On the bright side....it's probably her last time. That is invariably good for the sport.

What more it seems the Europeans are being completely transparent and definitive about this. I really respect that.

I agree. Good for the European disc golf community to openly admit that this happens, and to handle it with tact. Here in Korea, cheating is expected. At Nationals, the TD (in Korean) told all the Korean players: "Try not to cheat, the Americans will catch you."

Man I am so tired of America thinking its the World's policeman lol

Cheating at disc golf is ridiculous and sad, and yet, I see it often every season. Little things. Taking liberty with foot placement, setting up in bushes, "forgetting" the drop in also counts as a stroke, obvious jump putting, etc etc etc

do it in a tourney though and you better get your ass called on it

The guys I tend to play with are pretty serious competitors. They play casual rounds like tourney rounds. We always play OB, mandos, etc. That is why I mentioned kicking a disc back in when they think nobody is looking and triple flipping a disc. I'm happy to hear that your friends don't take it seriously. Thanks for sharing.

If you play competitive golf on a regular basis this^^ is how you should play the casual rounds.

We usually have a few $$$ for most rounds so rules are important. I don't mean the rules about image (no beer, shirts with collars, and those types of rules), but rules regarding competitive play are always in place to insure fairness. Same as with tag play. Now if you're out to get in a few holes before dark or showing the neighbor the game, sure, there is plenty of flexibility with that.

People can play however they please outside of organized competitions, but, if you're counting strokes, you should be playing by the rules. Otherwise, your score is meaningless.

Having said that, I often times do not count strokes at all when I play with my friends. We just go out to have fun, and I get a lot of enjoyment out of being outdoors and making particular shots.
