As for Grace, who tied for 9th after a back nine of 40 on Sunday, he explained his position – “You are always going to get some good vibes and some bad vibes, that is just the name of the game. There were a couple of players that said some stuff but a couple of guys came up to me on the putting green. Peter Hanson said he had a situation like that yesterday and he didn’t even think of asking for the ruling.
“He said to me this morning if he knew what he knows now, if he ever gets in that situation then he might ask. I am sure I am not going to be the last one. I don’t think I did anything wrong. The rules official was there and he made the call so that is the end of the story.”
