Now This Shows Character

At a time when many talk about the unlimited greed of professional athletes, occasionally a story like this comes along. This one courtesy of ESPN.

J.P Hayes says anyone else on the PGA Tour in his situation "would have done the same thing."

During the second stage of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament last week in Texas, Hayes discovered that on two shots on one hole, he had unwittingly used a prototype golf ball not approved for competition by the United States Golf Association.

No one would have known. And a full-time spot on the PGA Tour in 2009 was on the line. But Hayes, honoring the tradition of a game where the players police themselves, turned himself in and was disqualified.

You can read the entire article here. Suffice to say, for anyone to admit a mistake when no will even be aware of that mistake, shows a lot of character.

Thank you J.P. Hayes!
