Meanwhile, my state has announced that next week, the vaccine guidelines will be expanded to about half the population. Whether this means a stampede, or not, remains to be seen.

I had a friend and tournament opponent do that on a hanging basket. He was going to let it fall in, but the slight pressure caused the basket to swing away from him, and the disc fell to the ground.

I had a doubles partner miss a 2' putt once, forcing me to walk back from the next tee to clean it up for him. But that was less a matter of basket design, than brain design.

True, but 900' drives are infinitely easier in golf.

Of the many fallacies in equating aspects of golf to disc golf, using the same measurements rank pretty high.

Besides, I've seen golfers...

I used "communicate" in my post precisely because you had, and I wanted to tie back to it because I agree with you.

By "nuisance", I thought we'd all shut down tight for a few weeks, then open carefully and intelligently, keeping things relatively at bay. Not that we'd avoid death entirely, but that we'd keep it...

My governor has just released a bunch of restrictions, while at the same time asking people to "use their common sense."

Better design is, of course, a goal; but par describes the hole, whether designed well or poorly. It's the expected score. And if it's set as the expected score, it communicates, well, what you...

Seems odd to me that if a hole gives up a preponderance of birdies but no eagles, it's fine; but if the exact same hole gives up a preponderance of pars but no birdies, it's a problem. Yet, it's...

Not to mention the fact that in golf, a putt is a very different act from other shots; in disc golf, it's just defined by an imaginary circle and a special rule about follow-throughs.

At this point last year, I thought it was going to be a nuisance, at most.

I think the death toll was about 5,000 at the end of March 2020, just before it really exploded. I've been sort of...

I'm not one for quantifying errors. But off the cuff, it seems to me that par set for 1020 "experts" would hardly deviate from par set for 1000 "experts".

A 1020 player beats a 1000 player by about 1 throw every 9 holes.

Is his expected score on any given hole noticeably different?

And would you guess that 1 throw results from his errorless play...

It could be. Or in the course design thread. But the O.P. is lamenting the layouts at top pro events, so that probably qualifies it for a tournaments thread, too.

I won't mention how many times I went OB on those 10 holes.

But to make up for it, I missed putts from...

As soon as the ink's dry, someone should tell Discraft that people find the top levels of the sport too boring to watch, and there's no advancement going on.
