Teeing Off: Who Is to Blame for Rules Violations?

Bacon: This past weekend was full of sports action; Novak Djokovic went five sets with an unsuspecting foe, the 49ers took down your Falcons on the road and the Baltimore Ravens pulled off an enormous upset to advance to the Super Bowl. But one thing was concluded before the weekend began; Tiger Woods would not be playing the weekend in Abu Dhabi, but not because he didn't score well enough to do so. Nope, Tiger was cut because of a rules violation on Friday. if you missed what happened, check it out right here, but basically Tiger took a drop from an area that he wasn't allowed to take a drop from. He called over playing partner Martin Kaymer and he confirmed it was okay, even though it wasn't. So I ask you, in rules violations such as this one, who is to blame? Tiger? His caddie? Kaymer? A rules official for not being right there to help out?
