Have no issues with Lexi Thompson. Harsh, but she was deliberately being unfair with marking her putt. 5 years ago, she'd have been DQ'd (as Harrington was for something accidental). It would set a more dangerous precedent to not apply the rules.

 I don't know whether her mistake was deliberate or not.

The precedent being set was that the ruling only happened after a tv viewer got in contact with officials and complained.
Meaning such a penalty can only be applied to the groups with designated tv coverage, not the whole field.
