Jack Whitaker: DQ
Gary McCord: DQ
Ben Wright: Free drop
Johnny Miller: Free drop
Kelly Tilghman: OB, penalized stroke and distance
Richard Boxall and Bruce Critchley: Free drop

The "gaffes" listed aren't really an apples to apples comparison. However, I do think we should take David at his word with his apology. It was a huge mistake for sure but lets face it we all do things that we regret. It's how we handle things after that makes all the difference. And I think David has done the right thing here.
