    I guess the part "The player is allowed a reasonable time to reach the hole" is subjective.
    The rule could not specify a time (period) for the player to reach the hole because of the number of circumstances which may be associated to the previous stroke. For example, the stroke may have been taken by hitting across a small greenside stream, requiring the player to walk to a nearby bridge and then back towards the hole. Or, the stroke could have been an approach shot from 100+ yards away, requiring the player to make his way to the hole as part of normal play.

      So to be clear, you are still allowed to jump up and down near the hole and block the sun with your body hoping the grass wilts slightly?

        Yes, for 10 seconds...

          Simply put...THAT was too long. If you can cast a shadow and the grass starts to droop, you're there too long.

            No. Yes.
            Jumping up and down causing the ball to move means you add a one stroke penalty and replace the ball on the lip of the hole.
            It's highly unlikely that the grass will "wilt" sufficiently in 10 seconds, for the ball to move.
