You are right. There is really no excuse to not be calling the guy hitting his lie 35cm behind his marker. I have excuses, like the relaxed nature of the age protected divisions and such, but they don't hold water. This is really a conversation about the difficulty and stigma around rule enforcement. It is indeed a problem, as it is in non professional levels of golf. I am only providing my experience in AM divisions. If I have a guy on my card that is missing hit lie consistently, I am inclined to start calling it. I don't think I am alone in looking the other way when someone is missing their lie by 5cm once or twice. Absence of malice is not an excuse, but I will likely continue to use it as a guideline for most of my calls.

The PDGA rulebook states:
"Players are expected to call a violation when one has clearly occurred."

If you are able to discern a 5cm distance in real time, more power to you. I wouldn't call that because it's not clear.

Your math is off.

It is $50 to play one round of ball golf versus 3 or 4 rounds of disc golf.

"$70.00 entry fee and you get a player pack worth your entry fee." I don't care. I would much rather have lower entry fees and if I want to buy a disc from your van-store in between rounds or after the tournament, I will.

I just td'ed my very first B-Tier. All I can say is, it is real tempting to run am-only events from now on. After some of the shinannigans I encoutnered today I really could not care less about pro growth. Some of these people act like they are God's great gift to tourneys. Not one am gave me this big of a headache. Maybe the pros are their own worst enemy.

Of course, I am smart enough to realize not all pros are like this. Not even the majority of them.

You can't expect to post something like this and not share the details...

Hippies and potheads stifle the growth of disc golf ... Fixed the OP title.

Yeah you’re right. I’m not going to give details and therefore should not have posted that. After all the work I did to get that tourney going I was pretty frustrated last night .

If it weren't for hippies and potheads, you wouldn't be playing disc golf...
