Tiger Woods may not be playing at this week’s WGC-Mexico, but those in the field who are will see a new commemorative plaque on the ninth hole dedicated to a shot from the 15-time major champion at the 2019 tournament.

The plaque sits just outside the fairway bunker on the par-4 ninth hole and pays homage to Woods’ spectacular 134-yard shot with a 9-iron which he carved around a tree and spun to 12-feet.

Check out the shot below.

Woods went onto miss the putt, and eventually finished the event in a tie for 10th place.

Do you feel the shot merits its own plaque, WRXers?

    The US is going to build a wall around that plaque. Matt Kuchar is going to pay for it.

    Really! Mustn’t be much entertainment in Mexico.
    Great shot but it’s got to have more meaning for a plaque.

    Great shot but plaques should be reserved for iconic shots. Missed putt, 10th place finish in the event, is it even a top-10 shot for Tiger all time?!?

    Iconic shots – ones that win tournaments, hole outs, under pressure – should receive plaques.

    Shot was great. But he failed to capitalize on the 8 footer he left himself. I just feel like it takes something away from all of the celebration about that shot.

14 players disqualified from mini-tour event for playing from the wrong tees

Published

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, there is still golf being played in some regions of the US in mini-tour events, and Tuesday during an event on the Outlaw Tour saw a significant rules controversy.

Per Ryan French (Twitter’s Monday Q Info), 14 players during round one of the Outlaw Tour’s Verrado Founders Championship were DQ’d from the event after playing from the wrong set of tees on one hole.

Despite the 14-men playing from a distance longer than they should have, there is no dispensation from the rule despite it being clear there was no intent to gain an advantage on their competitors.

Following the opening round, tournament director Jesse Burghart released a statement on Facebook where he defiantly stuck by his decision to disqualify the 14 players.

“I stand by my decision to uphold the integrity of the game and the Rules of Golf…Penalty for breach of rules is disqualification. It’s very black and white and one of the most important rules to follow.

I’ve heard all the name calling and peanut gallery remarks. At the end of the day we are supposed to be professional golfers. Ultimately it’s your decision to be one or not.

Sheriff Out”

@acaseofthegolf1

One of the players DQ’d because of the error was James Feutz who backed the Tour’s decision on his social media, but explained how he feels some compensation should be given “considering how many people made the same mistake and the current world situation.”
