Default Threw a disc I want to use again on next shot, but dont want to use mini

Basically....Say you throw a disc that is behind a tree. You want to have more space to throw it, but the disc you want to use is your lie.

Can you put a mini under the disc or in back of it by any chance?

I use 1 disc I love a lot. I hate when I have to pick it up and have the mini closer to the tree....less room.

The new “lie” rule allows you to have your supporting point in a 20 x 30 centimeter rectangle down from the back of your marker so it gives you room going 30 cm back from the back of your marker.

You must place your mini at the front of your disc. I always thought it was odd that you could/must change your lie by placing a mini.

802.06B
"Alternatively, the player may mark the lie by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface, touching the front of the thrown disc on the line of play."


Carry 2 of that disc. I always carry at least 2 putters for exactly this reason. If my footing gets worse placing my mini, I grab putter #2.

Why not use another disc to mark your lie? What difference does it make if it is a mini or a disc?

It is not legal to use a disc. Also, marking rules still apply and the other disc would have to be in the same position as the mini.

I am same with putters. I use twoin same plastic, well 4 2 in one plastic and 2 in another both sets have a more beat in putter for long putting labeled approach putter and another less beat in putter labeled putter in the top but then I can use the longer putter for the same short shot. Most molds except the few specialty disc like a left turn & roller Archer or for an uphill/Downhill putter do I carry more then one disc of the mold, though most other discs in the bag they are a more grip plastic except in 2 cases where the disc is only made in one mold like my midrange or a midrange approach disc hybrid, there I have 2 in same plastic and about the same weight.

However with new rules it is nice that as long as the foot is within the 20 cm wide x 30 cm tall square now that one can use mini and still get a better footing then with the old rules of having to be right up to the mini.

If you're the kind of person that wants to game the rules, then use the largest legal mini (15cm), place the mini vertically (touching the front edge of the thrown disc and the ground), remove the disc, and rotate the mini down to the playing surface.

Isn't that going to make your mini illegally tall?

Largest Legal mini height is 3 cm, no reason a min would be 15 cm not not be in the height rules.

Triple negatives are trollish.
