Another, somewhat unrelated, thing to remember is: A jump putt from 9.8m is still a foot fault even if everyone on your card said you were outside 10m. I can't imagine someone calling you on it...

I think several people misread the original post. In example 2 the player did notify the TD. He was on the card with him.

There's a big question about what does arrive at your disc mean. We timed the amount of time starting from when the player first arrived at the disc with his bag still on his back. It was a...

This is already an issue when your disc lands in front of a solid obstacle and you're allowed to take your stance behind the object. Stances close to obstacles like that are actually pretty easy to...

Instead of designating an area as "no playing surface" It could easily be designated as either OB or a casual relief situation. These can both be done with existing rules as long as the TD is on...

The unsafe/Unplayable lie rule has been renamed the optional rethrow rule and involves going back to the previous lie with a stroke penalty. It really doesn't apply here because the OB lie would...

What Chuck is trying to describe as "place your back foot down" and what Feldberg is demonstrating by dragging his foot are not the same thing. The reversing direction to put you back foot down...

Another way of handling this is for the yeller to intentionally throw is shot also OB and then both players retee throwing 3 and it's basically the same thing as giving the original thrower a free...

I don't believe that there is a rule that automatically allows you to do that. I think it is up to the TD to invoke a special rule that allows you to just tee from the drop zone throwing three at...

Friction and drag are not the same thing. A rough surface will increase friction (ie it's interaction with another solid surface), but will decrease drag (resistance moving through a fluid). It's...

It sounds to me like you should apply your basketball philosophy to disc golf and not pay money to play a dumb self officiated sport.

I don't think even this is sufficient. He could have thrown his disc exactly where he made his second shot from and then forgotten it and someone moved it later. It's really hard to prove cheating...

We know what you faced. It's too bad. You taking two shots from each lie is unfair to everyone else. One person taking two shots from every lie has a big advantage over a team. I don't think...

I'd disagree with this one. I don't think it's "reasonable" to take your stance on top of the basket. DROT interpretations have you mark your disc below the basket since the basket itself is not a...
