OB rules?

Me and the guys I play with always play sidewalk and beyond OB, water and beyond, street and beyond, and 2 meter rule. We like playing all of those things OB because of the challenge and I think that it has made me a better player for it. You cant just throw wildly and you have to place shots sometimes. Now on some courses it comes into play far more then others for sure and scores can change big time if you dont play everything OB. And I know the 2 meter rule is optional nowadays but most tourneys down here, they still play it. So my question is, does everyone play this way? Why or why not? Any thoughts?

Only if it is marked on the tee sign or stated at a players meeting. Sometimes OB is added to level out righty/lefty differential on courses here

IF it can be thrown where it is, I throw it from there. If there is absolutely no way I can, I go for 2 meter. That is probably only if it goes it water or it ends up on the other side of a real busy street.

During a casual round we normally play normal OB's such as pavement, gravel road, etc. However we do play that if you throw in the water you don't have to take a stroke if you are willing to hop in and play it like it lies. We just have a river that runs through a few holes on my home course so you can always see your disc in the water unless it recently rained.

Well on Tiger Woods disc golf anything not in the fairway is OB... even sand traps.

Not that this info helps at all, I just want to complain.

Tiger woods can go crap in his hat, we'd all kick his ass in disc golf!
We play by whatever is still in effect from the last tourney, usually. Surrounded by water is always OB as are marked trees. Make you ready for the next tournament.

I never use to play OB. even if a sign said OB, it wasn't to me. in the past 6 months or so, i've changed my mind. I play whatever is marked as OB and 2m rule and that's about it. But i like the idea of making a course harder than it is with Mandos and OB.
