OR it just doesn't release from the hand clean. That was my issue, now I can throw my judges are far as my mids lol.

I recently found an autographed 2012 USDGC Champ Roc+ on the course. I can't read the autograph, but it looks like Chris H_____. No name or number otherwise. I've done a bit of research online, and it looks like the disc is rare, but not that rare. Should I make an effort to find the owner out of kindness, or is this disc common enough that I should just keep it?

The value of the disc should not determine the effort you put in to finding the owner. I have lost $5 discs that were more valuable to me than something OOP. Just ask around but if you can't make out the name and no one else around knows the guy then don't feel bad doing what you feel like with it.

(I typically tend to give those kind of discs to new players or kids I see)

Why do pro dg'ers use their minis to mark a putt from less than 3 feet away? Seems inefficient and wasted energy to me. Why not leave the thrown disc on the ground and putt?

Good point, and a good idea. If there's not a spot in my bag for it (I already have multiple similar discs), I might look at passing it on to someone else.

Sometimes bending over is easier than pulling one out of your bag while it is still on your back.

I see the USDGC is the first weekend in September, and that the US Am. Doubles Championships are on the last weekend of September, and will play the Winthrop Gold course for the final round.

My question is: Will the ropes/hay bales be left up so the course can be played in between these two tournaments, or will it be dismantled after the USDGC and then reassembled for the Amateur Doubles Championship?

Thanks in advance!

OOPS! So a new question...When will the course first be set up? Will it be in advance of the Am Dubs so that someone playing in that tourney could get a practice round in?

Thanks Spikodelhyzer for correcting my mistake

I think they set it up a few days in advance, maybe even a week in advance of Am Dubs.
