You can use environmentally friendly options when marking the circle.

A course can install a string/rope/chain around the pole that's 10m long or you can carry a small 10m tape to measure off the close ones.

IMHO, if you have to use a falling or jump putt that close to the basket you should be worrying more about your putting form than the 10m circle. :)

No foul. In the absence of an actual measurement then the group's decision is law on that, you can't call him for a penalty if the group said that it's outside of 10m.

Ha...you're right. 9 times out 10 when it's close and someone asks, they jump and miss. I think jump putting is much less accurate, I only do when I'm at least 40 to 50 feet out and my normal putt isn't going to cut it.

I've played with a couple guys that are both quite good at jump putting from 33-45ish feet, to the point of being high percentage putters (at least 75%) from the lower end of that range. But if they're around 25-33 feet and can't jump putt than they're pretty much fucked.
