Default Leaving discs on the course

Anyone purposely leave discs on the course for others to find? I end up finding a lot of discs on the course and in lakes. Often I'll clean them up and take them to the course to see how they fly. Occasionally I'll end up with junkers that simply aren't going to make the cut. I'll throw them and leave them where they land.

Anyone else do that? I figure at least someone can benefit from the discs I reject.

If I find a disc on the course with no contact info, I'll usually ask around once, then leave it in the practice basket. I don't really need any more stuff I'll never throw.

I leave discs on the course all the time. I leave them in the fairway and I leave them off in the rough. I've even been known to leave a putter in the basket every once in a while. Unfortunately, it's never intentional.

If a disc has a number or contact info, I'll call it. If not, I'll try it out. If I don't like it, I'll pay it forward and give it to someone to help introduce them to the game. I don't leave discs on the course, unless the person I contact asks me to leave it somewhere there.

I did the same, gave a disc to my mom a 10 or 11 time KC Pro Aviar in rainbow with white/off white color to disc I found on the course a 174 or 175 gram disc. She used the Classic Aviar and I though this disc could be something she might want to try at some point. I use Magnets, Jawbreakers and one old hard Pro D stiff pre 2006 model I got from my brother in 2006 he used it for a month in his quest for a putter, The old hard Pro D stiff pre 2006 model is my windier putter to the point it is too windy and I have to use a Shark either my old Pro plastic one or my Star model both 175 grams.

If it’s got no number, i give it to a player who is new and in need of said disc. If it’s inappropriate for new players I trade it for DX Rocs and give those to new players.

There have been times I've thrown a disc (usually something I'm trying out) & it has gone astray. If that disc does not make its' presence known in a timely manner, I will call off the search & release that disc to the world. Obviously that disc did not feel we belonged together so it got itself lost in the hopes it would find someone else who could throw it properly.
