An honest golfer

To the tune of about 400,000 dollars. That is how much golfer Brian Davis forfeited by calling a two stroke penalty on himself during a playoff last Sunday in the Verizon Heritage PGA tournament. This allowed Jim Furyk to win the tournament and Davis to come in second.

It was the right thing to do and he walked away with the second place winnings which totaled 615,000 dollars, but you still have to admire the man. They say golf is a gentleman's game and on Sunday Brian Davis proved it by acting like a gentleman. There should be more players like him in the sport.
