Well, it should be no different than calling a course with 3 tees and 3 baskets per hole a 189 hole course.

But its good to see that Texas is now the undisputed disc golf mecca.

Nah. You can try to restate this as much as you want, but the player received a two stroke penalty. If you want to call a penalty a "benefit," then so be it. But the player's poor math skills didn't...

No, the player doesn't get a lower score. He gets his actual score plus two throws. The incorrect tally that the player turned in wasn't his score and that is why he got penalized - and ended up...

Nothing particularly groundbreaking; the player gets two penalty throws. If you are suggesting that the player gets a windfall, then you simply don't understand how that rule works.

I think that would be a perfectly fair outcome for a variety of reasons. First, a player who doesn't play the same course as all of his competitors, for whatever reason, should pay a fairly heavy...

Are you throwing with forehand or backhand? Wobble or no wobble? Flat or Hyzer/Anhyzer release? More or less distance than before?
