Is Tiger playing today? I think you will find that his drop, while illegal, wasn't intentional. I seriously doubt he was aware he was dropping NOT according to the rules. That said, the rule interpretatuins need refining. An official on course can assess a penalty for slow play - why not have whoever is the rules person with each group take a more proactive approach? "TIger, you can't frop there. It ids supposed to be as close to the original spot as possible." Save everyone the aggravation and controversy. As to the current situation, Tiger shouid withdraw. Despite thepublic relations disaster, he would be a better player in all eyes, I think, if he "did the right thing."
