It's gambling in the sense that you're playing for your competitors' money rather than some outside purse. That's the same sense that labels poker as gambling.

And there's only so much control...

I have to disagree with you on the bolded. On hole 1 or hole 5 or hole 14, there are bail-out options early. There are no such bail-out options on hole 8. Perhaps from the red tee, which is also...

Bingo. And it's not like it's new anymore. The "patient-zero" tournament from which the original ratings were derived was in 1998. Ratings were first introduced as a divisional guideline in 2002. ...

I'd still like to read a convincing argument as to why players shouldn't be responsible for adding their own card, and why not requiring them to do that math is "better" for the game. "Because ball...

I was joking a bit, but I'm also calling attention to exactly what you're saying. Like oddjob posted, "sandbagging" is largely a myth. A myth created by the effect of players playing up.

Why can't it be both? I think players should add their own damn scorecards because they should add their own damn scorecards. That it makes life easier for the TD, whether it's the only event he...

Until TDs are compensated at tournaments as well as the best players are, I'm going to advocate anything that makes their job easier.

Good TDs are hard to come by. Players are a dime a dozen.

It's the lower-rated players playing up that makes those playing in their ratings-appropriate division look like sandbaggers. Hence a sandbagger "problem".

Duh.

You're really not going to win people over here by essentially saying that TDs need to do more so players have to do less.

Totaling a scorecard is not a difficult thing to do. Having 72 people do...

There aren't nearly enough players to support a division in which you must "earn" your way in. And even if there were, you'd need far more outside support for the purse in such a division for it to...

The way golf does it, if you turn in an incorrect scorecard, you're disqualified.

I'll take the two throw penalty, thank you very much.

Pretty sure McBeth nearly won the Memorial two years ago because Will Schusterick failed to do some math (and a little bit of writing).

Personally, I'm a little offended at the implication that a...

If I'm reading this right, you left the course at the end of the round, went to the TD's table, but didn't have the scorecard with you and ultimately it wasn't turned in (or turned in late)? So you...

Hex is not a plastic. It's a design feature of the mold. Hex refers to the little hexagonal dimples in the flight plate of the disc.

Nearly all of Lat's discs are available in Opto plastic. The Hex part is in the mold, so at the moment, the Missilen is it for Hex technology.
