One Great Season
When Roberto De Vicenzo signed his improper score card at the 1968 Masters, I was just a kid learning to play golf. My dad and I watched it together and after that ruling he explained it to me. I thought the game was stupid and almost walked away from it. Problem was, I could hit the golf ball better than my friends and I was getting pretty good at age 12.
When Dustin Johnson screwed up late in Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship, I tried to explain the rules to my wife and felt a lot like my dad.
"That's just stupid," she said Sunday.
"That's just stupid," littly Johnny said back in 1968.
