Thanks for this. It's nice to know that at least part of the old course is still somewhat playable. It is a bit ironic that it's the holes that were added to the original nine hole layout to make...

In ball golf, players usually "putt out" their tap-ins in order to clear their ball so as to not be in the way of the other players when they putt. That's not really an issue in disc golf since the...

I go on the basis that there's a difference between non members and non current members. If the players have a PDGA number and a rating, I consider them members whether they are current or not. ...

Just because it's manufactured by a disc company doesn't make it automatically "legal"? I don't think it's a foolish question to ask with regard to these oddly shaped minis, particularly in light of...

Bagging (however you define it) doesn't impact ratings one iota. Nor does par.

I believe it's based on the final date of the league and the whole league is treated like a tournament. So all rounds go into the average together and they all come off the average together when the...

Just average all your rounds together and that should give you a fairly good ballpark estimate, probably within 5-10 points. Unless you're on the borderline between MA1 and MA2 or something and you...

What does advantage have to do with it? I thought we were arguing legality, not whether it provides an advantage. If the purpose of the rule change is to eliminate the question (the gray area, if...

In order to cause movement, one must make contact. Until the foot is on the playing surface, it's not a supporting point. It's no different than a hand or wrist or elbow that...

The OB line itself is OB, so if you called the disc in-bounds because the blade of grass, as part of the line, was touching the disc, it's still OB.

Even if the blade of grass was growing from the...

If the disc was beyond the line, what difference did the blade of grass make? The line is the line.

You don't make it clear, but was the disc beyond the line to the in-bounds side or the...

A blade of grass shouldn't ever be the difference between safe and OB. But that's a different discussion.

You're probably right. But my point wasn't really in reference to "dominance" so much as level of competition. Ken was and still is a great player, no question, but how much of his dominance in the...

What's the ball golf limit on balls carried during a round? Because that's the more apt analogy in this case, IMO. You don't see clubs getting lost during a round very often. Balls, on the other...
