Lower air temperature, lower humidity and lower elevations all make the air denser. Hot, high humidity days here in the South sure seem to make discs a little more overstable.

Does anyone know if...

The golf equivalent would be the "wedge and putter" course, a course with nothing but short par 3s.

The equivalent of a putt/putt course would, to me, be a course with nothing but holes with the...

If the map is accurate at all, the course comes no closer than about 300 feet from the state line.

Maybe. There certainly is on backhand throws, I assume that, with good form, the harder a disc is thrown forehand, the faster it will spin. Just my opinion. It would be interesting to see some kind...

I get that the sportsmanlike and courteous thing to do is to educate the player on the rule before the throw. However, that is based on the assumption that the offending player doesn't know the rule....

It's a one shot penalty for going out of bounds. 1 is not the equivalent of 2 and never will be.

No OB from the drop zone. A player who lands in OB would have a longish putt at par. If there were no penalty, the person who landed OB would have a longish putt at birdie. I know you don't like...

That was kind of my thought, except to make the drop zone a very longish putt and keep the penalty. I.e., try to spread the scores between 4s and 2s. Lay up perfectly and have a good chance at a 2....

OB: Reverse Island

This thought hit me while playing a local course that is under construction. My thought was to have a reverse island during a tournament. That is, the island is OB off the tee box on a fairly short...

They look like they would be worn down to the Kevlar after the 17th hole on concrete tees.

Oh, and Oboz Firebrand FTW!

Welll, that certainly isn't my intent. My thought was to sell the cut as a plus. My tournaments are a significant drive for most non-locals and the thought was to both get an early exit for the...

Advisability, desirability and fairness of a cut.

I am thinking of expanding one of my annual tournaments to a second day with a cut to allow me to reduce group sizes down to three and have one early round on Sunday, giving everyone plenty of time...

If you do not land on the island, you must throw from a drop zone. So, yes, the TD is limiting the OB options. It's probably acceptable, but not officially approved by the TM.

This particular island hole might be one that would be approved. If you don't make the island, you rethrow from a drop zone but do not have to make the island when throwing from the drop zone.
