Oh ok. When you mentioned the heel 'slamming', I was picturing something like the mountain stances in many of the (performance) Chinese martial arts, where you really do slam your foot down as you...

Hmm.. the "leading foot of your heel" really shouldn't ever "slam into the ground" though. That's indicating your weight is already centered over your body, where it should really be on your back...

It's not really a horse stance at all, no. Weight transfer (from back to front) is very important, and horse stance has weight centered between the feet.

From horse stance, imagine reaching your...

Blue Lake is great for a cart. Milo is pretty good, although there's a few wooded holes in the hills that might be a little tricky to get to with a cart. Trojan I haven't played, so can't comment on.

On the TD/volunteer side, there are no 'benefits' to players turning in un-totaled scorecards. Yes, it takes a little bit more time to check a scorecard that hasn't been totaled (especially if it...

ToddL corrected me that it is 2.5 standard deviations (or 100 rating points, whichever is smaller) below your rating. If the round isn't included in your rating, then no, it would not factor into...

Two standard deviations below your rating, I believe, is the cutoff for a round being included in your rating. So it will depend a bit on how consistent a player is all around.

It depends on how the penalty is applied. The 888 code, for example, penalizes the players' rating, but doesn't factor into the rating system itself for future round (propagation) calculations. Other...

Thanks to the wholesale-retail differential on merchandise (i.e. players packs and scrip payouts), for most events that really shouldn't be the case. Yes, when you compare the number of hours that a...

I have an A-width foot (the narrowest size) and currently wear the Keen De La's for disc golfing. The fit isn't terrible, but I do have to cinch them up pretty tight.

Hi Loomis,

I really do wish you'd speak more to the numbers, though. I see 72 spots, and giving 10 more to FPM means taking 10 away from some other division (that is filled too). But you aren't...

I agree. In the last 4 years of playing events, I think I've seen a division below MA2 offered twice (total). The big/popular events even tend to drop MA2 (e.g. the Beaver State Fling) as well....

I think you're understating the role of the TD here. TD's don't have "a lot of power", TD's have essentially *all* of the power, and all of the responsibility, too. The PDGA is essentially a...
