Cartesian Ruling

In a creative use of a pair of alignment sticks from Richard Sterne’s bag, a European Tour official was able to assure Sterne that he was properly taking his relief drop from the cart path on the 18th at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship today.

Crossing the two alignment sticks as an effective protractor the official made sure Sterne’s free drop would be no closer to the hole.

Now Sterne just had to remember to drop the ball from knee high and avoid a penalty from the new rules for 2019.

Never realized that Rene Descartes was a member of the R & A.
