Almost certainly one of the strangest stories you will hear this year in golf. It involves a kid who goes by the name of Blayne Barber, who did something that can only happen in this ridiculous game.

He played the final two rounds as his caddie was sure the leaf hadn’t moved. “I continued to pray about it and think about it, and I just did not have any peace about it,” Barber said. “I knew I needed to do the right thing. I knew it was going to be disqualification.” More >
