was hard to keep track. He did not ask if he could borrow one from me or George (Coetzee, the third man in the group).”

Kaymer further explained how Pepperell “did not look like he wanted to play”, as well as adding that the Englishman had putted with a wedge on the previous hole.

Despite running out of balls, Pepperell could have completed his round had he borrowed a ball from Kaymer or Coetzee, but would have been DQ’d if it was a different ball than the one in which he started the hole.

    This guy’s attitude totally sucks, not surprised at this

    He didn’t actually care, he rarely does

    2 years ago at the British Open he admitted that he turned up for the last round hung over and he was top 10 in the tournament at the time – TOTAL DISRESPECT

    He needs a good kick up the …

    I can’t believe he would go out with only 6 or so balls. I think he just decided he had had enough and quit. Should have explained to playing partners – sure they would understand but probably not approve.

    It was intentional and a crybaby way to end a round early. Take it on the chin and record your round. Don’t get pissy and do this. Poor form

      What, that you need to play golf with a ball?

    I was always under the impression if you ran out of balls that was tough luck. I never thought you could borrow any either regardless of the make and model. I guess you could send your caddy to the locker room or even the pro shop? Only heard of this happening a long time ago to Billy Kratzert.

    Rule Misc.
    One Ball Condition
    Q.What does the “One Ball Condition” mean?

    A.The Rules of Golf do not require a player to use the same brand and type of golf ball throughout the stipulated round. A player may use a different ball to start each hole. However, the Committee may adopt as a Condition of a Competition, the “One Ball Condition.” When this condition is adopted, players are required to use the same brand and type of golf ball throughout the stipulated round. Please refer to Appendix 1; Part C; 1 (Specification of the Ball).

    Different ball meaning not just brand but type. If he was playing a ProVI he could not “borrow” an avx. Player is required to use same model ball throughout the round

Tuesday: Played @pinehurstresort number 4. This course is phenomenal. Gil Hanse’s redesign of this course is outstanding. Definitely not as punishing as course 2 but just as good in terms of layout. Greens are fast and large but will not punish you as much with imprecise shots. Much more fun to play if you want to score well. Still difficult but it will not frustrate you like Course 2. We had a beautiful 70 degree day and couldn’t of had a better time playing this course. We had the first tee time off in the morning and finished just under 4 hours which left us enough time to go play another track which I will post about shortly. Enjoy the pics! #pinehurst4 #whyilovethisgame #pinehurstgolf #golfislife #instagolf #golfdigesttop100 #ncgolf #golfwrx #golfcoursepics
