I think this may be where you're getting lost.

The definition of par expressly calls for errorless play. So, no, par won't be set with the expectation of strokes due to error.

Par would be set...

I think that should be one of the first questions. That doesn't preclude others. It's just that I very much want par to do the job expected of it, which is to indicate what an expert would expect to...

What's fun is handing a youngster a disc to try that's older than they are. "Here, try this. It's OOP because I bought this before you were born."

It's been happening since well before YouTube. Back when we used tin cans and string to communicate, this sort of thing would happen.

I think there's a threshold of X thousand throws that, once...

Heh. As I watched video of MPO rounds at WyCo (the county is called "The 'Dotte", round here), I was surprised at the listed par for some holes. Shoot, my rounds out there could be under par if I...

I picked up a 123g Helix years ago that was much the same. Lots of distance. Needed a wiiiiiide open fairway, though, because it moved so far side to side. With any wind, I could only guess the zip...

When I began playing this game, I threw everything underhand. To get a disc to fly, that's more akin to bowling than horsehoes. And it didn't work well for putting.

I can't quite justify $40 on a tournament. I'm not there for a player's pack. I'm not there to win a pile of loot. I'm only interested in playing some bad golf with other codgers who enjoy hucking...

The context of the discussion is that of attending tournaments. Nobody is speaking of casual play outside tourneys.

This is exactly why I quit playing in tourneys. I didn't mind if the TD made money off my entry because the TD is putting in a lot of work. When the entry fees for ams got boosted so the pro payout...

I'd drop the distance drivers for a long while.

As you seem to throw a lot of Innova, I'd say pick up a Mako or Mako3, a Leopard, and a TL.

That sort of surprises me, as it's us old farts who started the whole thing and developed netiquette in the first place. I remember that September where the hordes from AOL were unleashed and the...

If the Atom came in a really floppy plastic, it'd be my primary putter, replacing the Omega SS. As it is, I use the Atom for many approaches because it's smooth and controllable, with just a slight...
