R&A to review rules and procedures

The Royal & Ancient plans to review its procedures to avoid another freak incident in which Mark Roe and Jesper Parnevik were disqualified from the British Open for failing to swap scorecards.

Roe had a 67 and was at 1-over 214. He would have been two shots off the lead and paired with Tiger Woods in the final round. Instead, he put Parnevik's score of 81 on his card, while Parnevik put Roe's score on his card.

``We'd be crazy not to review our procedures thoroughly because incidents of this kind are very undesirable,'' Royal & Ancient secretary Peter Dawson said Monday, wrapping up a weird week at Royal St. George's.

``The rules of golf, however, are unlikely to be adjusted because of this incident,'' he said. ``People are responsible for their own score, and if you try to write a rule about that, then you cannot actually write one which says it just applies to people who are on television.''
