Not so fast. Brinster and Meresmaa shot 53s to pull themselves within four shots of the lead. At least a five-horse race.

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.

I noticed that too. He took an illegal stance there from what I could tell (I believe that the trunk of the tree is the mando that needs to the passed on the left).

For those who did not see, he came up a couple feet short of missing the mando to the right of the tree about 5-10' from the tree (if I remember correctly). All he had available was a short pitch to the fairway. When looking up the fairway, his stance was at about the 6 o'clock position when it should have been about at the 3 o'clock position.

He gained very little if any advantage at all from not following the rules, but in the most prestigious event we have.......

Oh no...here we go again with the rules police. Did it really help or hinder his ability to throw a simple pitch around the tree? Was any advantage gained?

I just don't get why anyone cares on nitpicky specifics if there is no real advantage gained by the player. No one called it because it's irrelevant IMO.

Rant over.

Next time he can take a stance three feet away from his lie. He's not really gaining an advantage. What's three feet on a 600 foot hole, anyway? Who cares?

It's the biggest, most prestigious disc golf tournament in the world. If we're not going to adhere to the rules at that event, why bother playing by the rules at all?

Yep, rules are rules. Even if you gain no advantage, show some common courtesy and follow them. We had to correct a guy on his stance on hole 4 because he was also lined up to the pin instead of the mando. We mentioned it before he threw, though. Not a big deal, he still made his shot.

Schusterick shot a-15 to move into a tie for first with Anthon. Brinster and Jussi also posted -15 rounds. Three best rounds of the tournament so far.

Awesome broadcast today. Although I overplayed the sound with Santana and Tiesto today. Good fun and great golf.
