Where your creativity and thoughts end, mine continues. What im suggesting is already happening on a small less noticable way.

So its a matter of practicality..i get it, hauling around a small set of baskets to every pro tour event can be expensive and time consuming....

Well, covid has just shot a huge amount of money into disc golf. Jeff spring (or whatever his name is) travels to all these tournies anyway. Your saying he cant pull behind a small trailer or hire someone to pull a small trailer of pro level thin baskets to his events?

That the idea of that cant happen?

If disc golf continues to grow at the rate it is, the money will allow for all types of unpractical changes.

This idea to take away jump putts is terrible. You are taking away the only entertaining part of putting.

Just walk down this thought process with me. Its a fun walk, just hold my hand and we can make this game better....together (heart emoji)
Though the offer of kindness is appreciated. I think this issue has been put to bed some time ago. I am sticking by a firm no, to changing 36 baskets, a dozen times a year for my club's tournaments. Or my dozen or so local courses.

I am sure, if you want to keep on flogging the mare, you will find a guy interested here.

Sorry for entertaining the drift, back to the rarely discussed topic of jump putting.

If you were to call someone for picking up their mini too fast, which rule would you cite?

So, while there might not be a penalty (there is not) for picking up the mini too fast, you say that doing so would cause the player to forfeit his previous lie and prevent them from opting to abandon the throw (809.01a) on a throw that lands OB or in an otherwise undesirable area? Can you cite the rule for that? I don't think there is one.

The practical problem I have with a C2 jump putt rule is that eyeballing and walking off C2 is FAR tougher than walking off C1. For DGPT this isn't an issue, they mark it off with flags, but for other events it could be a huge issue. Right now I can fairly easily walk off my 13 paces which I know is roughly C1, double that to 26 paces and I am willing to bet the inaccuracy gets out of hand.

Imagine getting the obligatory "Am I outside?" question on an unmarked green and having to make the call on whether you are inside our outside of C2. It is sometimes tough enough with C1, can't even imagine C2.

This rule change brought to you by Bushnell range finders, your trusted range finder of local c tiers.

I haven't heard any chatter about it through any official channels in the PDGA.

I guess people are always talking about it on the internet, but there's nothing new about that.

Especially now you are bringing in even more woods and other obstacles (how can I walk it off when I can't even see the guy). The game has to progress with the skill level of the pro's but we are stuck with a basket from 1975. The basket clearly is too large and this large basket era has been creating numerous problems like-

-18 under par rounds (for the casual outsider that can look ridiculous)
-Raised baskets (Incongruent and also causes more spit outs and cut throughs)
-Artificial OB and especially it's overuse (it doesn't look good first of all, second it is not many if not most times equitable to how a throw was performed)
-Lack of fairways creating a massive luck factor (if I want to gamble I can go to a casino)

The result has diminished skillful play. Has made disc golf many times either boring to watch or just silly. I just see walls of trees, no true fairway. I want to see the best players challenged yet be able to pull the shots off sometimes. The current trend has been a disaster in my opinion.

So let me get their straight, putting is too easy and low rounds are bad, but fairways aren't clear enough and only "lucky" players can miss trees?? The amazing thing about watching pros throw is just how lucky they get on wooded courses. It is almost as if they are TRYING to miss the trees!

I'd be a fan of a jump/step putt ban.

Sorry for entertaining the drift, back to the rarely discussed topic of jump putting.
Are you part of the dgpt tour? Do you run one of those events?

And i believe the reason to get rid of jump putts in circle 2 , is trying to have the same affect as my suggestion.

Both of the ideas have a common goal. Thats why it will be part of any discussion that affects putting.

In my humble opinion. It will suck to get rid of circle 2 jump putts. I feel the majority do not want that.

And yes, i will leave this alone...but i guarantee it will not be put to bed. It will be a reality in my life time
