Interesting contrast between Golf Channel, a business partner with all major golf tours, and Sports Illustrated. 

SI allowed one of its reporters, Michael Bamberger, to become part of a tournament when he questioned the spot of a drop chosen by Michelle Wie in 2005.  Because he didn't bring up the infraction until the next day she was DQ'd for signing an incorrect scorecard.

Golf Channel kicks its reporter out for merely breaking protocol.  I wonder what the Golf Channel would do if one of its reporters wanted to pull a Bamberger.

The GC has gotts to keep kissing that corporate ass ...

Like any lig, the tour just wants good news "reported" -- luckily for them, there's not as many independent reporters as the nfl, mlb and the nba have to deal with. The others are trying their damndest though -- give 'em time.
