If you have two or more playing surfaces stacked (ie bridge, stairs, etc) is there a rule that determines which surface you can play from? Or is it player discretion?

Another, somewhat unrelated, thing to remember is: A jump putt from 9.8m is still a foot fault even if everyone on your card said you were outside 10m. I can't imagine someone calling you on it...

This is already an issue when your disc lands in front of a solid obstacle and you're allowed to take your stance behind the object. Stances close to obstacles like that are actually pretty easy to...

Instead of designating an area as "no playing surface" It could easily be designated as either OB or a casual relief situation. These can both be done with existing rules as long as the TD is on...

The unsafe/Unplayable lie rule has been renamed the optional rethrow rule and involves going back to the previous lie with a stroke penalty. It really doesn't apply here because the OB lie would...
