Having reviewed the incident, European Tour officials charged Dyson with a “serious breach” of the Tour’s code of behaviour, a charge which was upheld when Dyson appeared before a three-person disciplinary panel at Wentworth on Thursday. Dyson was given a suspended ban, with any breach of the Rules of Golf in the 18-month period seeing his case referred back to the panel to determine whether the suspension should immediately become effective. He was also fined 30,000 ($48,978, 35,852 euros) and ordered to pay 7,500 towards the Tour’s costs, with the money to be paid within 56 days. In a statement, the European Tour announced: “The panel decided …. to impose upon Mr Dyson a period of suspension from the Tour of two months, but to suspend its operation for a period of 18 months.
