I had an old DX Gazelle which was an ace disc. I pulled it out to give it a chance to fly in a one-disc round, with the restriction that I'd keep it off our lost-disc-water-holes. On a short wooded...

It is, of course, an individual gripe, both as to the user (me) and the particular bag (Ranger).

But in either case, I tend to have a less-than-full bag, so the discs aren't very snug. And I find...

On the other hand, if culture and tradition means that it's not being called on those other players either, it's not at their expense.

The counterargument is, Is the effort to make sure you don't miss it by 3" a disadvantage, compared to the opponent who is more lax and careless about it?

But I agree in principle. A half-inch...

Nothing like pictures of fabulous holes on a course that, most of the time, is further from me than the International Space Station.

Obsolete course maps are an inherent risk in private courses. ...

Essentially the same as removing the "first violation warning".

It might be fairer.

It also might make players even more reluctant to make the call at all. Which is, in my opinion, the biggest...

Among the difficulties of the current stance rules are the penalties. First call is 0 strokes, each thereafter is 1. Throw is not valid, which can be a benefit or penalty to the thrower. So the...

Well, the police did. Not much happens around here, so it gave them something to do. And they were great.

It's not Big-City traffic, except at rush hour, but a lot of traffic lights and less-than-direct routes. I'll bet Trophy Lakes is 45 minutes or more away, depending on where on Isle of Palms you...
