19th Hole

Eddie Pepperell DQ’d from Qatar Masters after a ruling he claims lacks “common sense”

Published

on

European Tour pro Eddie Pepperell was disqualified this morning following his round at the Qatar Masters after signing for the correct overall score – 71 – but with certain holes scored incorrectly.

Pepperell took to social media to explain the mix-up where he stated that his partner had marked him down for a five on one hole where he had taken six, and four on another when he had made three.

In a series of tweets, the Englishman stressed that he accepts that “the rules are rules” but that he is disappointed as he “can’t help feeling that this particular way of disqualification is a fair distance away from common sense.”

Do you agree with Pepperell that his DQ was a distance away from common sense, WRXers?

    I agree that the scores on each hole should be correct.

    Public pro tournaments should take the scoring out of the hands of the players. The only thing that should count is the actual number of strokes. Paperwork errors are common in every profession–just correct them and don’t worry about penalties for bookkeeping. It’s never good for a sport when picky rules not related to actual play can affect outcomes. Only the performance of the player should count. Might as well penalize them for the wrong color shoelaces or for wearing a hat backwards.

    Maybe Eddie lacks…Common Sense. It’s not like it’s severely difficult Calculus were talking about here.

    I’m obviously being stupid here but how’s he cheated if the score was right? I get that he was dq’d and that bit was probably right as he got scores muddled up but his overall score was right?

    Maybe he was hungover again and could not think or see straight

GolfWRX Classifieds Spotlight (05/29/20): Ping, Byron Morgan, Mizuno Copper!

Published

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member BassCatchr77 – Ping i500 / iBlade combo set

They might look like blades all the way through the bag, but this is not your average combo set. Ping i500s are some of the hottest hollow irons on the market and the iBlades are way more forgiving than they appear. This is like a sneaky speedster family sedan with 500HP under the hood.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Ping Combo Set

Member Ngin24 – Byron Morgan Milled Putter

Most people know the big names when it comes to milled putters, and although Byron Morgan hasn’t yet broken into the mainstream doesn’t mean he doesn’t make an awesome putter! This is a milled Anser shape with clean lines and no alignment aid on top – they don’t get cleaner than this.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Byron Morgan Putter

Member DirtyBirdie2 – Copper Mizuo MP 20’s

This is one of 500 sets released worldwide and safely being stored in their original box. The asking price might seem high but when you consider the rarity of these irons ( and how freakin’ cool they look ) can you really put a price on them?

We are just two short weeks from live PGA Tour action…just let that sink in and inspire.

That is all, let’s see what happened on IG and the Tweeter.

This is personal…

My best friend just ripped Santa Ana CC in half…

He wasn’t the best last Sunday…

But Chuck did perform like a Hall of Famer.

This can’t be ignored…

Great swing pro, but wait…..that’s your backyard?! Where did I go wrong? SMH. I’m chipping whiffle balls into a kids’ sand bucket.

So good to see the boss out of his back garden ????

Jacklin coming in HOT….

I mean yes it’s shocking he only won one major…..but he’s Sergio, he’s still a legend.

The Steve Stricker Invitational is canceled…

I watched this tourney for one reason….to watch Steve Stricker (Top 10 all-time faves) take a victory lap. YouTube highlights here I come.
