I saw this recently on Golf.com – ‘I was burning inside’: Pro falls prey to PGA Tour rules official’s post-round prank: https://golf.com/news/neimann-falls-prey-pga-tour-official-post-round-prank/. Professional Golf has some serious rules; violate them and you may regret doing so. Slightly longer article.

Pace of play (the slow kind) is a hot talking point on the PGA Tour. But on Sunday, Joaquin Neimann flipped the narrative on its head when, playing solo in the first group of the day at the Tour Championship, he looked more like Usain Bolt than Tommy Bolt.
With nothing but an open course ahead of him at East Lake GC, Neimann and his caddie, Gary Matthews, tightened their laces and made history, needing all of 1 hour and 53 minutes to finish 18 holes. It was the fastest round in Tour Championship history, edging Kevin Na’s 2016 mark by five minutes.
