    YankeeJim:

    He was on the fringe for that shot. They even replayed it in slow motion to show how he just scuffed the grass.

    I never saw that replay... my bad

    LOL

    It's actually debatable where it was because they're calling it the green. Heh, Golf Digest says you might get suspended from your club for trying it. LOL

    congrats Gary Woodland

    I am surprised the "haters" here have not jumped all over the fact he used a wedge on the green to save par.

    There is a YouTube video from a few years ago.  Shows Phil Mickelson @ the LA Open and he's using a wedge on the GREEN....there was a sand trap in the middle of the green and he needed to hit his ball over that trap to reach the hole.  His club never even touched the surface of the green and he left his ball about 4 inches from the hole.

    So, surely, using a "wedge" on the green is legal.

    I just watched that video a few minutes ago.....so, it's still there to watch.
