Code of Honor

Think about it. In what other sport do players call rules infractions on themselves? In most team sports, an advantage is gained by a crafty player who can break or bend the rules and get away with it. Not so in golf. It is the duty of every golfer to play by the rules. The game adheres to a strict code of self-policing found in no other sport. In golf, the only person a cheater beats is himself. The famous quote by the immortal Bobby Jones is relevant here. When he was applauded for calling a penalty on himself, Jones replied, "You might as well praise a man for not robbing a bank.”
