Another Golf Player, Elliot Saltman Banned. Time for a Golf Prison?

Update 14/02/2011
Elliot Saltman will not appeal his three month ban from the European Tour, but he denies cheating and any wrongdoing. Saltman has apparently also passed a lie detector test, but he thinks that the current European Tour procedures restrict his ability to appeal the case and he will not be successful.


Just last week we ran an article about Camilo Villegas being disqualified, it seems that this week we can reveal another golfer that has stepped over the rules and got himself banned. Scotsman Elliot Saltman has been given a three month ban from the European Tour after he was found guilty of breaking the rules at the Russian Challenge Cup back in September 2010.

Saltman was accused of marking his ball incorrectly on at least five occasions, thus breaking the Rules of Golf. His golf partners Marcus Higley and Stuart Davies first indicated the rule violation to Saltman and then to the referee Gary Butler, stating that they refuse to sign Saltman’s scorecard because he cheated. After a short discussion between the four, Saltman was disqualified from the European Tour.

As golf is considered to be one of the most honorable sports, then cheating is thought to be the most severe offence that a golfer can commit. If there’s another violation next week, they better start building a prison for “rogue” golfers.
