I find the entire existence and use of mini markers to be strange, and a bit silly. No longer mandated, of course, except when relocating the lie. It looks like we're pretending to be golfers,...

Leopards and teebirds are excellent suggestions for fairway drivers, especially starting out. There are good reasons why these classics have stayed so popular.

Agreed. Though I have some doubts as to whether the damage shown in those pictures is from discs. Or, even if it is, how significant it is to the tree's health.

But you're right. Disc golfers...

We have a hole that is 223' in one layout, 714' in another.

Yeah, that's one of the things that really affects the SSA, limiting its usefulness from one event to another, and would really make it...

I'm curious at to how much SSA varies, anyway, the initial topic of this post notwithstanding. Of the 3 courses I'm most familiar with, 2 of them have had amazingly consistent SSAs over the years. ...

That is extremely unlikely.

In the miniscule chance that it does happen, you can blame it on small samples.

Take 500 of each group, and it will never happen.

I know, you'll never get 500. ...

Perkerson Park in Atlanta has that poured rubber playground stuff. Fabulous when dry. I'm also curious as to how it is wet, and how it will endure heavy use.

We also had a basket next to a pond, underneath a huge oak tree. We took a picture of it, and had it printed on a batch of custom discs.

Then the tree died, and had to be cut down.

Even less of consequence when you consider how much that 30-point aberration will affect a particular player's rating. What, 3 ratings points if he plays 10 events a year? 1.5 points if he plays 20?

For myself, I routinely play a course where, between the amount of water and my own inaccuracy, I have about a 50% chance of sinking a disc each round. I'm not giving them all up without a fight.
