That's the reason they go to such great lengths to avoid spoilers. If you don't know the outcome, you can still hope.

That’s a different can of worms. Hoping is unconscious nicing.

I wonder what happens to the space-time continuum when you put up a sign that says "NICE" on a heavily wooded hole like I did on #6 at Sand Ridge?

Hmmmm

Most time the "nice" is after the throw, but during the flight, and usually before a tree hit.

So I would vote, yes you can nice after the throw...

Nah. I think you quoted the thing I said... Essentially, I was saying I don't have patience for people who are legit bothered by someone rooting for them, or who complain about being "niced."

When we are playing casual rounds, my friend and I will do this to each other like right as the other is throwing.

Dead silence, lining it up, run up, then right on the plant..."Nice shot, Matt".

Usually it back fires and he does have a really nice shot.

We used to throw things (rocks, etc) at the discs as soon as they come out of the hand. Never saw one hit but it can play with the throwers head.
