ARGENTINA’S Roberto De Vicenzo entered the final round of the 1968 Masters two strokes off the lead. De Vicenzo fired a seven-under 65 to extend the tournament to an 18- hole play-off between him and Bob Goalby the next day. Or so he thought. • Watch what happened here. SCORECARD CARE 1 THE differences between a loose impediment (Rule 23) and an obstruction can be confusing. The usual guideline is if it is man- made it’s an obstruction, if God made it it’s a loose impediment. Nick Faldo got caught out during the 1994 Alfred Dunhill Masters in Bali. Leading by six shots with six holes to play, the Englishman was disqualified for an incident that had occurred the day before when he removed a piece of coral from a bunker. FALDO'S COSTLY CORAL CALAMITY 4 WHEN you see this, you’ll think twice about where you make your practice swing.Playing the third round of the 2013 BMW Championship, Justin Rose was penalised one-stroke after he made a practice swing behind his ball and the small divot hit the back of his ball causing it to move. ROSE & SOD 2 KIWI pro Nick Gillespie was atop the leaderboard with a seven under 65 at the end of his first round at the Victorian Open in 2013. But he wasn’t required for the second round after he forgot to sign his card and was later notified he had been disqualified. 3 THE FORGETFUL PRO THE differences Tiger Woods might rather forget 2013, at least for all the rules dramas he seemed to get himself into. In the BMW Championship, Tiger Woods moved some leaves and a twig before hitting a shot. Rules officials were later shown a HD video, which showed that the ball moved. Woods, when questioned, maintained it only oscillated, but was docked two strokes. Two months later, the USGA and R&A announced players will no longer be penalised when a ball’s movement could be detected with the use of enhanced technologies. TIGER'S OSCILLATE-GATE 5
