BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) — Justin Thomas wanted to honor the spirit of the game. His reward was a chunky wedge from a bad lie and a big fat bogey on the scorecard.

Thomas asked for a ruling, but confessed to the official that the drain didn’t interfere with his swing. That honesty cost him a chance at relief. Thomas had to reach over the drain and bend down to make contact for a shot into a bunker short of the green.
