Something else to keep in mind is that no "announcement" is really required according to the rule, just that the playoff format must be designated prior to the start of the tournament. I would argue...

A trench isn't going to prevent the ground from ever being muddy in the spring. It's only going to shorten the length of time the mud exists. The difference between a month of muddy fairway and...

I think speed is tied in pretty closely with rim width, so it would be tough to find speed 13 discs with a speed 9 rim. But I think there are certainly speed 9 type discs which have a boatload of...

Thing is, even last year when Worlds filled so fast, it wasn't within minutes...it took a couple days. I realize that the NTs are filling in minutes this year, but Worlds is a bit of a different...

Worlds invitations are not based on skill. They're based on earning points. You don't have to win or even place well to earn enough points to qualify, you just have to attend enough events to...

Don't really disagree with the Wizard suggestion (or pretty much any putter from any manufacturer), but do disagree with the max weight suggestion. 150-class is where you want to start weight-wise....

First come, first served. Way more people qualify than they have room to accommodate in the tournament. Gotta be on the ball and sign up promptly when the time comes. There's plenty of notice for...

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...

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...

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...
