Is this in?

This happened to me the other day. The putt bounced, landed on the rim and teetered back and forth for a few seconds. It finally stopped and I waited about 15 seconds before I retrieved it. Is it in? I believe the rules say the basket or chains must be supporting the disc, so I take that as "hell yes, it's in!"

P.S. Yes, the basket is a little goofy but so is an upside down blowfly balancing on the edge...

The rules say the "inner cylinder" of the basket or the chains must be entirely supporting the disc. It's out.

nope..



Only the red and white discs have holed out if declared at rest before either possibly falls down and out of the basket. The orange disc wedged in the side (if declared at rest) has only holed out if the group saw it wedge from the inside going out or didn't see which direction the wedge came from. The yellow and other two orange discs have not holed out under the new 2011 rule even if they remain at rest.

a little goofy? A 5 gallon bucket probably holds more putts than that monstrosity.

I'll give him credit, he was close, and actually knew the rule better than a lot of players do.
