who the heck is "Tutta"? Anyway, I don't think she behaved very well,by walking far away from the green before Christie could putt and then screaming from a distance "Pick it up". I thought in golf, common courtesy demands that you remain on the green till everyone is finished putting. She did it hole after hole and I thought it was rude.

Well, it might be rude but she didn't break any 'rules'. And, it happens a lot, on both tours.

It couldn't happen that often. I noticed the announcer and Judy Rankin both commented on it. Even the camera man followed her and her caddy a couple of times on their trek away from the green. They did admit it wasn't breaking a rule, still seemed very rude to me, especially since there were just the two of them playing. What was her hurry?

This is MATCH PLAY...not the same as STROKE play. There is actual strategy involved in doing so.

As I said before the announcers made a big deal out of it, so it couldn't be all that common.

You are just assuming I'm a beginner and know nothing about match play. I went to your link and didn't find anything there about being rude. I've been golfing a very long time and have played in match play tournaments at my club. It was a nice try though, I still think there's no excuse for being rude.
