I confess that I hadn't thought to look in the Q&A section (Q&A 6) If the point directly above the disc is in the air or within a solid object, mark your lie back along the line of play. Applicable...

We really have two different but related problems here, that I have argued numerous times but never really (until now apparently) have had much support in. The definition of playing surface is too...

My point wasn't that the pond wasn't OB, just that somewhere/somehow it had to be comunicated to the players that it was OB. And in an ideal world, that would define OB a Little more accurate than...

With no players meeting, I'm assuming it was marked on the tee-sign/course map. What did that say? A pond is not OB by default, only when if it is defined...

A lot of players are confused as it is with the current OB possibilities. And players accustomed to ball golf already find our use of the term OB confusing...

Stamps get worn off or are removed. There are discs with the wrong stamps on them etc. If that was somehow relevant,...

Even though people mean well, a lot of the rules you here from people explaining them, including pros, are wrong or inaccurate. If you hear or...

I'm saying that maybe you should read up on the rules before stating that they look poor and "lacking something that will make them enforceable, workable, and/or natural". To me you don't seem to be...

I agree that there are plenty of rules that need fixing or at least tightening up, but this issue is purely about the selfoficiating...

You will not find me arguing against updating the rules I think there are plenty of problems with the curret revision, but I disagree that...

It gives players a reason to think that what they do is perfectly fine. This discussion really isn't about whether or not jump putts are...

Often because players go away to their own lie and throw before you have a chance to move with them. You can only watch so many things. The pout is I at least try to pay...

Because that is what it sounds like to me, and about the only alternative. With that attitude, you really shouldn't play sanctioned events...

By not paying attention and calling violations on others, you are breaking the rules yourself, so strictly speaking, you are not trying to play within the rules yourself. If you don't care about...

But in this case, where there is only one hole, I would think you would normally add the two penalty throws to the score for the misplayed hole. So I should...

Should the group then get two penalty throws for incorrectly playing round 2 also? As in four penalty throws total (two for R1 and two for R2) I guess that might not seem fair, but really I think it...

I'm not arguing that the rules are adequate, I just think that (my) logic dictates that the completed hole is more accurate, and therefor appropriate. But I certainly understand where you are coming...

And if it happens to be the wrong hole, it's a hole out of sequence. G1 isn't really for starting play on the wrong...

When the disc is holed out, the hole is completed, and it is non sequential play, and no longer a incorrect lie.

One thing I find particularly hard to call, but see a lot, is players standing too close to their mini. When rocking back and forth, they often touch with the tip of the shoe, sometimes it hard to...

In that case, you should also have your hand no more than 2 cm. over the thrown disc. Then we are talking about playing it where it lies. It does complicate throwing mechanics, and enforcement might...

I guess this is another one of those, where the rules committee didn't write the rule the way it was intended.
