Jimmy has about a 40 ft. putt.  Behind the basket in his line of sight is a park road, about 100 ft from the basket.


Jimmy steps up to his mini and prepares to putt, oh oh a car is coming up the road, he steps away and waits for the car to pass.  Steps to his mini again, another car, he steps away.  Car passes and he steps to his mini again, another car comes.  Busy place this is:)  He steps to his mini again to putt, now a guy is walking his dog up the road.  He steps away and waits for the dog walker to pass.  Finally after about 2 1/2 minutes of these distractions, he sinks the putt.


What's the call?

I drew the same conclusion: the road does not constitute the "playing area."
hahaha Jamie said filibuster
All kidding aside....The sport being somewhat of a "self officiating" sport and the wide margins of what could be considered a legitimate distraction....What's a distraction to some may not be to others. Unless it's stone cold obvious Jimmy's stalling, I wouldn't call him on it either...I might work him a little after the fact...but, I wouldn't call the warning.

Besides, I knew Jimmy was gonna make the putt anyways ; )
Didn't Jimmy see a 'park drunk' getting up and pulling his pants up.
Crack on! Butt Crackers! No BC please, with that made long distance putt for a carry over.
This would disctract anyone....

Believe that the rule only really applies when it is consistent, becomes a nuisance to others in the group.
On every putt.
Seen various pros consistently, run up a fairway to a hole that they have played before, and others (not to name them) always are excessive in their use of time.

Was there a courtesy tab?
It was a good putt, and made skins carry. Of course he was razzed, however I dont think anyone there really cared that much. And it was for money so if you arent going to do it right, why even try?...Good putt Jimmy!
