Don't be afraid to post questions, I see lots of people asking question were it comes down to interpretations of the rules, the answers are not always black and white!

Can ams receive cash during a PDGA event, if entered in a cash only Ace Pot?

I know that players are not to move when someone is putting.

I know that it is best not to be in a players view when they are putting.

I know that after you putt, you are to clear the basket.

I was playing at a tourny and we had a basket surrounded.  It was my turn, and I made my putt.  I cleared my disc from the basket and I started to walk away towards my cart.  All of a sudden, another player had putt and missed.  He started cussing up a storm and yelled that people shouldn't move while players are putting.

I just stood there with a "WTF' look on my face. 

What should I have been done ??

I feel that I didn't do anything wrong.

I feel that he should have waited until I was out of his view.

After all, I was clearing the basket.

OR should I have not cleared the basket, or should I have cleared the basket and walked about twenty feet away from the basket and stood still ?  I still would have been in view if I did.


What is the ruling on this situation??

It doesnt matter as long as it is suspended by the basket itself it cant land on top of the pin to count

I have sprinted to remove putts that were wedged in the side of the basket, but I don't do much sprinting nowadays.

So if it ever happens to you, leave the bag and SPRINT. I certainly would.

A Player in our group teed off and stuck his disc in the side of the basket, it was bent and trapped by the metal. Ace?

Yes a hand can be a supporting point.
