I think Iacas has it exactly right.
I got the feeling the silence following Blair's putt was mostly the result of surprise and shock, maybe sadness for Aaron, but not so much dislike of Blair. I haven't seen any other indication of controversy concerning Blair. I'm sure it was just that no one saw that going in.
I may be a bit dense, I admit, but I still don't understand where the golfer's intent comes into the application of this particular RoG. Either you improved the lie, or you didn't; if you did, it was either as a result of the permitted acts, or wasn't. If KP's actions here violated the rule, by his design or otherwise, and regardless of how often it's not caught or called when others do it, he still violated the rule and won that championship under false...

This is just to note that apparently I'm not the only one to see an opportunity here for lame golf metaphors.
I agree re "cheat" -- it's a different question than did he break the rules. It denotes intentional misconduct. But the official's statement about intent remains irrelevant, since he was answering the other question: was there a violation.
Lovely swing, Vardon. That's all I have to add!
