Thanks Jim for the good coverage and as all other sport you are now an expert on golf as well as the moral compass. How did golf ever make it with out your approval or disapproval for all these years.Tiger didn't win a tainted Masters,but you can't help bashing,really so 2011ish.The good news is Tiger will be around for many more years,so take heart you'll still be able to write about that time at the Masters every time he wins.What is it really like in your perfect world, you and who else?

Souhan, you nailed it. That's why you write, and that's why I read. You took multiple observations and themes and related them with style and skill. You should be proud of this column.

Rules or not, the golf gods have a way of evening things out.

I am glad that this tournament is over. We have a champion that deserves it, and we have others who just missed winning. This is what golf is all about. I just wish that the press would talk about other players besides Woods (here in this article who write about him). I am ready to learn/listen to these "new" players that are up and coming.

Although you probably gave Tiger too much ink and attention in this column (he was not putting well enough to win, regardless of the 2-stroke penalty), thank you for not getting into the "what if?" game that too many Tiger-obcessors fall into. "What if Tiger didn't have that 2-stroke penalty??? He'd have probably won, right?" What if's work for everyone ... what if Cabrera and Scott made a few putts that were millimeters away from falling in? Well, they'd have beaten Tiger and the rest of the field by more than they did.

IF Tiger had won it would not have been tainted. He took an improper lie and was properly awarded a two stroke penalty. I really don't care for all the replays and challenges and overturned calls in all of sports today but Zach Johnson had a really great point. Why do players sign a score card and why does the signature mean anything? A player should be DQ's for what in some cases could be a simple arithmetic or short term memory error? Its like a baseball manager signing a card certifying the score of a game when it is sitting right there on the scoreboard and anyone paying attention knew the score anyway? What should happen is exactly what did happen. A player gets done and is assessed a penalty if one is deserved. End of story. If Tiger thought he had broken the rules he would not have brazenly talked about having done so. No one so far has contradicted that statement.
