What if my first thought was to cut through the fence with the multi-tool I carry?

Welcome to the secret society! The rule are indeed different, but we generally don't advertise them.

Proper And Appropriate Rules Of Disc Golf For Seniors …

Rule #1 A disc sliced or hooked into the rough shall be lifted and placed on the fairway at a point equal to the distance it carried into the rough with no penalty. Senior players should not be penalized for uncontrollable mechanical phenomena.

Rule #2 A disc hitting a tree shall be deemed not to have hit the tree. This is simply bad luck and luck has no place in a scientific game. The player must estimate the distance the disc would have traveled had it not hit the tree and can play the disc from there.

Rule #3 There shall be no such thing as a lost disc. The missing disc is on or near the course and will eventually be found and bagged by someone else, no call made to the inked number on the back, making it a stolen disc. The player is not to compound the felony by charging him or herself with a penalty stroke.

Rule #4 If a putt passes through the chains, spits out or deflects off the basket, without dropping in, it’s deemed to have dropped. The law of gravity supersedes the law of golf.

Rule #5 Putts that stop close enough to the basket that they can be dropped in, they may as well have been in. This does not apply to disc more than an arms reach from the hole. No one wants to make a travesty of the game.

Rule #6 There is no penalty for so called “out of bounds.” If penny-pinching park owners bought sufficient land, this would not occur. The disc golfer deserves an apology, not a penalty.

Rule #7 There is no penalty for disc in a water hazard as discs should float. That they do not is a technical problem that manufacturers should solve for all discs. Disc golfers should not be punished for manufacturer’s shortcomings.

Rule #8 Advertisements proclaim that golf scores can be improved by purchasing new discs, bags, boots, carts etc. Since this is financially impossible for the average senior disc golfer, a stroke per hole may be subtracted for using old equipment.

I don't see the option for bribing a kid to jump the fence with some crust plastic in your trunk.

You are a vandal and should be incarcerated for your criminal acts. I like how you think, you can stay.

In my day we jumped fences for old dudes out of respect; I'm not bribing those snot-nosed disrespectful punks with my hard-earned plastic.

2a. If your disc hits a tree you have your age in seconds to retrieve the disc and throw again with no penalty. A 60 year old gets a full minute.
