Everyone seems to think we need to change everything else to get scores to par. We don’t. We just need to honestly apply the actual, current, official definition.

Whatever the course is like, there is a correct level of par: “As determined by the Director, the score an expert disc golfer would be expected to make on a given hole with errorless play under ordinary weather conditions, allowing two throws from close range to hole out."

Subtract penalties and other errors from an Expert’s score, and an even par round should be rated pretty high, not 977.

Even more basic: as a way of keeping track of performance, it’s less complicated if a birdie fully offsets a bogey. For that to happen even par has to be among the scores that pay out.

That’s where par needs to be, no matter how hard or easy or open or wooded the course, and no matter how small the baskets.

And that's enough about the theory of par for this thread.

I really dont understand how people can debate you on this. Gimmie birdies/eagles need to disapear in DG as putting is not nearly the same as traditional golf.

Even lower level course pars often seem way off and those truly dont matter but it is like wtf?

That said, if you follow the rules, you're gonna get par 2 holes. And I suspect peer pressure means par 2 holes would get modified post haste.

Without reading through this entire thread, there were Big Jerm sightings Down Under, JT even made a comment about him in the final round coverage (when they made the same call lol). Seems odd that he'd travel to Australia, but not play. How come Jerm wasn't playing in the event?

He got some nasty stomach bug and couldn't get through practice rounds in the heat so was forced to withdraw.
