Don't get me wrong, I wasn't in any way trying to denigrate Hannah's skills on the course or in media. She has improved tremendously as a player since I first saw her play in FA1 at US Women's a...

Spring can't arrive fast enough. I think we've checked all the usual off-season boxes now that we have the annual "why do we need to grow the sport?" thread.

For me, growing the sport means more...

This is the answer. Anything goes if it's done well, and with forethought.

There is nothing worse, IMO, than declaring anything in course design as outright bad or disallowed. Make players...

Was pace of play or length of rounds an issue at Worlds last year? I don't recall any complaints about it, particularly from any of my friends who were there and playing in the same pool that he...

Rick threw Innova for years (including when he was with Prodigy). He's been posting Instagram stories where he's been pulling out some of his old Innova plastic. I don't think the learning curve is...

Yay, more vague insinuations that somehow the amateurs are getting the short end of the proverbial stick. What is the PDGA not doing for the amateurs that, if they did, more would be more inclined...

My point was more that the sport, even upon reaching the Olympics, would still be fairly low visibility. The only way it would get any kind of prime time mention would be if something notable...

It's cute that Chuck thinks that if, by some miracle, disc golf makes it into the Olympics, it would be in a prime time televised spot. Like NBC would feature the spectacle of night snow disc golf...

The bolded is the crux of it. The goal of any TD should be to fill his event to capacity. Seems counter-productive to do anything that would hamper that goal, including making it member only. ...

I'd categorize "big arm" as anyone who can throw 400+ without max effort. In other words they can do it with a hyzer throw that stays more or less on the hyzer line. They don't need to get a full...

It is entirely situational and I think it has to be entirely situational. If you put an exact distance on it (call it within X of OB), you're still creating a situation where a player who is near...

The rules don't grant the player in your second situation "benefit of the doubt". The group is doing so, arguably against the rules of play.

Rule 812.B.2 requires that all players "[w]atch the...

First, you're mis-using the notion of "benefit of the doubt to the player". That really only applies when a ruling can't be reached by the group. Like if his disc were perilously close to the OB...

I'm not 100% sure this is what brutus means, but I interpret torque and power to refer to arm speed while snap and spin have to do with wrist action.
