Expensive Marker For Stenson
CARNOUSTIE, Scotland -- The cost of whacking a tee marker at the British Open?
That's how much Sweden's Henrik Stenson was fined for whacking a tee marker on the eighth hole at the British Open during Friday's second round. Stenson swung at the marker in disgust after a poor shot, taking out half of it. He was fined 500 pounds -- the equivalent of $1,028 -- under the European Tour's disciplinary procedure.
Stenson made triple bogey on the par-3 hole and wound up shooting a 5-over 76. He missed the cut by one stroke.
