Default Yet another Rules Question, Rev 2.0

During the local tourney,
from anywhere inside 150',
one of the players would stand behind his disc,
and then pace off the distance to the basket (then mess with the chains like he was straitening them out)
and then pace back to his lie,
then he would take his normal time to line up and throw his putt.
This would usually take a minute or two at each hole, for each putt of any distance.
I don't think there is any rule to prevent pacing off your shot, but this was causing slow play and backups on the course.
What is the ruling on this slow play?
Is there a time limit to prevent slow play?
I looked around the PDGA Rules but did not see anything on this.
Thanks.

801.03 - "Excessive Time":
Quote:
A. A maximum of 30 seconds is allowed to each player to make a throw after:

The previous player has thrown; and,
The player has taken a reasonable time to arrive at the disc and mark the lie; and,
The playing area is clear and free of distractions.


B. A player shall receive a warning for the first excessive time violation if observed by two or more players of the group or an official. The player shall be assessed one penalty throw for each subsequent excessive time violation in the same round if observed by two or more players of the group or an official.

don't quote me but I believe the time to take your shot after marking your lie would be 30 seconds. if it is obviously slowing play the courtesy warning pretty much covers a multitude of infractions.

What about deep knee bends? We have a recently turned grand master; who has been a tourney players for 20 years. During this entire period, he's been a "deep knee bender!" More than 50 have been counted; depending on whether his routine got interrupted during the process.

I pace off anything that appears to be outside 33' but inside 80'.

150' foot shots should not be paced off. it should take him more than 30 seconds to do that so call him on it

Also you are not allowed to mess with anything between you and the basket, including the basket.

803.5

B. Obstacles Between the Lie and Hole: A player may not move, alter, bend, break, or hold back any part of any obstacle, including casual obstacles, between the lie and the hole, with one exception: A player may move obstacles between the lie and the hole that became a factor during the round, such as
spectators, players' equipment, open gates, or branches that fell during the round. Where it is not known if an obstacle has become a factor during a round, it shall not be moved. It is legal for a player's throwing motion to make incidental movement of an obstacle.

and

E. A player shall receive one penalty throw, without a warning, for violation of an obstacle or relief rule.
