  While Gasol’s Raptors legacy is undeniable, more offence now would help The ultimate value provided by Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors will always be how he shut down Joel Embiid in the playoffs last season. With that said, the team could certinaly benefit from a little more offence from the big Spaniard this season.

Russell Henley was handed a total of eight penalty strokes for breaking the PGA Tour's One Ball Rule during Round 2 of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

He told PGA Tour officials of the error and missed the cut as a result of it. However, Henley believes the punishment is too severe.

"Do I think eight shots is extreme in this situation? Absolutely," Henley said, according to Golfweek's Adam Schupak. "I think there should be a max of four. I hope eventually we can have some conversations and change the rule. I came from such an innocent place, you could call it a careless place, and given there was no intent I think it's a pretty harsh rule."

Russell Henley was handed eight penalty strokes during Round 2 of the Mayakoba Golf Classic on Saturday for violating the PGA Tour's One Ball Rule, which states a player must use the same make and model of a golf ball for an entire round. While switching balls in the middle of his second round

Henley then realised he had used the wrong ball from the ninth to the 12th hole, a breach of the Tour regulations which stipulate a player must use the same brand and model of ball throughout the round. His unfortunate oversight incurred a two- shot penalty for each of the four holes he used the wrong

Henley noticed while signing autographs for fans that one of the balls he used during his second round in Mexico was slightly different than the others, which is a breach of the PGA Tour's One Ball Rule.

"I change balls every four or five holes, whenever I hit a wedge and there's a scuff on it or something. I think I changed around No. 4, 9 or 10, and 14 or 15," Henley said. "(The rules officials) told me that based on what we know and the high probability I used it, we’re going to take the average of the number of holes you typically used it, which is four."

A two-stroke penalty was given for the four holes Henley used the ball on, resulting in a 77 instead of 69 and a missed cut instead of a paycheck. Under Henley's recommendation of a four-shot max, he would have extended his made-cut streak to nine.

The PGA Tour uses the One Ball Rule to prevent players from switching between balls that may offer different benefits during a round.
