Missed Mando

What should you do if you miss a mando from the tee? Should you throw from your shot with a one stroke penalty? Re-drive with a one stroke penalty? Throw from your spot back around the mando? or anything else?

The way we played it was if you miss the Mando, you walk to a predetermined drop zone, and shoot from that spot (closer to the pin) and take a two stroke penalty. You also get a stroke for your first shot.

Mando = Manditory Obstacle

i.e. the disc must pass the left side of a particular tree.

Not sure about official rules, but we always drop next to the mando and take a stroke penalty.

Alot of times Mandos are to follow the way that the course is ment to be played also in other cases on some smaller courses they are used to protect other tee's.

My opinion is if your playing in a tournment or league ask them cause it may sound wrong but alot of places play it different ways.

Mando's are also used to direct players to throw away from safety areas, i.e. foot and bike paths.

i found this online, supposedly from the 2002 PDGA rule book. others may be able to verify if any of the information is out-of-date.

803.11 Mandatories:
A. A mandatory restricts the path the disc may take to the target. A disc must pass to the correct side of the mandatory before the hole is completed.
B. A disc passing the incorrect side of the mandatory results in a one-throw penalty, and the next throw shall be made from the drop zone, as designated for that mandatory. A throw is considered to have missed the mandatory if it passes the incorrect side of the mandatory, crosses the mandatory line from the direction of the tee, and comes to rest lying completely beyond that line.

The mandatory line is the line marked by the director or course designer to indicate when a disc has passed the mandatory.
If no line is marked, the mandatory line is defined as a straight line through the mandatory, perpendicular to the line from the tee to the mandatory.
In the case of a double mandatory when no line is marked, the mandatory line is the straight line connecting the two mandatories, and extends beyond them in both directions.

C. A throw is considered to have passed the mandatory if it passes the correct side of the mandatory, crosses the mandatory line from the direction of the tee, and comes to rest lying completely beyond that line. Once the mandatory has been passed on the correct side, the mandatory is to be ignored for the remainder of play on that hole.
D. When marking the lie, if the line of play does not pass to the correct side of the mandatory, then the mandatory itself shall be considered the hole for the application of all rules regarding stance, markers, obstacles, and relief. For the purposes of taking a legal stance, the mandatory object which has not yet been passed, and is nearest the tee, will be considered to be the hole.

Also, in a tournament I played in last year, we had a hole that was only 200ft. To make it more of a challenge, they put tape on the ground around the basket, making in "Island" and you had to land on the island as a mando, throwing from the tee. You got three chances to make it, each costing you a stroke. After that, you had to walk to a "drop zone" and throw from there. It was harder than you think.
