How many of you saw Ernie Els take four shots to get out of a Castle Stuart bunker on the sixth on Thursday? And how many saw him ground the club in in the bunker? Well apparently enough viewers (that would be 1) to email in to the European Tour did to warrant senior referee Andy McFee whisking him away to the TV complex to review the footage.
Following review Els wasn't penalized but it all again begs the question whether TV viewers should be allowed referee golf tournaments from their armchair.
Els said he was ''digging a grave'' on the sixth. If the Tour continues to take its ruling from viewers, it might be digging its own.
