I do believe you are thinking Viola.

Voila means “there you are”

Cheers!

No, actually I was thinking of Cello. Yo-yo Ma isn't French though.

I'm curious. What is the exact objection/issue with the 3-step "measurement" when taking 1-meter relief from an OB line? Is it that it's not exact? Why does it have to be? Unless the person stepping has huge feet such that three heel-to-toe steps plus placing the mini puts them outside of one meter from the line, their little measurement isn't breaking any rules. You get up to one meter of relief. If it ends up being 0.9m, so what as long as the subsequent stance is legal (i.e. in-bounds)?

I think the only issue would be if the player was shorting themselves, which could possibly lead to a poorer lie (like Nova said could happen to a woman not taking four shoe lengths).

Okay, I can see that. But only if the folks taking three steps are doing so under the assumption that that is all the relief they get. If that's the case, then we have an education problem that goes well beyond how people are measuring their relief.

One thing that I've always found odd is the player who repeatedly salutes the shot before taking it. You know, the guy who holds the disc at arms length, brings it back in and does that several times before throwing. I've even seen this on short putts. Although the intended flight line looks different from the tee, I've come to believe that the less time I spend second guessing myself the better.
