English PGA pro Brian Davis displayed another example of why golf is so highly respected in the world of sports.

While playing the 18th hole in a sudden death playoff with Jim Furyk he called a penalty on himself of two shots because his club touched a piece of grass on his backswing, which was in fact a loose impediment, had it been growing naturally he would have been ok. No body else saw the incident, not even the rules official that was there.

This was a huge chance for Davis to get his first PGA tour win, he had earlier made a birdie three at the same hole to make the play off.

This is the attitude other players in  sports should display, get back to the integrity of the game, and play all our great sports with  respect, honesty and the right attitude, then we will see who are the true champions.
