It’s All Good for Baddeley

Aaron Baddeley posted a pair of 64s on the weekend for a come-from-behind victory at the FBR Open in Scottsdale. Badds rallied with three birdies in the final four holes to overtake 54-hole leader Jeff Quinney.

John Rollins finished second after firing a 63. Quinney was third. Rollins leads the FedEx Cup points standings.

Ernie Els beat archrival Tiger Woods but lost the tournament. Henrik Stenson closed with a 68 to nip Els (71) by a shot. Woods (69) finished two back.

I would swear he moved his last putt. He marked the lag putt, then moved his marker by a clubhead to get it out of the way. He placed the ball where his marker was without moving it back. I think Rollins will eventually end up the winner.

Wow. Now that's interesting. That would be an awful way to lose a tournament.

Anyone else see Badds putt out on 18?

I had to rewind and watch it again, but I agree. He didn't replace his mark before putting out.

Too late now. The rules don't allow reversals after the results are totaled and the trophies are handed out. I bet he moved it back when we weren't looking, though.

I can't imagine him not moving it back, Luke. Of course, I didn't see it.

It seems that even his playing partner, John Rollins, would remind him to move his marker back. You'd hate to let a guy blow a tournament that way.

Don't believe everything you think you see - your point proves that eyewitness evidence can be unreliable. Baddeley did move his marker back - the TV coverage didn't catch this.
