Spectators at a tourney should know what it means, as should fellow players on a course.

I would agree that generally it's not a problem for top level competitors (although based on some comments on Worlds this year, perhaps not). However it's much simpler in golf.

That wasn't a course specific rule, the rules for playing out of a bunker are the same anywhere in golf.

The only thing course specific was alerting players that sandy areas were bunkers, and they...

That's true, but I guess that's also my point. There shouldn't be a need to make course/tournament specific rule changes to make the rules work.

They should just work by default, kind of like the...

I don't know what you mean by "sail". But at any rate, there is an angle where any airfoil will generate zero lift. For a symmetric airfoil, this is at zero degrees angle of attack. Anything above...

Are you going to provide any science to show that I'm wrong? Or do you just throw pictures of boobs in an attempt to distract when you don't know what you're talking about?

It means the equation Precession = Torque / (Moment of Inertia * Spin) is a very very good approximation for high spin rates.

That's pretty much it. There's no magic spin speed where physics...

...other than the actual real physics involved.

Let's see what's your explanation is:

The wavy effect of disc flight causes it to cooridinate around the super spin field of disciness.

Definitely a funny video.

Like I said, I'll respect your opinion on how to throw a disc, not on the physics behind why it flies the way it does.

It comes down to momentum and energy, and the conservation laws that govern them.

Angular momentum = (moment of inertia) * (spin)

It starts out wobbly, and get's less wobbly throughout the flight. It doesn't go wobbly -> unwobbly -> wobbly.
