Haotong Li penalized two strokes, lost nearly $100,000 after unknowingly violating new rule with caddie

Several new changes to the Rules of Golf came into effect on Jan. 1, many of which have had a positive impact on the game and made it simpler. Haotong Li, though, likely isn't a fan of one of the new rules after a blunder at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday cost him a pair of strokes, a top-10 finish and nearly $100,000. Li had made birdie on his final hole at Emirates Golf Club on Sunday, good enough for a 71 on his round and a third-place finish in the event.
