You're missing the totality of the reasoning for shields. Shields don't cause more players to miss like a smaller basket would. Shields make 2/3 or 3/4 of the circle the "good side" where putting...

Well, unless you naturally throw 500' hyzers, then I'm not sure you can say those were "predictable routes that weren't NAGS". Nearly every approach shot of say, 225 and under with little...

Steve, I neglected to explain what I meant there by "lengthening the holes would exacerbate the big arm advantage" (speaking about those 600-750' par 4s). I wasn't talking about scoring spread --...

I have a video that was hit more than 20,000 times within about 3 or 4 months when I first posted it. https://www.facebook.com/araydiscgolf/videos/418699051823943/. Interestingly it was when a...

History lesson for the youngsters:

"buncr" is a portmanteau of "bunker" (from golf) and Casual Relief (from disc golf). It was originally spelled "bunCR".

I disagree with one claim Simon made -- that good shots were rewarded and bad shots punished. The second part, "bad shots punished: is hogwash. I SAW Eagle make not one, but TWO bad shots on a hole...

But did you see my original point? Lengthening these holes only exacerbates the big arm advantage. I don't think 775 or 800' is better. I think making more long par 3's would be better. Did you...

I don't think it's an outlier; IF what the OP posted originally is accurate (and I think that it is). If that hole is a par 4, like it should be & like he originally said, then we shouldn't be...

Correct. But once the player starts their routine, they have de facto stated that the area is clear and free of distractions. And the clock starts.

The clear and free of distractions is not a problem being undefined; it can be at the thrower's discretion... because the time limit for excessive time is specifically and well-defined. Players...

Yes. But the 750' open par 4 is so awfully short that the "scoring average" will be a half-stroke below par, primarily for the biggest arms. And even an average arm gets the birdie most of the...

Several people talking about the length; I think shortening several of those holes to long par 3's would make it more exciting -- and still encourage the big bombs. For example, if hole 1 is...

Rastav,

I am going to make a statement that designers know, but many players don't like. Sometimes on short wooded holes the clearest, safest line (and the one the designer intends) is NOT the...

FTFY.

On THESE 9 HOLES specifically, they were at 12:57 & 13:43 costing bogey by "going for it" after a good drive.

And again on 24:06 and 31:03 costing her a double when the pitchouts would...

Oh we live in a microwave world of the here and now. On Paige, she is also the definitive #1, but does sometimes have a tendency to "go for it" at inopportune times. Not nearly like Paul. How soon...
