A story like this is always nice to hear.
HOWEVER...that rule drives me nuts. Club grazes a leaf in the sand...no advantage is gained...if anything, it could be more of a hindrance than anything, and all of a sudden, add 2 strokes? Happened to Carl Pettersson this year and it arguably cost him the PGA Championship. If you can hit the ball with a leaf in front of it and still get a good shot off, more power to you!
