I don't think there's any such thing as a sidearm only pro, just as there is no such thing as a backhand only pro. Players may prefer to throw one...

Which is why the PDGA has already altered the manufacturing specs allowing disc makers to add GPS and LEDs to discs at the factory level.

My point is that your idea of molding pockets for GPS or LED opens the door for abuse with weights. Yes, plethora of models and manufacturers, but they're producing discs to legal standards. Being...

Do golf balls have them? Are players allowed to modify their balls for better/longer/different flight? I don't believe they are.

Common practice around here when discs are traded or sold between players is to draw a single line through the old name and contact info (so it's still legible) and write "given/traded/sold to" with...

Being that it was a (pay) course with a staffed pro shop, maybe calling the shop immediately might allow them to catch the perps before they leave the course.
