Sounds like he was but on observation.
There are a few players in my club that usually always come in winners on team events and during winter with placing in. They are pretty much regarded as cheating ****s.
In recent years they get cut on observation every winter and then reverted back for the summer, when you regularly see their names.
I'm pretty confident they are cheats, as is pretty much everyone else.
And in team events all play together, conviniantly always winning prizes.
I always find it sad, ironic and pretty pathetic that when they get cut, they have a big dirty moan that its against the rules, and they shouldnt be getting cut with placing in.
Simply adding more weight to the fact they are cheating ****s.
Golf is a self improvement game, the biggest reward is your handicapp coming down.
Unfortunately the club is a bit weak when it comes to simply calling them out. I'd very much like for one of the commitee to play with these players on a regular basis to ensure they are on the straight and narrow.
Its seems to happen in every club, unfortunately it seems every club is just shy about calling them out : /
