Once again, the ball was overhanging the hole. He waited 10 seconds. The ball had not fallen. It is deemed to be at rest. He walked toward the hole as allowed. He then stopped and waited some more, which is not allowed. In the video, the ball stopped over the hole at the 8 second mark. It didn't drop until the 31 second mark. That is 23 seconds, where at most he only got 10 to wait and 5 to walk, so he was a good 8 seconds outside of the window.
Have'nt read the rule in english but for me it says :
- reasonable time to reach the ball. (example : you play first from the fairway you will wait for others to play you wont be required to rush to the green, on the green you still are required to walk around others lines etc)
- then 10 seconds to determin if the ball is at rest.
the ball is not at rest from what is observed and said, threfore the 10 seconds never start.
anyway you can count 9 seconds from the point he gets to the ball, the thing is in live action nobody's couting with utube. nothing is perfect.
