In a previous post I talked about about sandbaggers (a nice word for cheaters) in state tournaments. Today I’m playing a practice round in preparation for a tournament tomorrow in one of the 3 men’s clubs I’m in.

I found out that a guy who was kicked out of the club for cheating is now back in the club. I’m disappointed in the board for letting this guy back in. He’s been busted cheating on many occasions, one which got him a $450 random skin in the club. It seems he used a “foot wedge” on a hole and wrote himself down for an eagle. Someone saw him do it and he was kicked out of the club two years ago.

I played with this guy once and he’d obviously knocked a ball OB on #12. My friend and I turn around and all the sudden he finds his ball by the green with a really nice lie in the rough. That ball wasn’t there before.

Sad thing is this guy is a +2 handicap and should be able to beat just about anyone without cheating.

So my question (and poll question too) is:

Should cheaters get a 2nd chance?

My opinion: Once a cheat, always a cheat. NO
