In calculating for the 85%+ required returned value, player pack value counts in amateur divisions.

For the pro divisions, on the other hand, that percentage is based only on the performance-based...

Well, that and emigrating to Canada or another country. The international stuff is for, you know, international players, not US players who happened to play an event or three outside the country.

I'll buy that reasoning when it comes to the Women. Makes total sense. The presence of Masters and GM-aged players in the Open division should play zero role in how they choose the courses played,...

With two rounds on Jackson, I think that's where the scoring spread will be, making up for the lesser number of total holes.

What I'm surprised by is the pros not playing Warner. Between it and...

There is a big difference, and I speak from experience, between an area that people walk through to just retrieve a disc and an area they walk through to find a disc and throw from its location.

I think it all comes down to how wide and long that path is between the tee and where it opens into the field. <75 feet and I don't see the issue with the design, including the OB. >75 feet and...

On the other hand, roping off those rough areas as OB often protects them from becoming trodden down and progressively easier to recover from, to the point of not being all that punitive at all...

Of course it is. As araytx points out, there is nothing stopping JohnE from picking up the marker disc after his initial throw with the expectation that the throw is or will be in-bounds. Then he...

To be clear, it is audible sound that is not allowed in tournaments (speakers, phone ringers, etc). Listening to music is allowed, but it has to be through headphones at a volume that can't be heard...

The advantage isn't in the placement of her foot, it's in the attempt to place the foot correctly. It's less a pure physical advantage, and more of a psychological/mental advantage. And it...

I disagree with that. There's nothing in the rule that says once one misplay has occurred, no other misplay penalties apply. The rule is regarding an incorrect hole (singular). Seems to me that...

If there is more golf to be played, even after a cut, then any round played prior to it is, by definition, not the "final round". It may be the last round for some, but it is not the final round of...
