The 2013 was an interesting one to see the least. While we saw the first Australian to ever win the green jacket in Adam Scott, as well as 14-year-old prodigy Guan Tianlang tear it up, it was once again Tiger Woods who made the most headlines.

And no, it didn’t have to do with porn stars… or winning, but instead an infamous illegal drop in which he was penalized. This ill-advised error could very well be what stopped him from finishing on top as he failed to recover.

However what most people don’t know is that at first, no one even knew he committed the illegal play. In fact it wasn’t until an unidentified man, aka a snitch, ratted poor Tiger out. What a piece of sh*t! The only question that has remained since the tournament is who was it? Furthermore, how did he get in touch with PGA officials and get the news to them?

It has now been revealed that the person to blame for knocking Tiger out was none other than fellow tour golfer David Eger. He recently sat down with Sports Illustrated and explained how it all exactly went down.

“I could see there was a divot — not a divot, a divot hole — when he played the shot the second time that was not there the first time. I played it again and again. I could see that the fairway was spotless the first time he played the shot and there was that divot hole, maybe three or four feet in front of where he played after the drop.”

From there, the snitch called his buddy who just so happened to be an official at the course. And as we all know, the rest is history.

“[Mickey] Bradley immediately called [competition committee chairman Fred] Ridley and Russell, the veteran PGA Tour administrator who is on the three-man Masters competition committee that is chaired by Ridley, a former U.S. Amateur champion and USGA president. Bradley also forwarded Eger’s text to Russell and Ridley. In his text, Eger wrote that Woods ‘didn’t appear to play by Rule 26-1-a.’ He wrote that he ‘appeared to be 3-4 feet back’ from his divot mark.”

“It should be noted that Eger’s call saved Woods from disqualification, because it spurred Ridley’s incorrect interpretation, which was challenged by Woods’s own comments to ESPN, which enabled Ridley to invoke rule 33-7, the one that allows wrongs to be righted.

What a bunch of punks. In the streets, this is means for a beat down. Leave it to white people to point out every little infraction and make the game boring. When your star player is on the verge of making the ultimate comeback, you don’t just blow up his spot.

Referees make mistakes all of the time in the NBA and NHL but skill always outshines the call. However in Tiger’s case, they made sure he had no chance of coming back. Hence unknown Adam Scott is your winner. Boring! Give the people what they want. Tiger Woods back on top.
