Cameron Smith got a 2 shot penalty for playing a shot just on the red line beside the water yesterday but was given the penalty today just before he teed off, surely thatโ€™s not right?
Should he not off been disqualified for signing for a wrong score card also?

The penalty was assessed after he'd signed the card so he can't be dq'd for it.
The timing isn't good but he did break the rule...

If you find the pis Smith was standing on the edge of the drop into the lake..I'm guessing the referee was on the other side of the green and wasn't able to see the position of the ball.
Should he have made sure?
Possibly but Smith should have realised.

They looked at the video, asked him his opinion, he said the ball was on the line, so he got a 2 shot penalty.
His mistake, which as Iโ€™ve read, he accepted.

Itโ€™s a tough one, the referee is getting paid to do a job and he probably should of made sure but Cameron should off probably realised himself as well ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

100% of the responsibility is on the player.
