Matthew Wolff hit his ball during a practice swing at the WGC - Workday Championship at The Concession 2021. Under the new rule he was allowed to replace the ball under no penalty.

The European Tour heads to The Concession Golf Club for the WGC-Workday Championship at the Concession.

Defending champion Patrick Reed, who is a two-time winner of this event, also returns. Elsewhere, the Ryder Cup points battle continues, with seven of the nine players currently occupying automatic qualifying spots in the field this week: Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy (European Points), Victor Perez, Matt Fitzpatrick and Viktor Hovland (World Points List).

Should still be a penalty. He gained information he otherwise wouldn't have. Speed of the green and slope.

Anyone remember in the old days when they all would put their putter in front of the ball to line it up? Then they would lift their putter over the ball to set it up.

So if the ball moves by an unintentional touch of the putter, no penalty; but if it moves due to the pressure of your club without any touch, it’s a penalty...that’s not cricket...

Wait what? That no longer counts as a stroke? Is this to save time lining to quicken professional play? Also only on the green? Fairway?

Dude played really well. Eleven over par and a WD. I remember some ‘tard on here confidently stating that he would win many majors. Umm, really? Hes the replacement for Furyk - he’s alright but he’s no Rory / Koepka.

@DASHYDASH EYESPOKE lol. When did you see Rory or koepka shooting 83 on the PGA Tour? Umm never. Perhaps Rory has shot an 80 in the open on a bad day, but I’m saying this Wolff bloke is overrated. Shonky swing, shonky results. He’s nothing special. Tiger never played like this in his early years so it’s fairly clear Wolff will never be a “great”. Although ask around on this forum and the closet Beliebers will tell you he is. And I guess you’re one. But it’s very likely you still live with your Mother so go figure.
Jizzzz what an ignorant tonsil you are...??? The guy had a bad day out there,it’s happened to every single pro on chill buttfuhck

Well there ya go. Thought that would be counted as a stroke for sure. But apparently not. No intent. Does that mean I get to take all my putts again? I never intend for them to go where they do.....even when they go in the hole lol

Didn't one of the guys get a penalty for having the ball move at address, isn't intention to move the ball then is it. This should remain a penalty, its a dumb mistake.
cill521 ヶ月 前
@Moe Syzlak Forgive me but it is a little confusing. When grounding the club there is no intent in hitting the ball, however when it moves you get a penalty because the ball is in play. When you ground the club on the tee (with no intent), the ball moves you do not get a penalty because the ball is not in play. When you do a practice stroke you hit the ball with no intent however the ball is in play, no penalty.
Moe Syzlak

No penalty, clearly not trying to hit ball, clearly no intent, was a practice stroke. The guy who got a penalty was Russell Knox 2 weeks ago. Like you said he was at address, Wolff wasn't.

You can see it on the pgatour website. Go to the leaderboard then click on his name. Then click the 3D button and you will see a fly over of each hole and where each shot was, if there was video of a shot you can see it by hitting the play button bottom right. I just went through them all, it was rough.

@KiDD ViDD that rule seems a bit silly. But to be fair, golf's hard enough already 🤣
KiDD ViDD ヶ月 前
Yeah and if you take a full swing at a ball and whiff it. Without hitting the ball at all it counts as a stroke. But If your making a "practice" stroke and hit the ball it doesn't count. Gotta love golf.

He is "feeling" the line of the putt also, trying to get the perfect speed in his mind, so it makes alot of sense.

Rules can be changed and if that particular rule proves to be problematic it can be changed again. If Matt Wolff somehow got an unfair advantage due to the rule change it did not show up in his score.

Stupid rule even with marking and picking up. There should not even be a rule to pick up the ball until its in the hole. defeats the entire purpose of golf

@Rob Moore He did not intend to hit it, so it is just put back in the same place, no penalty. Same as if you are on the tee and practicing a few swings and knock the ball off the tee, you just put it back and go again, no penalty.

If he caused the ball in play to move without marking it, then it should definitely count. Why should this putt be an exception to the rule? Why does he look so disappointed then if it doesn't matter?
