Over half of tour pros say they've seen other players do what?!

Anonymous Tour Pro Survey

More than half of all PGA Tour pros have seen a fellow player cheat during a tournament round.

According to the latest edition of Golf Magazine’s "Anonymous PGA Tour Pro Survey", 56% of players surveyed said that they had witnessed a playing partner purposefully break the rules.

One player remarked that they had seen it happen “multiple times”, adding: “The Tour is a joke when it comes to enforcing the rules.”

• EXCLUSIVE - Martin Kaymer and Craig Connelly split

• American duo confirm Dunhill Links participation

Another said: “I’ve seen guys bend the rules and mark their ball improperly.”

To a man, every player polled said that they had never not reported themselves for breaking a rule.
