Sometimes the ruling doesn't call for a provisional, and in those situations a player can call for the TD. So there should never be a reason for any animosity between players.

Hell I've even tried to go the friendly route by giving a fellow DGer an informal "You Might Want to Watch that" and got an earful.
At the Washington Tournament on our fist hole of the 3rd Round a Certain DGer foot faulted by a toe or so. So instead of calling him out and pissing him off I figured I'd give give him an informal warning on the way to the next tee. I politely said "Hey man you might want to watch it, you foot faulted just bit there and were close a couple of time the previous round (we played together the round before as well)". That was the dumbest thing I've ever done .... I got an earful about how I need to worry about my own game and how I'd be a better player if I didn't worry about how other people are playing". I proceeded to have a terrible round as it ate at me all round. There was just an uncomfortable vibe from there on out.
Thats exactly what i was trying to explain - having a better round by not calling anything. Ive had this happen many times when I played open the few years that I did as well, its not just an Am1 deal.
