A rule often forgotten

Nice to see cardmates stepping up like that too.

Sadly, it's more likely that the entire card would forget about the option available in the rules, or never knew it was there, than that one or more of them know it and say something.

Like I said before, it's good that these things come up on video. Unfortunately, the reality is that such occurrences are the only way that many people will be properly educated about the rules. History shows that most people can't be bothered to actually read the rules.

See, it takes a special brand of insecurity to get offended when encouraged to feel empathy for a girl who is clearly going through some internal struggles.

I am here for you though! I’d be happy to break it down for you if you feel you want help working through those socially crippling egocentric insecurities and the defense mechanisms they clearly trigger for you. That’s a sad way to go through life and I feel bad for you, just out there flapping in the breeze, all emotionally tender and angry. Poor thing! Lmk, insight for days my man!

Guessing you took a couple psych classes, or perhaps have read Psychology Today a few times? You come to the forum, do some amateur psychology analysis on one of the leading FPO players, then give Rupor crap for calling you out on it? My suggestions would be to do some amateur psych on yourself.

Odd to her that Paige called a "falling putt" on her self on hole 16 R1. . but no one in the group confirmed the call

Others already answered it, but here it is in the rulebook:

https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-...isc-golf/80205
The line of play is the imaginary line on the playing surface extending from the center of the target through and beyond the center of the marker disc.

Also accessible from the index: https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-...olf/appendix-e

Several players on my card did this exact thing at Worlds this year. We were surprised when the players on the lead card did not take as much relief as the rules allow.

She could have. But remember that to do so costs a stroke. Assuming she knew the rule and remembered it, she still had to decide if backing up and then throwing one shot (2 strokes) would have been an advantage over throwing from her original lie and then throwing a second shot (2 strokes).

I wasn't there so I don't know the advantages v. disadvantages of the two choices there, but it's something to be taken into consideration by the player. It's part of 'course management', and IMHO that's one of Paige P's (few) weaknesses.

You should guess less, you aren't very good at it.
