Golfs governing bodies have responded to Dustin Johnsons penalty at the U.S. Open by introducing a local rule that will waive the one-shot penalty if a ball moves on the putting green by accident.The local rule, effective in January, applies only to accidental movement on the putting green of the golf ball and a ball marker.Johnson was lining up a par putt on the fifth hole of the final round at Oakmont when his ball moved slightly and he backed away. He said he didnt make it move, but after the USGA studied video and consulted the rule book, he eventually was given a one-shot penalty because it was ruled that his actions caused the ball to move. Even with the penalty, he closed with a 69 and won by three shots.The local rule was not a reaction to that one incident at Oakmont. Golfs leading experts have been meeting the last five years on a rules modernization project. Thomas Pagel, the USGAs senior rules director, said they had determined even before the U.S. Open that the rule for such accidental movement needed to be changed.The Johnson ruling only sped up the process.This has been talked about for quite some time, Pagel said. The Dustin Johnson ruling was the last of many uncomfortable rulings weve had with balls or ball markers that moved on a putting green. We had identified a solution and language as the broader rules modernization. This motivated us to say its in the best interest of the game as opposed to waiting for the next set of revisions.The Rules of Golf are revised once every four years, with the next revision due in 2020. Pagel could not say when the entire rules modernization project will be completed, though a rough draft is likely to be released in the spring, followed by a lengthy period of feedback.For now, any accidental movement of the ball or ball marker on the putting green will require the player to replace it, but without a penalty shot. A local rule is an option for tournaments to use, though the USGA and R&A said it has been welcomed by the major tours worldwide, the PGA of America and Masters.The local rule already has one fan.I think its a really good thing for golf, Johnson said in a text message.Johnsons ruling was the most famous, mainly because of how it was carried out. He was notified on the 12th tee that he might face a penalty and that he could review it with officials after the round. That meant Johnson had to play the final seven holes of the U.S. Open without knowing if he would get a penalty shot. It ultimately didnt matter, though even after his three-shot victory, Johnson did not think he deserved a penalty shot.Ian Poulter in 2012 at the Dubai World Championship had a 30-foot birdie putt in a playoff. As he went to replace his ball, it fell from his hand and hit the edge of his marker, causing it to flip over. He was given a one-shot penalty and wound up losing to Robert Karlsson, who had a short birdie putt.Under the local rule, Poulter would not have been penalized.In another example, Davis Love III had a short par putt on the 17th hole at the 1997 Players Championship when his putter nudged the ball during his practice stroke. Even though his club made contact with the ball, he would not be penalized under the local rule because it would be an accident.What is an accident?Anything that is not intentional, Pagel said.He said an intentional act would include intent, such as picking up the ball without marking it.The local rule applies to 18-2 and 18-3 (ball at rest moved) and 20-1 (lifting and marking). The rules havent changed, but the penalty would be waived.We still need to figure out what caused the ball to move, Pagel said. In those instances, it more likely than not was an accident that caused it to move. We still have to have that discussion. But the discussions are less contentious when theres no longer a penalty part of that conversation. Cheap Nike Air Max Tn Womens . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Cheap Nike Tns Online .

DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. Nike Tns Sale . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. CLEVELAND -- Joe Flaccos return has the Baltimore Ravens looking more like themselves.The Browns, well, they havent changed at all.Flacco, whose 2015 season was cut short by a knee injury and surgery, overcame a pair of interceptions by throwing two touchdown passes to Mike Wallace, and the Ravens rallied from a 20-point deficit in the first quarter to beat snake-bitten Cleveland 25-20 on Sunday.In danger of getting blown out early, the Ravens (2-0) blocked an extra-point and returned it 63 yards for a rare, two-point defensive conversion to ignite their comeback against a Cleveland team with 17 rookies on its roster.It wasnt pretty, it wasnt great. We werent perfect, said Flacco, who passed for 302 yards and led the second-largest comeback in Baltimore history. Do you want to play that kind of game in September? Not necessarily, but every single game in January and come February, where we hope to be, is going to be like that. Over the years, these games have just taken us to that next level and really made us mentally tough so when we get into those games, we dont blink.The Browns (0-2), meanwhile, are running out of quarterbacks .Josh McCown showed his toughness by playing every snap despite an injured left shoulder, but the 37-year-old couldnt lift his arm following the game and could miss time.We will see, said McCown, who was replacing the injured Robert Griffin III. My mindset is that everything will be all right and we will move ahead business as usual. It is just a matter of letting the doctors and trainers do their job, and my expectations are to play some ball.If McCowns injury wasnt enough, Cleveland also lost starting center Cam Erving, who suffered a bruised lung and will remain hospitalized.Flaccos injury was the final blow to a 5-11 finish last season for the Ravens, who are accustomed to playing in the postseason. But now with its cool-as-ice quarterback back, Baltimore is again a team to be reckoned with.But the Ravens better avoid the kind of slow start they had in their first road game. Just over 10 minutes after kickoff, the Browns (0-2) got an 85-yard TD run by Isaiah Crowell and were up by 20, stunning not only Baltimore but more than 60,000 Cleveland fans who came expecting more of the same from the home team.As the Browns built their lead, there was plenty of frustration on Baltimores sideline where wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. and linebacker C.J. Mosley threw their helmets and defensive coordinator Dean Pees huddled his players for a fiery lecture.Flacco was never flustered, but he envisioned Ravens fans aat home sitting there cussing on the couch.dddddddddddd. Were doing the same thing on the bench.He did something about it, though, as the Ravens trimmed Clevelands lead to 20-12 at halftime before Flacco connected with Wallace on a 17-yard TD pass early in the third to pull Baltimore within one. Justin Tucker then kicked two of his three field goals in the fourth quarter and C.J. Mosley intercepted McCown at the goal line with 13 seconds left.It was a good way to end it with the defense making the last play, Mosley said. Thats not the way you want to start.Here are some other things we learned as Baltimore improved to 15-2 against Cleveland under coach John Harbaugh.CENTER INJURED: Erving was immobilized and taken by ambulance to University Hospitals after succumbing to cramps late in the fourth quarter.The Browns announced Sunday night that Erving had a pulmonary contusion. Its likely he will miss several games.John Greco filled in on the final few snaps for Erving, a first-round pick who struggled last season.PITTAS RETURN: Slowed by hip injuries the past two seasons, Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta appears to be back in form after finishing with nine catches for 102 yards.Pitta twice dislocated his hip and his absence has deprived Flacco of one of his favorite targets.He looked like himself, Flacco said. I think hes going to get more and more comfortable as the year goes on. We just have to keep him healthy.KESSLER ON DECK: If McCown cant play, the Browns will turn their offense over to rookie Cody Kessler. The former USC standout said he has a better grasp of Clevelands offense and will be ready if called upon.PRYORS PENALTY: The Browns may have gotten another bad break when wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was called for taunting with 27 seconds left, preventing McCown from taking a few shots at the end zone from closer range.Pryor caught a pass while tumbling out of bounds at Baltimores 10, and as he got up, he flipped the ball toward Ravens defensive back Lardarius Webb, brushing his shoulder. While it appeared trivial, a sideline official felt it warranted a penalty and nullified the 20-yard pickup.Pryor felt he was innocent.Im just saying theres other people that can catch a ball and spin it and look at players in the face, Pryor said. But if I get up and drop the ball -- clearly I wasnt trying to drop it on nobody.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online Stitched Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Outlet College Jerseys For Sale Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys For Sale Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
