Default The direction of Disc Golf

How do you feel about the current direction of disc golf?

Do you feel drastic changes such as smaller baskets, or chainless baskets are needed?

Or do you see the current rate of growth as an indication that DG is already on the right path?

DG is definitely currently on the right path, "we" shouldn't be complacent though.

I feel that things are moving in a positive direction. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It's about context. For some stakeholders it's going great, for others it's treading water and for some it could be better.

No smaller baskets or chainless baskets, thnx. I think that comes about less out of actual need and more because people are comparing scores to ball golf and think disc golf isn't "hard enough" in comparison. Let's just keep comparing disc golfers to each other, thanks. It's trying to solve a non-existent problem.

I don't particularly care about DG growth one way or another.

Discs are too big and too easy to throw. Make them smaller and heavier.

Yikes. The sound of chains is probably the most iconic thing about the sport of disc golf. If you randomly played the sound of a putt going in I would immediately know what that sound is and be filled with images of disc golf. Removing the chains would be a terrible horrible decision.

Stop thinking disc golf is more than what it is. It's a fringe sport and a great activity. Stop concentrating so much on the pro tour and keep the focus on the casual players.

I guess the exact size and weight does matter. Regardless, I promise I would beat you every time with those 30 lb tungsten minis if I gave you a 1 oz paper Ultrastar to throw!
