  • It wouldn’t be the Masters without a rules controversy – though the Twitter “experts” could use a mulligan on this one.
  • Video emerged of two-time major winner Collin Morikawa appearing to move his ball closer to the sixth hole at Augusta National as he was lining up for a putt, then moving his ball marker up behind the ball.
  • Many on Twitter quickly accused Morikawa of cheating, trying to get a more favorable distance for his putt (which he missed, and made par on the hole).
