yeah...theres this one particular player who throws sidearm and errantly flips his shot so far left at a high speed that I cringe as it rips past a seldom used walking path that is at 9 O clock from the tee....it amazes me and terrifies me at the same time

The problem is high speed discs and what they are capable of....these are making safe design practically impossible
