If you are dumb enough to get hit with a disc when people yell FORE and keep screaming at you to watch out but you are not paying any attention and get hit, its super funny. LL wood has a side walk the runs through the course and is used a lot by joggers and etc...my buddy throws a 300-320 drive and its headed straight for a joggers head, its misses by inches and we were yelling and screaming for the jogger to get out of the way but NOPE was wearing a mp3 player while running around the frisbee course....and if the jogger got hit....it would of been funny.

I've been hit by discs on fairways where I was halfway done with a long hole, and someone pegged me without giving me any warning they were throwing. Next time it happens, I'm going to grab their disc, and bomb it into the woods. Or throw it back.

We're going to just have to agree to disagree on our philosophies on this subject then.

I'm right there with ya. I've been hit as I'm stepping away from getting my putter out of the basket. The guy started laughing but didn't think it was funny when I got pissed and threw it back.

Exactly. You need to be paying attention. I've been hit with a disc before. It doesn't feel good but still. You can't really think your never gonna get hit by a disc. If someone truly hits you on accident and your gonna cry about it then whatever maybe you shouldn't be playing sports. When FORE is yelled that means watch out. You always need to be alert. Disc Golf, Swimming, Football, or Baseball it's all the same. Be aware.

That is so much different though. I wait for people to get done. I totally agree with you if they are on the same hole and someone throws it. Take there disc and throw it in the woods. Teach them some common sense. Imagine if your on a hole and someone just runs on to the fairway. Is it your fault or the other person? That's kinda what happened.

He looks dead at the disc now within about 15ft of him.. He just stand there and gets nailed. I started cracking up because what are the odds.. But anyways I walked over there and he said something to me.. Wasn't mad or anything but wow.. His girlfriend was laughing hard too. Really awesome first drive. I wouldn't be loving it so much had he gotten hurt but maybe you should move when a disc is coming at you.. Not just stand there.
That's why he didn't move, you yelled 4 instead of fore.
