If Feldberg was correct, which he absolutely is not, that would mean that if you left your disc in lieu of using a marker, it would be legal to step on it during your throw. I think we all know that...

The thing is, instinct doesn't really matter. There's no "correct" way to play it unless the TD or whoever painted the line makes it 100% clear where the 10m mark is with respect to the line (outside...

It would depend on whether 10m is outside the paint, inside the paint, or in the middle of the paint...which is the question in the OP.

Bottom line though, the paint is irrelevant since it's not...

Agreed.

Having played Am Nats with that scoring procedure, I can say that what ended up happening was Player B tended to only be concerned with what Player A was scoring since he had Player A's...

I think the savings deal only applies to one fill-up at a time, so filling two cars at $3.00 a gallon instead of one at $3.00 and one at $3.40 a gallon would save whatever $0.40 a gallon X however...

Measuring devices for the purpose of making rulings (1 meter in from OB, 2 meters up, 10 meters from the target, etc) have been legal for a long long time. It is only with the recent rules update...

Wrong. Your position is determined by the rear edge of the marker. If you leave the thrown disc on the ground, then that is the marker so it is the rear edge of the disc.

So if your disc is...

The trilogy challenge strikes me as something you do for other disc golfers, not for beginners who've never or barely played before, which is what I read as the intent of this event. The goal is...

There's no standard for how to mark the circle since it's not standard to mark the circle at all (i.e you won't find it in any rule book). So the answer lies with whoever made the mark as far as the...

Forget the possibility of your score being wrong, how did they even have a total score for you if you hadn't putted out yet? I assume it was essentially a drop-in so they were giving it to you, but...

That's often the case with tee time events, and it's easy to execute because that tent/office/area is usually near the last green. I have my doubts that it is still the policy though, but that's...

Hey, if it's required that the player turns in his own card, I'd be all for it since it really isn't all that different from requiring the group to turn in a single card together. The only thing is...

Oh, I know that 99% of the time when a player "didn't see the card", it's because they walked off without trying to get a look at it first. But that doesn't stop them from using it as an excuse to...

I don't see many tournaments going that route anytime soon. Paper cards are going to remain the norm for a long time still, IMO.

It derives from the French word for egg (as in "goose eggs on the scoreboard"): l'oeuf.
