Golf always finishes a tournament on sunday. People should stop trying to redefine golf.

There are a lot of things that shouldn't be done "just because we've always done it that way"

And I'm not even a Mormon!

Yah... Golf always finishes on Sunday... Ummm... Except the Memorial... And the Utah State Am... and the US Open if it is tied... And any other tournament if darkness becomes an issue.

Hmmm. Maybe a Monday finish wouldn't have been such a big deal after all. The only thing that would have been necessary is the grounds crew which was there anyway and maybe 4 followers for the 2-some. Not a real big issue. In a place like Utah a Monday finish should have been an option for the event anyway.

"because we've always done it" is about as poor reason as someone can give

The Millers received strong criticsm and deserved every bit of it. They left hundreds of volunteers and thousands of hours of work devoid of a true champion.

Todd's decision was self-serving grandstanding and nothing more. His father's comments afterwards were even more ridiculous and hypocritical. Todd should never have entered the event. He knows that and so does his father, who makes a very good living working and playing golf on Sundays. I really am tired of the religious people who want to follow the dictates of their religion without sacrificing anything. By that I mean they want things to be done differently so they can follow their religion and participate in events like this golf tournament. You can't have it both ways. Religion requires sacrifice, if you are unwilling to sacrifice things that are important to you for your religious beliefs then don't - just leave everyone else out of it.

Pathetic time to withdraw from a tournament. Go play in a church tournament or read the schedule before the tournament begins.
