A professional golfer did the right thing while at Q School: He told the truth about playing an unapproved ball over two strokes on one hole.
The only thing more ridiculous about this story is that it is a story. Imagine living in a culture so devoid of truth that someone telling the truth becomes a headline story at ESPN.com. A commenter made this wry observation:
If Hayes didnt have more than $7 million in career earnings, status as a veteran player and past tourney champion, as well as sponsors’ exemptions, he would have kept his mouth shut.
This is no slight to Mr Hayes. He did the right thing. It is a slight to silly news reporters who think that we need to know this sort of stuff and that telling the truth is news. Oh, wait. It is news. My bad.
