Masters: Twitter reaction to Tiger Woods two-stroke penalty
The Twitter reaction to the two-stroke penalty that Tiger Woods was assessed on Saturday morning was pretty amazing.
There is no greater forum for immediate (and sometimes outrageous) reaction from the public on a topic at hand than Twitter.
So when it was announced that Tiger Woods would be assessed a two-stroke penalty on Saturday morning instead of being disqualified, Twitter nearly melted down. Here are some of the best (that I'm allowed to post) along with reaction from some fellow pros:
From Augusta's statement we know that the possible infringement was detected before he finished the round. Should have been dealt with then.— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) April 13, 2013
Two shot penalty official. I like this ruling because he took an illegal drop but no official brought it to his attn.— Hunter Mahan (@HunterMahan) April 13, 2013
Usually masters drama starts back 9 Sunday, little early this year I guess, fair ruling but feel for guys pre new rule. C'mon Aussies!!— Nick O'Hern (@nickohern) April 13, 2013
No DQ for Tiger but a two-stroke penalty? Roberto De Vicenzo, show up at the Butler Cabin and fetch your green jacket.— Dan Jenkins (@danjenkinsgd) April 13, 2013
How do you stitch an asterisk on a green jacket? Asking for a friend.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) April 13, 2013
Am I the only one who woke up seeing "DQ" on a bunch of tweets and thought that something had happened w Dairy Queen?— andyroddick (@andyroddick) April 13, 2013

I'll say this, if I was playing the Masters today I'd duct tape a USGA rules book to my thigh.— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) April 13, 2013
We'll have an exclusive interview with the viewer who tattled on Tiger just as soon as he's done watching "Saved by the Bell."— Joe Kovac Jr. (@joekovacjr) April 13, 2013
