I feel like I'd be really hard-pressed to call those re-tee shots anything other than provisional throws, yes. They don't fit what I would think of as practice throws, and they were "ultimately not...

Unless someone wants to make the claim that all of those throws were practice throws, yes, none of those counted for anything. You'd already holed out.

Edit: I would think it's just a misplay. So 2-throw penalty for playing the hole wrong, based on how you played it the first time. If you got a 4, that would give you a 6. i.e. Once you discover that...

Imo, the best way to think of it is "lost lie" rather than "lost disc". If your lie can be established (e.g. either where the disc actually came to rest, or where it crossed over the vertical OB...

I don't know if there even is any Blue Lake footage. There have been very few events on the course to date.. and most of those used a modified (shortened) layout as well. :(

Hmm.. the "leading foot of your heel" really shouldn't ever "slam into the ground" though. That's indicating your weight is already centered over your body, where it should really be on your back...

It's not really a horse stance at all, no. Weight transfer (from back to front) is very important, and horse stance has weight centered between the feet.

From horse stance, imagine reaching your...

Two standard deviations below your rating, I believe, is the cutoff for a round being included in your rating. So it will depend a bit on how consistent a player is all around.

It depends on how the penalty is applied. The 888 code, for example, penalizes the players' rating, but doesn't factor into the rating system itself for future round (propagation) calculations. Other...

I have an A-width foot (the narrowest size) and currently wear the Keen De La's for disc golfing. The fit isn't terrible, but I do have to cinch them up pretty tight.

Hi Loomis,

I really do wish you'd speak more to the numbers, though. I see 72 spots, and giving 10 more to FPM means taking 10 away from some other division (that is filled too). But you aren't...

I agree. In the last 4 years of playing events, I think I've seen a division below MA2 offered twice (total). The big/popular events even tend to drop MA2 (e.g. the Beaver State Fling) as well....
