Default Updates to PDGA Tour Standards for 2016

Most interesting thing that I noticed-

3) Restricting a player’s OB options and the use of “Throw & Distance” Penalties
· As per PDGA rules (804.04.D.3), in order for a TD to limit a player’s choice of the standard OB options (marked one meter from where last
inbounds, the previous lie, and drop zone, if available) the TD must request a waiver from the PDGA Tour Manager.
· Requiring players to re-throw from their previous lie after landing in a marked area, with or without a penalty, is thereby only allowed with a waiver
from the PDGA Tour Manager.
· Starting in 2016, any event requiring players to re-throw from their previous lie while also receiving a penalty throw (Throw & Distance) will
only be sanctioned using the X designation added to the Tier level.
· Any rounds played using Throw & Distance penalties will NOT receive PDGA ratings.
TDs are encouraged to use less punitive ways to challenge players following standard PDGA rules. Establishing a forward drop zone where players
immediately have the option or are required to make their next throw after landing in a marked area is a more appropriate way
