Woods was believed to be facing disqualification Saturday morning after he admitted to taking a drop a few yards behind where he was supposed on the par-3 15th hole Friday. Woods said he didn’t know his drop was illegal, so he escaped with just a two-shot penalty. The situation was heavily debated and some people thought Woods should have withdrawn for signing an incorrect scorecard.
Day, who was the leader after two rounds, apparently wanted Woods in the tournament.
Ellie Day responded to a tweet from AP golf writer Benjamin Everill, who said he was wondering what Day thought of the situation. Ellie said that her husband would want Tiger in the tournament.
@beneverill you’d be correct

Credit to her and Jason for wanting to beat the best.
