Let’s be honest, for most of us rec players C2 is just fairway.

Also if people are using UDisc, when it comes to determining C2 (since rulewise it’s the same as fairway) why not just use the “distance to pin” readout on their scorecard? Should be close enough. And if the pin locations aren’t mapped, well, play a round where you’re the good guy and map it.

C1 & C2 come to, what, about two miles of paint, per course?

I'm inclined to let them guess whether a missed putt was 65' or 70'. (Then again, I don't put too much stock into any stat that lumps 35' putts and 65' layups into the same average).

Ok, ok. Some people are using the straw man to get ridiculous. Two miles or paint, etc. I’ve seen other methods of noting the 10m circle, most notably whiskers (spaced out) or a 10m chain or rope on each basket.

Let’s stay within the crux of the OP and not get fixated on “paint.” From what I understand, no 10m circle is ever official; it is a guide. If you felt or knew they were off you certainly have a right to check with your card mates if it’s your turn, and get confirmation. I’d think it was chicken s—- to call someone else on a fault by using such knowledge without saying something beforehand. Heck I do that even if it is marked correctly. Something like, “just so you know your inside the circle and if you fall forward or catch your balance in front of the marker it might be a foot fault” BEFORE they throw

Apologies. I got lost in the digression of Biscoe saying he had to mark Circle2, and mentioning paint. (The two miles isn't hyperbole, it's actually an understatement). Hundreds of whiskers will work, and of course at 20M it doesn't have to be exact. Though I'm still skeptical that it's worth the effort, anywhere below top-tier events.

You're right that the 10M circle isn't official. If it was drawn well, I can imagine players abiding by it, though.
