Then the tree died, and had to be cut down.

Another side of the "dependent on the course" aspect is that the upshot matters less on reachable holes. Which holes those are depends on who the thrower is, of course. But there are a lot of holes...

This is very dependent on the course. Obviously, longer courses involve more upshots. But also, a lot of wooded courses, especially where the rough isn't too dense, you can save a lot of strokes if...

Even less of consequence when you consider how much that 30-point aberration will affect a particular player's rating. What, 3 ratings points if he plays 10 events a year? 1.5 points if he plays 20?

For myself, I routinely play a course where, between the amount of water and my own inaccuracy, I have about a 50% chance of sinking a disc each round. I'm not giving them all up without a fight.

People will tell you that a golden retriever only works if you can see the disc. However, before we got the pond rake, we'd use it and, if you had a good idea where the disc went it, it might take...

First I heard of those things, some locals built one and came out here and drug up about 40 discs one day.

We bought one instead of building it---but we get lots of use out of ours. (In case...

IF the pond has a smooth bottom, a pond rake* works great. I'm sure we're well over 100 raked out of our pond.

I think it's interesting---in a celebrity sense, and in a surprise sense of someone you wouldn't think of as a disc golfer.

Though for helping disc golf, it's much better to have a mayor who plays.

That, plus the fact that you're so pissed about the bad shot or bad luck that you simply forget the rule, and stomp off to your new bad lie, trailing muttered profanities.

Pulled muscles are tough. It's hard to know when they've healed; you feel fine so go out and throw, and set yourself back a month.

Local league play/minis/whatever they call it is a great intermediate step. I'd recommend it, though it's certainly not necessary.

My guess, for myself, is about 20%. Which is a significant amount. I rarely throw full-power from a standstill, unless a bad lie on a long hole forces me to, so it's just a guess.
