I can’t for the life of me understand how anyone who watched the video of Lexi Thompson marking her ball and replacing it in the 3rd round of last week’s ladies’ major championship could think that she did not cheat. Arguing that the ruling never should have happened because viewers shouldn’t be allowed to call in rules infractions, or that there should be a time limit to calling an infraction (there is, and it’s until the last shot is holed and the trophy is awarded) is like the Trump administration claiming the focus should be on the leaks and not on the Russian interference in the election. People, please, watch the video! She picks the ball up and blatantly improves her lie! She doesn’t clean the ball, she doesn’t line it up differently, it never gets more than two inches off the ground and she never takes her eye off the small area around the ball. She searches for a place to put the ball that she likes better than the one it’s sitting in, and she moves it there. She deserved to be disqualified.
