He went through the process as it exists so I don't think that is the case. I do think that the rule he asked to be able to use was poorly thought out.

Again most college's disc golf teams really only have access to one qualifier to make it to Nationals so at that point I would be damn sure to exploit any advantage that would help my team qualify.

Also you may be able to find a baseball player who can bomb a disc but he still needs to putt and approach etc and while it may work out it team format the chances of that player doing badly in singles is quite high.

We have a local course that has a triple mando to prevent OH throws.
Too bad there's no restrictions on poor design...

I have not played it since they put in the triple mando.
It's their right to have the triple mando, it's my right to stay away.

However, these college kids were not given a choice.
I'm sure I don't know the whole story, but from where I sit, it seems a poor decision.
If this course has to get dressed up with triple mandos or restrict OH's to make it competitive, why on earth is a state tourney being held there?
Simply baffling.

This conversation came up at leagues on Sunday, it bugged me for the entire 3 holes of discussion and not once did I offer an opinion.

I’m about to talk to Yeti for a recap article for Ultiworld and plan to hear what he has to say about it.

Disc golf is at least 30 to 40% putting. So you can go and recruit a CFer and have him toss overheads all day along, but can he putt?

He'd be so good at throwing thumbers that he wouldn't need to putt. He'd probably ace EVERY HOLE. Thats why every year at the PDGA worlds the winner throws majority thumber off the tee.

The courses you refer to in your above example limit a person's shot by impacting "where" they may throw the disc. The rules waiver directly impacts "how" they may throw the disc, and in that change of adverb so is the change of conventional discgolf.
