Letter: Clinton precedent reaches golf courses

Clinton precedent reaches golf courses

To the editor:

And so it begins ...

Good news for golfers. There will no longer be a penalty stroke for hitting a ball into the water or out of bounds.

The USGA, the R&A and the PGA, after a private meeting with FBI Director James Comey, have recommended that your opponent must prove that you intended to hit the ball into these hazards in order for there to be a penalty. Carelessness or ignorance is not intent.

No intent, no penalty stroke.

William Barkin, Williamstown
