I am an old skinny wuss who is out of shape and afraid of spiders. I enjoy both disc golf and golf. I can throw 270' on my best day. Yet I shoot in the mid 50s at all but the longest of courses. ...

I have a saying:

Both the best and worst thing about disc golf is that it is free and open to everyone.

97% of the players I meet on the course are great, and one of the courses I frequent is...

Buncr rule??

Does anyone know anything about this new "buncr" rule? Is it a replacement for OB? I read they used it as the USDGC, but I find the whole thing confusing. Can anyone explain in the leymans terms?

I also personally hate any of the "gimmick" discs, the wheel, (now illegal, for good reason) 10M brick, etc. It reminds me of in regular golf when they have a wedge with ad adjustable loft. No one...

I agree with the "pro par" I guess. The problem with using course par, is that there is no consistency from course to course on what a par 3, 4, or 5 is. When I am keeping score in my head, I...

Maybe a surge SS would be worth a shot, and a lot of people swear by the crush. All of those are too overstable for my arm. Look for discs that have high speed and are highly overstable, and they...
