P2 doesn't get the lost disc penalty if it's later discovered that their disc was picked up. They have 2 strokes removed from their score. 805.03D

More precisely, P2 gets the lost disc penalty and later gets two throws removed. P2 also does not get a misplay penalty, because when the disc was declared lost, it was officially lost and correctly played as lost.

oh right, p2 didn't misplay as it is abandoned/lost disc.

A drop is not a practice throw. Practice throws are disregarded."

It's definitely a competitive attempt to change the lie. It's just done from the wrong lie. For me the issue here is whether the wrong lie and lost disc are part of the same or are different "throws" and should be treated separately. I think I agree with Biscoe in that it is two separate but it just doesn't quite feel right?

It came up as I was answering a Reddit post with an example trying to stop some of the tide of misinformation that was being spouted and then realised I had no idea how this example I was about to give should actually be treated So rather than add to the misinformation I thought I would seek some clarity from a wiser source!

A case of unfortunate timing where the rules resulted in a less equitable judgment for essentially the same situation (IMO).
I don't see practice throw as an option. 811.D is clear on that.

I think that the odds of a random card having clarity on what the rule is here is roughly nil, because multiple highly knowledgeable people in this thread are unclear, or in disagreement, about what the rule is.

As to application of the rules, what would happen if the disc was subsequently found, but found OB? Would both the OB stroke and the misplay stroke apply? I think it’s the same principle, so I think the lost disc element here is making things more complex than they seem.
If they are not sure about the rule in the scenario you positioned, that sounds to me that the group is agreeing that playing a provisional will save time.

Your drive was lost. Your misplay was your 2nd throw. Those are two separate throws, so they get their own separate penalties.
Kinda what I see. The player threw from an incorrect lie. [Misplay under 811 F.1.b.= one-throw penalty added to score at the end of the hole]. The correct lie is the outcome of the original throw. [Actions -- Begin looking for correct disc, and after all have joined start the clock. If after 3 minutes it is not found the disc is declared lost. Go back to previous lie throwing with one throw added for the lost disc. The MisPlay penalty is added at the end of the hole.]

​Note I agree with those telling Chuck you can't intentionally continue. That's like intentionally skipping that long wooded par 4 I carded a 9 and 10 on the two previous rounds, so I'll only get an 8 this round.
