Angry Disc Thievery, a new kind of low

I've heard a lot of stolen/lost disc stories, but this one I personally witnessed.

So while at a workday today a buddy had a disc returned to him by another player. At one point he set this disc down alongside a creek with his hat, as we went about 50 yards away to gather rocks to create a walking path from one hole to another for when the path gets muddy. He was just out of view of his property and at some point, someone came along and took the disc but left the hat. Hope the guy forever plays endless rounds of horrible golf until he does the right thing and gives it back (his # is on the disc)

I must say this is the second story I have read where it really is the person that had the disc stolen that could be blamed. If there was a bag I could see maybe leaving it for a second but just a single disc is pretty risky.

Stop setting you stuff down and walking away. You could tell me I misunderstood the comment and you would be right.

I never leave any of the things I bring to a course out of my sight.

A ex-buddy of mine set down a pair of discs of his on the side of the fairway while we searched for a disc he'd shanked into the rough. We waved a group through, telling 'em we were looking for discs. They grabbed his pair of discs stacked on each other as they played through, then denied having them. He had to get in their face and threaten them with bodily harm. Being 6'3", 275#, it worked, but that was the worst I've seen of this. We reported them to the park security at Rolling Hills, but since they'd given back the discs there was nothing they can do.

It had his name and # on it, so even if he left it alone for a minute it's still stealing to take it.

Ever notice the type of people that play casual disc golf? I'm really not that surprised, they can go throw 150' tomahawks on every hole with it
