Hello world, I'm a fancy looking sports frisbee golfer!

Edit: Actually that sounds weird, nevermind.
It was the funniest exchange I've ever had. It was completely obvious he wasn't a disc golfer hahaha.

Perhaps we shouldn't be assumptive that because you find a disc with a PDGA number but no other contact information, that the person who lost it wants the finder to make an effort to return it, but wants to make a puzzle out of it. Maybe they just needed a means to mark their discs for tournaments since the PGDA requires it, and that's an easy way to deal with that matter. Maybe they don't care if that disc comes back or not. Maybe they just don't want strange people calling or texting them for a matter that isn't worth the time.

My local course has a Facebook page that discs get posted on, phone number or not. Works pretty well.

He was walking his dog on a hiking trail about 100' off the fairway where I absolutely shanked my drive. He was a good dude and shot me a text saying he (or rather his lab) found my "fancy looking sports frisbee". I met up with him at the course the following weekend during my regular weekly round there and got it back. If it's a disc I really wanted back, do you think he'd have known what to do with #45790 written on the bottom? Just saying. Know it's a looooonnnnggggg shot this ever happens, but I personally know it does.
Pretty sure I've had more discs returned to me from non-disc golfers than from disc golfers. It's a low number either way, but if memory serves I've had 3 discs returned by non-disc golfers compared with 2 by fellow frolfers.

Tucked into an overall sarcastic message, you may be on to something.

I returned a disc last week, the guy was still on the course. He was all like, no way! I literally just returned a disc to someone else!
