But the fact is: he signed an incorrect scorecard in what is very likely a knowing violation of the rules. And even if he didn't know, he is responsible for that knowledge. DQ. Period.

While I agree he should be DQ'd, because anyone else not named Tiger Woods would have been DQ'd, the fact that he stated his transgression in an interview suggests he did not know he violated the rule. Either he did not know the rule, he's incredibly stupid for his admission, or he's incredibly smart with the admission - gambling the Rule 33 infraction would be applied instead. I doubt he thought about Rule 33 when he took the drop, so I'd bet on he did not know. He got off the hook because the commission made a determination of no infraction hastily. Maybe next time, they'll take a little longer with that determination.
