Honestly, it's sounding more and more like the whole 'wedgie' issue is beside the point entirely. We don't care at all if the disc is wedgied into the basket. We care *how* the disc entered the...

Yep, at this point it's down to three sports vying for one spot at the 2020 (and 2024) Olympics: Wrestling, Baseball/Softball, and Squash. The result of that vote should be in later today.

I feel like that can't be the case.. because why would warming up (before your tee time, but after the first tee time) anywhere else not be penalized in that case? e.g. throwing a bunch of drives at...
