Granted. Myself as well. But If that happens, I just let them know that I was only trying to look out for their interests BEFORE any violation occurred.

During an actual event, yes, it needs to be brought up. During a casual round with friends, meh. Unless we're playing for money or something like that.

If this is something you see often enough, which is what it sounds like, I'd say something before the round like "Hey, let me know if you see me about to break a rule. And I'll look out for you too. I don't know them all and will appreciate the tip". That way, a precedent has sort of been set. Just an idea.

For me personally, I know I don't know all the rules so if someone is honestly trying to help me, I'm ok with it.

I can tell immediately from the one sentence you posted that you're the exact person I don't want to run into while playing disc golf.

But to answer the question - i don't like being policed by rule nerds while I'm trying to have fun and relax, which is why I stick to casual.

Hard to tell how much sarcasm is being spewed, but FWIW...

Tournaments, league play, are all their own thing. I follow the rules pretty closely for casual play... maybe a mulligan or two, but that's MY choice.

It's far more important for casual players to exercise common sense, courtesy, safety and not to leave any aspect of the course in worse shape, than it is to follow the rules.

The public doesn't care if you follow the rules.
They do care if you're an @$$hat.
