Default Par Talk

Hello, my name is Steve, and I have a par problem.

If you are reading this thread, you may have a par problem, too.

I first suspected I might have a problem when I went through withdrawal after the “What is Par?” thread was closed. But, it wasn’t until a recent bender of late-night overly long posts on unrelated threads that I realized how damaging my problem could be to others.

Taking up space in other people’s threads is bad enough, but the real tragedy is: What if someone wanted to re-read something about par and couldn’t remember which thread they read about it in? [Shudder]

So, I’m starting this thread as a safe place for par talk.

Please join me. Whenever you feel that need to talk about par, come here.

Whenever you feel the urge to say anything about par in another thread, just come straight here. Don’t even post that you will be talking about it here. Anyone who cares will be know where to look.

Welcome to par talk. We're here to enable you.

Something something too easy, something smaller baskets, something something 70 under is silly.

You probably should have posted this on a golf board. Disc golfers can't even bring themselves to acknowledge that their sport partially named after a sport simply named "golf." You can't really expect them to understand par.

Is this thread only for the par-addicted?

Because I'm not, you know. I might indulge heavily in par-talk, but I can quit whenever I want.

(In fact, I've done so hundreds of times).

Par doesnt mean jack.... Only the number of times you throw does.

No par values. Less spectator interest. Less sponsor money. Pro tour doesn't survive long term. Imagine explaining to Adidas that we don't assign pars in our game because no one could figure out how to do it or decided to hide them because the scores made the sport look too easy?

Par is most important to the person who just threw a bad tee shot--apparently. because that's when people usually ask "what's the par on this one".

For those of us who are lazy, you need to repost links to your articles, and a brief summary of your par model.

Does this mean that Chuck is going to start a basket mods thread?

I always enjoy chuckers that ask "what's par on this hole?".

Who the @#$^ cares? Just throw your newb hyzer and move along.
