You're right, if we wanted to actually compare metro areas, then we would look at how close each course is to each resident. That's what I did to rank states by the quantity of disc golf each...

I won’t be happy until we boil all this down to a single number so we can produce a winner.

To do that, we first need to weight the courses by distance from the center. A course way out at the...

It's fun to feed the still-living severed head and watch the food come out the back of the throat.

Well, it was when I was a kid. I probably couldn't to do it now.

Agreed, the disc on the ground is not a thrown disc, it is a marker, so he can't mark his lie by putting a mini in front of it.

So what happens if the player does want to throw the disc that is...

That almost convinced me. If you had pointed out that after a throw, the full-size disc on the ground is no longer the "thrown" disc, I'd be convinced. Oh, wait....

So, now we're at the point...

No one said anything about 51 cm, I don't know where you get that.

When the thrower first steps up to their thrown disc, they can use that as the marker or use a mini. Why is that not also the...

As for your example, No it would not be OK. But as has already pointed out, relocating the lie lie by placing a mini is a different situation.

That would not be a problem, that would be ideal. The top players will always be able to score under par, probably way under if there are enough rounds.

The problem is when par is set higher than...

I disagree with Chuck on this one.

The rule says: “Alternatively, a mini marker disc may be used to mark the lie”

The rules really can't address what is or is not out of bounds, only what to do when a disc lands there.

The TD is the one who needs to tell you what is and is not out of bounds.
