It's silly to set courses up for the top 100 players in the world only. There's no way female players and male players should be playing the same distances and pars.

Take a well designed long par...

Not to mention discs fly by generating lift. Footballs don't. All making a football lighter does is give it less inertia to overcome drag.

The amount of time it takes a faster group to play through in Disc Golf, I can't envision why you ever wouldn't.

If you all throw from the tee, and let the faster group finish up before you,...

This is slightly off topic, but is a fivesome the generally accepted maximum acceptable group size?

I wasn't really taking a shot at Ricky. I agree with you that he would still continue to win if TDs opened things up a bit, he seems to be able to adjust his strategy to the situation better than...

How to defeat Ricky:

Quit roping courses to the point that laying up on a par 3 is the correct play.

People need to quit worrying about par, at least TDs anyway.

Most of the coverage I have watched recently has been a snooze fest of Wysocki and McBeth throwing midranges off the tee to the center...

Steve, this is a very interesting article.

I'm curious how you actually calculated scoring spread, is it a statistical value?

Was that a typo or was it really just 8 feet? That seems like an awfully small change to move a hole from a par 2 to a par 3.

Why would expectations or the smart play have anything to do with it? A basket is either reachable or it's not. Errorless play still puts you on the green putting for 2. I don't follow how the...

When did the definition of par become stroke average for the hole?

It's always been defined as errorless play, in traditional golf, that is shots to reach plus 2 putts. You can make the argument...

I couldn't agree more with your assessment of #17, but it raises the question: If it's not a part of regular disc golf, what the heck is it doing in the US Disc Golf Championship?

Even ball golfers are manly enough to require that you actually move the obstacle, and if you can't,...

I'd have to agree. 175g of hard plastic is still 175g of hard plastic. I can't see making the rim 1/32 of an inch blunter or shrinking the rim a bit is going to make much difference. Unless you're...

I don't know that this is necessarily the case. A lot of baskets are put in very precarious spots because putting is so easy (edge of steep drops, next to OB, etc.). If baskets were smaller this...

That's completely inaccurate. Go play a course that hosts PGA tour events and play from the championship tees. They're not even in the same ball park as the regular tees.

This is a rare outlier. Ball golf generally handles it by having different length tees, where par is appropriate for your skill level. There are some high quality old courses, such as Oakmont,...
