It seems to be an epidemic as of late but it is a hard subject to crack down on because ultimately only the player can decide if they are healthy enough to continue on in an event. Unfortunately the WD often occurs when the player is injured and the score starts ballooning. I know the PGA Tour requires players to give a reason for WD but it is easy to say it's my back or my wrist and be on your way. I am curious as to others opinion on this and if you have any ideas for steps the PGA Tour could look at to crackdown on withdraws for no reason other than bad play or should players be allowed to WD for whatever reason they choose, injury or poor play. I personally think first you have to give the benefit of the doubt to the player as they are the only one that knows their level of pain and their tolerance to that pain. But I can see the reason of irk of fans who want to see a player on friday but they WD with an alleged injury on Thursday after shooting 80 and being out of the tournament. But as someone who has paid to play in many amateur events, I feel that ultimately it is the players decision to withdraw regardless of their reason as they are the one that pays the "entry fee" to compete in each event. Who am I to tell someone how to spend their money? I especially look forward to your opinion on this Ken.
