It is pretty easy to see "balanced" when you are looking at it. My biggest problem with calling falling putts is not the rule, it's me. I always watch the throw and don't pay any attention to the thrower. When I'm on a three man card, you won't get a second on a falling putt because I won't see it UNLESS the guy pratfalls on his face.MDR_3000 wrote:just because you don't fall on your ass doesn't mean you aren't balanced...
It's actually pretty easy to tell if someone is balanced or not.
do you only fail the "walk the line" test if you fall on your ass?
Not really. I know a falling putt when I see it. I just usually don't see it. Thats not really an issue with a subjective rule, thats an issue with someone who is not acting as an official while they play even though there are no actual officials so it is my responsibility to be one.disctribution wrote:This is exactly the point I am making. Everyone seems to have their own perception of balance. Sounds like you guys don't even really know when to call a falling putt either. I'm just saying I wish there was some definitive answer, and that the rule is not subjective, and up to someone's perception of what is balanced. An OB line, a miscounted score card, 2 meter rule, even a towell under your knee, all these things are cut and dry. Falling putt seems to be different things to different people.
I've totally fallen on my ass picking up my mini! I've done that A LOT more times than I've lost my balance putting!rehder wrote:Ive actually lost control trying to pick up my marker in one swift move
