I'm a tournament player, and sometimes TD, and I certainly understand why it's not everyone's cup of tea. In fact, the first handful of events I played, way...

I don't know the reason, but can think of several drawbacks, especially on a relatively full course.

If the slowest group stops to let others play through, it will play even slower. If lunch, the...

Tournament play is slow, but that seems exceptionally bad. Backups generally are the result of a few factors:

Sorry, it was an attempt at humor. I'll leave it to the jury to rule on the lameness.

Find their parents and teach them to play disc golf. If you can get Mom & Dad on the course, the teens will never be seen within 2 miles of it again.

My suggestion is, if you come up with a way to quell bad behavior in teenagers, forget the disc golf. Patent it, copyright it, author a book, and buy your own course with the proceeds, where you can...

Bear in mind that the PDGA doesn't run NTs and Majors, though they kind of co-run Worlds.

Those running the events can weigh the interest, and whether an admission fee is appropriate. Where free...

Ben Calhoun played something like 700 in one year, in his dash to 1000.

I don't think he did much of anything else that year, though.

I hate the "probably have some arthritis" diagnosis. It may be true, of course, but it may not be, in which case it's a cop-out that will waste your time getting to the real problem.

The top 10 is going to be insanely crowded in 30 years.
