In an odd twist over the weekend, 22 year old Lexi Thompson lost her 3 shot lead in the ANA Inspiration tournament on Sunday after a TV viewer sent in a video complaint showing her misplace a ball by 1 inch on the 17th green. On Sunday, officials approached Thompson with the news that she was penalized 2 points for the misplaced ball and another 2 point stroke penalty for improperly signing her scorecard. Incredibly, she didn’t let the news rattle her, but it wasn’t enough for her to win. Social media erupted with fans expressing their outrage that a TV viewer could weigh in and change the course of a tournament. Even Tiger Woods wrote on Twitter, “Viewers at home should not be officials wearing stripes.”No comments
