On Johne's OB on Hole 2: It was a misfire to begin with or it wouldn't have flirted with the line like it did. I was 10 feet from where the disc was coming in and everyone around there said that the...

Yes, which is why we love crushing drives down hillsides. However, within 10 steps of the basket, we aren't looking for who is strongest, we are looking for who is most precise.

I would suggest playing a round, and mentally keeping track of each and every throw. Then, when you are done, go back over the round in your mind, making notes on which shots kept you from achieving...

A. You missed my point on the thing about Ultimate. I was saying that Ultimate and DG are different in style and that DG is able to eliminate more ambiguity than action sports.

To compare fast-paced, action oriented team sports that have referees to disc golf is a bit of a stretch to make your point. If we were discussing the rules of Ultimate frisbee, then yes. But DG is...

I would say they are similar. Both are mostly wooded. ICC is perhaps a bit shorter and easier (with the exception of a couple holes) in a pine forest. Eureka has a couple of holes that are open...

That's not what the rule change would be about. One of the things it would be about is getting rid of the need to self police a hard to determine line that needlessly changes the throwing rules....

Golf, at it's core, is a very simple game. Start here and get there in as few throws as possible.

Rules that supplement that basic concept can and should be evaluated for validity. Rulebooks...

Those who want the circle bigger, can you explain your reasoning? If it is to make the game harder, would you also suggest stand still tee shots, required forehand putts, or no-thumber rules for guys...

Deadfalls will only come into play within 8' of the basket, and I would make an argument that they would be unnecessary at that short of a distance.

Leaping dunks would still not be allowed since...
