Add another weird DQ to rules woes

Rules infractions have gone viral.

How else do you explain yet another unusual infraction resulting in the disqualification of two LPGA pros at the CN Canadian Women’s Open?

Shi Hyn Ahn and Il Mi Chung were DQ’d after they mistakenly played each other’s golf balls on the 18th green late Thursday. That's three unusual infractions in three weeks with Dustin Johnson's debacle from the camouflaged bunker at the PGA Championship, Juli Inkster's DQ for warming up with a swing weight on her club in the middle of a round at the Safeway Classic and this week's golf- ball mix up in Canada. Actually, if you include Jim Furyk's getting bounced from The Barclays for sleeping past his pro-am tee time as a quirky (PGA Tour) rules infraction, it's four headline-grabbing gaffes in three weeks.
