HAHA lack of skills?

I'm sure we will all at some point look back and realize how lame jump putting was..

3. It will impose a logistical nightmare on TD's at big events who now have to be concerned how to mark where the new putting circle/restriction begins, when they have far more important things to do. They waste enough time, money and paint marking 10 meter circles as it is.
How about...

4. "None of these have reached a proposal stage yet"

This isn't going to be in the new updated rule book. It's not even at a stage where it's being considered to be added officially to the rule book at any time. It's just people throwing ideas around on a discussion forum.

Troll - Not sure

Rule = dumb....who is going to measure 100 - 160' away its silly and how could you enforce it. Who accurately jump putts from 150' that we need this rule for...lol

I have no idea what your point was with this besides general trolling but if a course is well designed this should always be the case. Otherwise the par is off.

I could easily design a 700 foot uphill par 3. would it be fair? no. Could Cam Todd the Superhero golfer birdie it? no. What a dumb statement.

^yes. so is DGCR. it's a discussion...i didn't say it was a 2013 rules change...those can be found in links below. Truth is that if we didn't discuss things, they'd go ahead and make all sorts of new rules without input...here's your chance to voice your opinion.

Then your par is incorrect.

And I'm far from a troll.

The fact that it keeps coming up for discussion is scary enough. I'm pretty sure the folks on the rules committee have heard my concerns 1-3 more than once. A reasonably minded person taking those concerns into account would realize that after facing resistance to those ideas the first time, they should have been heaped to the bad idea dumpster where they belong.

well the pDGA often ignores the advice of it's members...see the 2011 bylaws change to allow BOD to be expanded and to be nominated rather than voted on. They also did this without a vote by members basically arguing that members were too stupid to know how to assemble a BOD by votes.

Even the "proposals" author talked to a few players and no objections were raised...or maybe they were and the pDGA put their "earmuffs" on again.
