Default Excessive time called at DGPT finals

At DGPT finals today, Gannon Buhr was called on an excessive time (over 30 seconds to throw) warning. I firmly believed that the proposed rule change, while it may not change how things occur in our local tournaments WILL change what goes on at DGPT. With the TDs monitoring notoriously slow players, perhaps the pro game will get closer to what it is supposed to be.

Thoughts?

All for it. It was truly painful to watch him on the first few holes take four or five air swings at his lie, THEN go to his bag to choose a disc, then return for a few more swings, and finally a shot.

I had to go out (early morning here in Australia) so I missed the call. Who called it? And I assume this was just a warning? No penalty stroke?

About time. I didn’t see it but would be interested to know if it was called by a player or an official It sucks that they waited ‘til now, and that it was a kid instead of Nikko, but good to see someone making an effort. I don’t think fiddling with a range finder should be cause for extra time either.

Good...the pace of the game is a large part of disc golf's playing and viewing popularity...

The 30 second rule is also part of the challenge for a touring pro.

I wished this happened more often.

Buhr has been on coverage a few times. I knew that I didn't enjoy watching him, but I never thought about why. I went back and watched a couple of shots and he is definitely consistently over the limit.

Completely agree with all of this.

Nikko is slow, but he's not the earliest or worst example of unreasonably slow play. Pretty sure Geoff Bennett was doing his lengthy warm up routine while Nikko was still in school. I expect there are other examples of notoriously slow players from earlier eras.
