My experience is that playing blind isn't that hard. Particularly on a fairly level course, where the hole distances correlate to how hard you have to throw. Elevation is trickier to judge. Wooded...

.....although I will agree a bit with the title. If you're worried about ratings, you've either got strange priorities, or an extremely easy life.

I'll go further---I don't get why people get hung up on the rating for a single round, or a handful of them.

By the time a given player averages 40 or so rounds together, with their fairly minor...

Well, it never ends. Here in our 11th year of executing the dream, we discovered a new hole location....on a walking trail where we'd been hundreds of times. Go figure. When we get it finished,...

Thanks. It didn't occur to me that the Pro pool was bigger than the other two. Duh.

Well, that presumes that they would have scheduled the Pros for 4 rounds, but couldn't because of the Ams. Somehow, it seems unlikely. My guess is that they planned for the pros to play 1 round per...

The bigger arms who throw further would a run-up, would also throw further with stand-&-deliver. They wouldn't lose any advantage at all.

At any rate, that's hardly the largest part of the...

When I square the rating and divide by distance from my house, it comes out to a really big number. As it should.

Rating squared. Perhaps a little steep? I think I'd prefer one 4.5 rated course to two 3.0 rated courses.

Of course, you'll get this perfect number and then it'll change constantly as you drive...

I don't think that follows. It's not the most rounds, but which courses and formats, that should matter most in the NT. Would it be any different for the Pros if the Ams only played 1 round on...

I wonder what the alternative format choices, that would not bug some people, were?

I've found drop zones to be surprisingly tricky to get right. You get the tee and green and fairway and O.B. set, and then put in a drop zone that's too tough, too easy, or even a NAGS with little...

Large areas of O.B. often place different constraints on a throw.

Obstacles constrain where the disc can fly, but often there's less worry about where it lands. Sometimes you're free to land...

It's rarely a case of too much O.B. Sometimes a case of poor use of O.B.

This isn't limited to ropes or other designer-created O.B. It can also happen when using existing features---water,...

I think "selfish" is just his typical slightly-ironic way with words. It's catchier than saying, "in our own long-term interest as pros."
