Not certain for sure on CA, but the vast majority of states have "joint & several liability". This doesn't work well for the park. If one of the defendants is unable to pay it's share of the...

Typically when you land in casual water, you're in a position to make an unimpeded throw at the basket. By having the option of not getting your feet wet and backing up a bit, you're not gaining an...

I agree with this 100%. There is much more that can be considered a stance in Disc golf and a disc golfer should be able to take a stance in foliage with much less disturbance than a ball golfer.

A 50 degree fahrenheit drop in temperature causes about 10% increase in air density (this is equivalent to about a 3000' elevation change).

So a 10 mph wind at 25 degrees would be slamming your...

Just to clarify, the disc entered the basket legally. The only thing at question was whether or not "it was at rest" before falling in.

That's my issue, you shouldn't have to "poll a card" to make a ruling.

The USGA has made it a point in their rule making to try to eliminate ambiguity and subjectivity from the rules. The reason...

Just out of curiosity, if you were a TD how would you have ruled on the example I gave where it fell from the top of the basket into the basket?

Although it appears that the PDGA has clarified this rule as it relates to the 2 meter rule (probably because of the whole judgement problem), similar situations can come up elsewhere.

The fact that the disc moved, after being caught by the tree, quite clearly casts some serious doubt on whether or not it was ever "at rest". I've seen this happen on a number of occasions in ball...

Trying to determine when a disc is at rest from a distance, is ripe for argument. Who's to say that the disc in the tree was still not moving imperceptibly and then finally broke loose?

I personally consider mud on a teepad to be a safety issue. It can make them very slippery (especially the rubber mat style ones) and easily lead to an injury.

In a casual round I would just tee...

I'm a little confused:

Are you referring to the parting line as in where the mold comes together? If the disc is of the same mold wouldn't this be in the same position?

That's what I always assumed glide referred to, the ability of the disc to generate more lift at lower speeds, and thus maintain a more stable, less drastic descent at the end of it's flight.

This might be slightly off topic, but why on earth would you ever throw a provisional on a shot you thought might be out of bounds?

I'm in 100% agreement.

But if this is standard and accepted practice, why not have the rule actually written that way???????
