As if those custom frames are original at all anymore. Facebook made it easier to do now so of course everyone is going to do it. It's a fad that has little to do with one company's team copying...

If you're going to restrict players to only using it after throwing OB, yes. The rule states that any restrictions on a player's OB options requires Tour Manager approval, not just restricting to...

I think the solution that would render this rule moot, at least as it pertains to OB, is better hole design in general. If one takes a lie 1 meter from where their disc last crossed an OB line and...

But if you go with the time period where they have longer days, maybe we'd finally get that Worlds at the end of the season instead of the middle like so many people want. And think of the folks who...

It's only applicable if the 2 meter penalty is in play. I believe the idea behind the rule is to allow for players to take optional relief without being doubly penalized.

Relief has always been...

I understand laying out the cash for GBO so far in advance can be steep, but couldn't you simply get a full refund from GBO after Worlds is announced if Worlds becomes a no-go?

DG is going to Innova. From what I understand, he already has them in his bag and has been throwing them competitively.

I think the biggest roadblock to moving up the bid/announcement time-table is who is involved with the decision making. As Events Manager, Downes is the point man for these things. The problem is...

No such thing as the off-season in disc golf. I see you're in Maine. Not only do courses here stay open in the winter, but many will groom as well. Tees get shoveled and fairways/paths get packed...

In my experience, the first round always takes the longest (assuming each round is played on the same course/layout). I think a lot of that has to do with the random groupings. Even when groupings...

I think the assumption has to be that she got a better deal. That's generally the reason any player changes sponsors.

Wouldn't surprise me if part of her deal is DD throwing some hefty support...

Tournament/league rounds are the only ones that count for official course records in my opinion. Casual rounds are just that, casual. Rules are likely to be more lax, plus there's little pressure...

I had zero problem with 2 meters being the threshold and like Joakim, I question whether there was some sort of pressing need to extend it from 2 to 5 meters.

As for your questions about what...

True, but their volume could potentially increase if any online disc golf retailer shut down, so it's silly to single Innova's site out.
