Woody Austin given four-shot penalty for exceeding golf club limit
Woody Austin was assessed a 4-stroke penalty at the PGA Championship on Friday after having 15 clubs in his bag while on the third hole.
Austin violated Rule 4-4 for exceeding the 14-club limit. The penalty calls for two strokes for each hole where the penalty occurred, up to a four-stroke limit.
Austin added two strokes to his score for the first and second holes, which turned his par and bogey into a double bogey and triple bogey.
Austin, who has won four times on the PGA Tour, shot a 69 in the first round and was 4-over for his round at the turn.
