i'm sure the first scenario wouldn't float in a tourney, but like i said, it's casual play

I think the course he is talking about is White Birch in Hazelwood, Mo. Also known as "Hazelweird," mostly due to the strange customs the casuals have developed over the years. Back in the day there was a beat-up old homemade bridge from 9 to 10 at White Birch that had chain-link fence on the side and a subtle curve in it. Swear on my Mothers grave...the casual rule was that when you finished #9 everyone skipped their discs across the bridge and if your disc landed on the #10A tee, you got to take a stroke off your score. I'm dying if I'm lying. I was working there when the bridge was replaced, and you never heard so much bitching...the new bridge was straight and didn't point at the #10A tee anymore. The casuals had a FIT!

Anyway, my point (if I had one) is to never assume rules you learn at White Birch are actual disc golf rules. Chances are, they are not.
