But in this case, where there is only one hole, I would think you would normally add the two penalty throws to the score for the misplayed hole. So I should...

Should the group then get two penalty throws for incorrectly playing round 2 also? As in four penalty throws total (two for R1 and two for R2) I guess that might not seem fair, but really I think it...

I'm not arguing that the rules are adequate, I just think that (my) logic dictates that the completed hole is more accurate, and therefor appropriate. But I certainly understand where you are coming...

And if it happens to be the wrong hole, it's a hole out of sequence. G1 isn't really for starting play on the wrong...

When the disc is holed out, the hole is completed, and it is non sequential play, and no longer a incorrect lie.

One thing I find particularly hard to call, but see a lot, is players standing too close to their mini. When rocking back and forth, they often touch with the tip of the shoe, sometimes it hard to...

In that case, you should also have your hand no more than 2 cm. over the thrown disc. Then we are talking about playing it where it lies. It does complicate throwing mechanics, and enforcement might...

I guess this is another one of those, where the rules committee didn't write the rule the way it was intended. Usually I'm on the side of the written rules vs intended rules, but it doesn't make any...

Looking up the rules, to show geoloseth, I understand his point and see where the confusion comes from. The literal interpretation of "thrown disc" can be that you can only relocate once,...

It made so much sense to me that I assumed it to be the case. That is terrible that the best players in the world and all...

Without knowing for sure, I don't think there is an issue with Hole 7 at the USDGC. I caught it too, when Ricky putted during the final round, but if the Mandatory is not the opening, but instead the...

What is the point of a provisional, if there is disagreement on whether a disc is safe or out, when it's not a question of an area being OB or not? At least if the resulting lie is the same, isn't it...

And sure, if the TD has doubts about why happens, benefit goes to the player. I don't think a TD would DQ a player without feeling confident...

While that could happen, I think it's pretty unlikely to happen over the course of a tournament. Also, this isn't a murder trial where you have to prove prove something beyond reasonable doubt. It's...

To invoke penalties here, I think the TD would need to have the group/player show from where he made the throw, and after that have the player who found the disc show where it was found. If those to...

I can't think of any other sport where that is allowed in a doubles format. If one player withdraws, the team withdraws.

After realizing I missed the part about replaying the hole later in the correct sequence, I totally agree with you. And I need to apologize to Steve West. Now I actually think he has a point about...

I'm still not sure I agree that the players that had only thrown 1 time should take an extra penalty throw, but I at least don't...

Thinking about it, I also think there is an inconsistency concerning misplay and stance violation. If to discs are close to each other on the fairway, and I throw behind the wrong one, I would argue...

It only says "wrong hole" that could mean both a hole to be played later or a hole that is not part of the course. Either way, I...
