When I think of elite players who got there with skills other than elite distance, Leiviska comes to mind. His throw is so compact and smooth and accurate, and that compensates. Just from videos I'm...

Also there is the need to balance out the lower-rated rounds. To be 1000-rated, you'd need a 1020 round for every 980 round, and two 1020s for every 960, and so on.

Not angry, just pointing out that some perspective-taking seems to be missing. If you don't like the "noise of others", maybe you could consider that others probably don't like your noise either.

To everyone else but you, your noise IS the "noise of others".

This is why I don't cycle Rocs. That's an outrageously unreasonable length of time required to replace a lost disc. I play courses with OB water and discs need to be replaceable.

Any time you elect to play from the previous lie (which is an available option to the player), you would not only count the extra stroke, but add a penalty.

I think this could be a useful tool for redesign of a tweener hole on an existing course. If there's no option to move it longer to make it a legit par 4 (a better choice IMO), then move the pin into...

When it's really cold, mittens are way better than gloves. They hold more air so they're better at insulating, and they have a lot less surface area to lose heat. Also if you need a handwarmer, it'll...

Not everyone uses your style of "common sense". It is not "common sense" to count spit outs. You made the mistake of not asking them to clear their equipment, and you have to live with it.
