Another tournament, another new rule violation on the PGA Tour.
Thursday was Alex Cejka who was the culprit. The book he used to read the greens of the Honda Classic was too big.
Among several new rules that came into effect this year, the green books mapped must be limited to a scale of three eighths of an inch to five meters. In addition, a green book or a green paper should be limited to a size of 7 inches by 4.25 inches.
Cejka was deemed too big, which resulted in his disqualification at the 14th hole. He was an au pair at the time.
"It was brought to the committee's knowledge that Alex could use some old green reading material, so we had to check it out," said Robby Ware, PGA Tour Rules Official. , according to Golf Channel.
"Alex was basically using an old notebook and old green readings that did not fit the size limit, and the new limits are obviously much smaller."
The new rules of golf have been a topic of discussion on the circuit this year. Last week at the WGC-Mexican Championship, Rickie Fowler failed to take a proper fall at knee height in the second round and was sentenced to a penalty of one shot.
