In terms of this discussion, the difference is one penalty throw. A "practice throw" is a throw that does not count for advancing one's lie, but is penalized with a one-throw penalty. "Optional...

Players were able to call their own violations for years and it was never really an issue. Well, people pretended it was an issue and the rule was changed to what it is now, but actual instances of...

Actually, it's the total opposite. Looking away during putts is poor etiquette since the rules compel players to watch each other's throws.

The USDGC arguably has. Some might say it was bigger for a while before they skipped a year and scaled it back a bit with the Performance Flight stuff.

Until about 18 years ago, there was only one Major in disc golf (Worlds). Until 2002, there were only two (Worlds and USDGC). Since then, there have been a handful of other attempts at regularly...

As the rules are written now, yes. Here's where it really gets stupid, though.

The rule used to say that stance violations could be called by anyone in the group (including the thrower). That...

I've already posted my thoughts on another thread, so I won't...

S&D wouldn't solve the issue presented by this incident with Wysocki at Worlds. It was on a putt. It was a falling putt within the 10-meter circle. No run-up involved at all. It wasn't a...

Cuts are fine. Cuts at the cash line/percentage are fine. The only thing I disagree with is the idea that players who "miss the cut" continue playing. If you're removing their chance to earn...
