CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Sung Kang doesn’t plan to handle rulings any differently because he doesn’t think he did anything wrong when fellow PGA Tour player Joel Dahmen accused him of taking a bad drop three weeks ago.
Kang and Dahmen were playing in the final round at the Quicken Loans National when Kang’s second shot to the par-5 10th went into a hazard. Kang took a drop near the green. Dahmen contended the ball crossed the hazard much farther back, and without video evidence, the rules official sided with the player.
It came to light when Dahmen, when asked on Twitter why the group behind them played through, said, “Kang cheated. He took a bad drop from a hazard. I argued until I was blue. I lost.
