If you need 13-14 wides you might want to try the New Balance trail shoes with vibram soles. I just picked up a pair of MO99's and they feel great. Tons of good grip and very light weight. Plenty of...

The way Chuck explained the ratings calculations to me a while ago (I've lost all my emails since then) is that IN=OUT. This means that the course becomes irrelevant in the ratings calculations. The...

Different ratings - no. How they achieve the ratings - yes.

I think the USGA handicap system is a very good model and can translate well, with some modifications, to disc golf. Each course not...

You are correct. And that was what Chuck argued as well. In any real tournament the likelihood of that happening is too small to worry about. It's even a more remote chance when you add in a normal...

It was the deliberate stomping and rolling around to flatten the grass that screamed 'altering the lie/course'. And t was still 300+ to the pin. I still agree that it should be a 2 stroke penalty but...
