Preferably something short and fun. Your local city course, par 54, 4500', not too many complicated rules.

Yup, the only problem is deciding which is the biggest piece after you find them!

I used to be really good at Ultimate in college.

I found the biggest carryover from ultimate to disc golf was 120-180 foot upshots. I’m 890ish rated but I’d say my upshot game is 930 rated. Just throw at the basket like it’s a teammate cutting in the end zone.

Should have gotten manufacturers involved and given everyone who plays a neutral/flippy midrange. Once I started throwing a Mako things started clicking. They’re all going to be throwing Comets soon if the best ultimate-pro disc golf combo player has anything to do with it.

The real benefit to disc golf is the lack of teammates. Why share the disc with 6 other people when you can have your own bag of 5 or 15 or 25 mesmerizing bringers of joy?

Not sure.

From the PDGA-
"At this time, ratings are not calculated for doubles and team events, or in event formats that deviate too much from regular singles (some X-tiers)."

From the article-
"All competition will be governed by PDGA rules, and participants will all receive PDGA round ratings, which enable a performance comparison across different courses and conditions"

They did separate ratings for Superclass which this is a variant on- I would guess that to be the case here as well.

I personally dislike "performance comparison across different courses and conditions" based on ratings.

The UltraStar is PDGA approved for play, theoretically wouldn't have to be an X-Tier, right?

Competition Guidelines

These are X(C) Tier events under the PDGA rules, which allows for experimentation and more flexibility with rules and participation.

Individual Competition:

Divisions:

U19 Boys’/Girls’ - players cannot turn 19 before 1/1/2021

PDGA Amateur equivalent - MJ18/FJ18 (male/female, junior, 18 and under)

Open Men’s/Women’s

PDGA Amateur equivalent - MA1/FA1 (male/female, amateur, no age restrictions)

40+ Men’s/Women’s - players must be 40+ by 12/31/2020

PDGA Amateur equivalent - MA40/FA40 (male/female, amateur, 40 and over)


Play will follow the PDGA rules with the following approved waivers:

Players may only use USAU approved 175g ultimate discs from the Championship or General list. Youth participants under the age of 12 may opt to use any of the approved Juniors discs.

Mandos and out-of-bounds will be limited to those required for course safety (avoiding dangerous areas, hitting people, etc.).

Course-specific rules will be clarified by event organizers directly with participants prior to competition.

Scoring will be done according to PDGA rules

Players will earn PDGA individual round ratings based on their round score(s). Final rankings for the overall derby competition will be based on a player’s best individual round rating at the conclusion of the event.

Final round ratings will be announced December 8.

Players may play multiple rounds and may play in multiple events. Only a player’s best round rating will be used in the overall derby competition.

Scores will be reported through the PDGA Digital Scorecard.

Yes, but limiting disc types makes it experimental rules.

While players receiving ratings for comparison across the country, the x status also ensures that PDGA members don't have this rating compared to other rounds using all PDGA rules.
