Is golf referee John Paramor  seeking to

 be part of the show? High-profile timekeeper

Senior Writer, ESPN Golf
I applaud the European Tour's moves to speed up play and agree with the concept of the penalty.
 I have a problem with the way John Paramor decided he would enforce it. This is the same person who put Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington on the clock at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2009, and Tiger said it may have affected his results. Paramor also penalised Tianlang Guan, a 14-year-old amateur at the Masters in 2013, almost causing him to miss the cut. 
Are we seeing a pattern here? The fact that he waited until cameras were around to inform Jordan Spieth tells me he was seeking attention. Paramor reminds me of NBA referee Joey Crawford as a person who wants to be part of the show.
