Changing a 1-putt to a 2-putt is still score separation, there's no requirement that 1-putts become 3-putts.

The cost there is it adds rule complexity but doesn't speed it up very much (I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that players won't often go OB twice in a row). With stroke and distance isn't...

I think one potential advantage DG has over Golf is speed of play. Stroke and distance would just drag play times out enormously. I do think there's an issue with visibility of OB though. To...

I rarely get to play at courses. When I do they're usually in parks that don't ensure the course is clear of the public. I would pay to play at a local course where I can expect the course to be free...

So player's have an inflection point (or perhaps a discontinuity) in their make rate by distance (not surprising if it's not linear, but is montonic and ranges between 0%-100%). And so we conclude...

What do you do when approaching/putting in such strong winds (25mph+)?
Do you just lay up until you're about 10' away?
Do you throw upside down from 50' in?
