"skins" or match play is a way of playing disc golf where people to compete to win a hole. Each hole counts as one skin. The person with the lowest score on the hole takes the hole. If two people tie on the lowest score, the skin for the hole carries forward (so on the next hole you will be playing for two skins) or cancels out. How tied holes are handled is agreed upon by everyone playing before the round starts. Let me know if I need to expound on something more.

We can't expect Frank to pick his own brain for all the dumb n00b questions he's read! This should be stickied, but then again BroD's n00b primer thread was sticky-worthy, too...for a while.

Until I joined DGCR, I always thought the "bead" was literally the little nub of plastic in the center of the underside of the disc (left from some kind of centrifugal spinning process, I assume?).

I also used to think that all the Innova discs with marine life for the name (Shark, Stingray, et al) were floater discs...I never tested this, just believed what I was told by other n00bs when I started playing.

A circle 5 is a score on the hole where the person went out of bounds once.

So the "skin" doesn't necessarily have to be a monetary amount like a dollar? Skins can be beers, discs, or just a number?
