Van Sickle: Garrity scores bonus points for making the first mention of the Magna Carta in the roundtable. Class this place up.
Shipnuck: How complicated is it to drop from a water hazard? Tiger has done that a million times. The green coats messed this up. Tiger took a bad drop and should've been disqualified. This was a cut-and-dried situation, but Ridley and his cronies came up with a split-the-baby solution. The Masters missed a golden opportunity to say, We don't care if it's Tiger Woods. No one is above the law. Instead, we got this fishy back-room deal.
Bamberger: They had it right for half a day. The 14-year-old kid failed on the clock, badly, and he got a penalty for slow play. Then they got it wrong on Tiger. They blew it.
Shipnuck: That's why it was so jarring. They staked out the moral high ground, but because it was Tiger Woods, they let it pass. Just like they gave Ernie Els a drop in the trees and let Rory off after he kicked the sand. They bend the rules to protect players they like.
Bamberger: They've been overcompensating for Roberto de Vicenzo for 40 years.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE FABULOUS PLAYERS FINISH IN THE 21ST CENTURY?
Bamberger: I like the one Paul Goydos won.
Van Sickle: Goydos didn't win. He lost in a playoff to Sergio García.
Bamberger: I liked that one until the last part.
