True. And I think that is unlikely to change.

To Three Putt's general point though, golf discs have and will likely continue to become more expensive. It's important to note that most of the...

It doesn't matter if it's providing support because it is prior to release. At the moment of release, there is no contact between the hand and the disc, therefore it's not providing support at the...

Fixed the bolded to highlight what's most important here.

If you haven't released the disc yet, it doesn't matter where your supporting points are. In fact, until you release the disc, there's no...

She's a teacher, but I'm pretty sure UPlayDG is her full time gig now (of course, that involves teaching).

I'm a retailer myself (have been for 15+ years). I am telling you, there has been NO increase in price on these discs from Discraft's side. Wholesale price on the proto Lunas was $10. Wholesale...

The difference in price between the 4x stamp and the 5x stamp is entirely up to the local store (wholesale price from Discraft is exactly the same either way). They're probably discounting the 4x...

Not from their perspective.

I only question whether it can be called sponsorship rather than simply the entry fee. Like when the TD does the finances for the event, does he list gross entry for...

Not an option allowed by the current rules, but in casual play, why not?

I've actually played such a mando. Hole was straight, ~170-180 feet long with a 4-foot diameter hoop about 30 feet off the...

I understand the sentiment, but the Memorial is not played on a golf course at all. It's two public park courses.

It is incorrect to suggest that golf course tourneys are "out of the way early". ...

I'd say it's less about putting restrictions on designers and TDs so much as putting more responsibility on them to put thought and consideration into OB design elements. If it's a water OB, perhaps...

Didn't occur to you that the affair might have been a one time thing? IIRC, Cat and Paul did reconcile after that and were together for a couple more years before calling it quits for good.

Is there a reason that changing the rule to allow for an out of bounds stance as long as the marker/lie is in-bounds shouldn't be considered? Or at least a reason that isn't an instinctive anti-ball...

Same here. Most miserable rounds I've played were 35-40 degrees, pouring rain, and 20+ MPH winds. I'd much prefer 10-15 degrees colder so the rain becomes snow.



This is exactly right. If...

FWIW, non-members pay the $10 fee primarily for insurance reasons. It's a temporary membership so they're covered under the PDGA's policy. So they're not really doing anything on "your dime".
