That tee doesn't look wet to me, and certainly isn't under water (note that casual relief is only allowed if the obstacle is immovable, such as standing water). Johne throws from it without issue...

That's a good description. Winthrop is a thinking man's course. It's as much a mental grind as physical because so much of one's success there is predicated on proper placement of every shot rather...

My understanding is that anything that results in a warning or penalty(s) being assessed should be considered an infraction and be noted in some way on the scorecard. That's for the benefit of both...

I think the ground itself ceases to be a playing surface at the point at which the line of play puts the lie on/under the rock rather than on the ground.

On video (https://youtu.be/NcktHKy4m9M?t=1m29s), even. No chains though. Front of the cage. Still an unreal throw.

But under the rock IS NOT A PLAYING SURFACE. We're not talking about stacked playing surfaces here. If there was a gap under the rock (or your deck) enough that a player could take a stance if the...

I view the rock as simply a continuation of the playing surface that is the ground rather than a separate surface. You can't walk on or take a stance on the ground beneath the rock, but you can walk...

Just got my Trooper yesterday. Was able to transfer everything I had in my Sniper except for my second water bottle, with a bit of room to spare. I liked that. Haven't had a chance to play a round...

When you can't reasonably take a stance on it. Seems pretty simple to me.

Also, why is the rock able to be a playing surface more or less by default if you land on it, but not if you land under...

I see where you're going, but I don't think Paige or Sarah left Discraft due to lack of recognition (well, maybe Sarah, but she did it so soon after her Worlds victory I'm not sure it was a factor). ...

TD doesn't need to declare that a playing surface in advance. It meets the criteria in the rule book (it can support the player and he can take a stance), it's a playing surface. MJ was 100% legal...

The good thing is that if she's going to be unsponsored as she claims (and I have no doubt that she will), she can keep throwing her Comets all she wants.

Leave the old commentary intact. No need to re-do that. When ESPN Classic re-airs old games, they leave the original commentary and, IMO, that's one of the best parts of watching that old stuff.

If you're going to be there anyway, there's no reason not to try to sign up for Sunday. They run tee times for most of the day, so it's not likely you'll get shut out.

I believe there's a first-come, first-served sign up for tee times at the pro shop during the tournament. Cost is $10 per person.

He was down 9 after two days. Made up seven on day 3 to enter the final round down by 2.

Barry was down one going into hole 15 (which is now hole 16 on the current configuration). He birdied...
