I get you are going after intent here. Which is hard to prove with out Keegan saying what his intent is. The USGA really doesn't have a rule that could penalize Keegan with.
He's not addressing the ball. Most of the time he's doing this, he has the club in either one or both hands, lifts the club away, walks away, maybe onto the fairway or green, comes back, does it again, walks away, talks to his caddie, does it again, goes back to the green or fairway, does it again, steps away, starts that stupid wind-up routine of his, adresses, and hits the ball. He must have done it three four times last night and every time, no-one calls him on it.
Why is this? Does NBC or the GC need Keegan Bradley so badly they don't want to upset him? Someone with some balls call the guy out.
