Jim Nantz also said, if it is a bunker, doesn't he have a right to rake it?


If he's DQ'd, Dustin will never live this down between the US Open and now this.

I don't even know how they can call that a bunker, there were people everywhere.

Johnson goes from winning it all to being disqualified.

Yes. People were clearly standing in it when the ball came down. Why didnt officials do something?

Johnson should be furious, how could you know that's a bunker? It just looks like ****ing dirt.

I play golf religiously but this is where the rules of golf suck. I want Bubba to win but Dustin deserves to be in the playoff. Just imagine if he made that putt on 18 which would of been for the win, and then have the rules official tell him the bad news.

I don't believe their will be, not many courses have bunkers outside the ropes. This is sort of an exception, and theres no way they will change a rule due to an exception. The PGA comes back here in 2015 (and Ryder Cup in 2020), it will be interesting if their is a local rule added, or if they even let patrons have access to walking in a bunker

That is such a ****ing ******** call, totally blown on the PGA's part. Not many courses where that is considered a bunker, if they knew it was going to be a problem they should have had a rules official right on site to notify DJ it was a bunker before he approached it.

Well, I'd have to think that people won't be allowed to take up space on what is supposed to be the golf course.

The guy has already come back pretty much from doing what Nick Watney did today, after what just happened if it were me, I'd be thinking I just wasn't meant to win one of these.
