Haotong Li, a professional golf player, paid him top three – and the six-figure prize he had to get for his performance at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic – standing in the wrong place.
Cady, Mike Burrow, violated the rule that came into force on January 1, prohibiting the cadets from standing on or near the expansion of the game line behind the player's ball.
Burrow has committed a green violation in the 18th hole during the last round of the tournament – which has led Li to be the first player to be punished by the new code, according to the Golf Week. Rule 10.2b (4) states that Kady is not allowed to "intentionally stand at or near the extension of the line to behind the player's ball when the player begins to take Item ] For stroke and move . "
Li, winner of last year's tournament, sank three feet on the last green,
But Burrough's wrong move cost him two strokes and put him in 12th with a score of 73.
Four players who tied for third place won € 135,774 (about $ 155,248) each and Li made € 45,234 ($ 51,722) for its twelfth place, according to Golf News Net. The event is part of the European tour, which pays the golfers by percentage and distribution distribution, with the first winner earning 16.67% of the total.
Twitter users judge the controversial appeal.
"This is so absurdly marginal, the player has to take advantage of the doubt.The changes to the rules are largely due to the spirit of the game and the player's integrity not this pedanticity [sic] …." professional golfer Paul McGinley  CEO Keith Pelley said in a statement Monday that while the conversation is accurate, according to the rules, the result is not fair to Li. "Everyone I have talked about believed, as I do, that there was no malice or intent from Li Haotong, nor did he gain any advantage from this or the actions of his split second time," Pelly said. "The consequent two-shot penalty, which moved him from T3 to the T12, was, in my view, grossly unfair."
