ON NELLY KORDA’S CONCEDED BIRDIE, A STRANGE RULES CONTROVERSY BREWS AT SOLHEIM CUP.
Korda curled a 20-foot eagle attempt to the right side of the cup, giving her 10 seconds to see if the ball would drop in.
The catch is that the other side must likewise wait the allotted time to see if the ball falls in. But, after determining that the ball was not going to drop—it was plainly not moving or oscillating—Madelene Europe’s Sagstrom picked it up and gave it back to Korda, who was still on her knees after witnessing her putt miss by a sliver. With a 4 on Nanna Koerstz Madsen’s birdie, Europe was already in.
