Accused of slow play, Patrick Cantlay had ignited social networks in the weeks following the Masters. This time, it's a video of his "forced" finish in The Open that amuses Internet users.

Patrick Cantlay, results

On this video, which brings a lot of smiles on Instagram, we see the American Patrick Cantlay trying to get out of the rough at Royal Liverpool where his face-off got lost.

It was the end of the movement of the Californian, winner of the Fedex Cup in 2021, which surprised viewers. Indeed, while the ball has left his clubface for several seconds and Cantlay's swing seems to be well and truly over, he seems to "pull himself together" to lift his right foot so as to give his finish a style more academic.

The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played. They are jointly written and maintained by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body for golf worldwide, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are governed by the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA, oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision has been in force since January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and manages the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.

The rules of golf are relatively complicated compared to other sports because they apply outdoors, close to nature and animals. Respect for the rules is a basic element in the game of golf which, almost always based on self-control and the free conscience of the players, often sees distorted results, sometimes consciously, but often unconsciously or lightly, due to non-compliance by many players of the game rules.

In addition to the rules, golf adheres to a code of conduct, known as etiquette, which generally means playing your game with due respect to the golf course and other players. Etiquette is an essential component of this sport.
