    Here is a golf ethics question for you...

     

    What if you were playing in the club championship tournament finals and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes. 

    You had the honor and hit your ball a modest two hundred fifty yards to the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin. 

    Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway. 

    Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball. 

    Just before the permitted five minute search period ends, your opponent says: "Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don't find it in time, I'll concede the match."

    You hit your ball, landing it on the green, stopping about ten feet from the pin. 

    About the time your ball comes to rest, you hear your opponent exclaim from deep in the woods: "I found it!". 

    The second sound you hear is a click, the sound of a club striking a ball and the ball comes sailing out of the woods and lands on the green, stopping no more than six inches from the hole.

    Now here is the ethical dilemma:

    Do you pull the cheating ***’s ball out of your pocket and confront him with it or do you keep your mouth shut???

    BB,

    Once he gives you the go ahead to hit yours, you respectfully decline his offer and stand there until the time is up and observe dropping his ball, taking his penalty shot from there.

    How much is first prize ?

    Brian, I have been placed in this situation, in tournament rounds I always keep watch on situations like this, like Miguel said, you decline the invitation to go ahead and hit, and wait til he drops or goes back to the tee depending on the circumstances. Karma will catch up to him however it burns deep to get cheated.

    You didn't have his ball in your pocket, Did you?

    Both were cheating in his scenario...

    First place is first place no matter how you slice? To be on top is one of the ultimate goals?

    i'm pretty sure karma already came around in this situation.

    I thought I might get a few laughs, either way, they are BOTH cheaters.

     

    Have a great weekend!
