Default Aren't Rules scenerios fun, here's another and I'll add a poll

Last weekend I was playing in a doubles match at a non-PDGA charity tournament and was not taking it seriously at all and I tossed my partners disc back to him before taking my throw (which is an obvious rules violation under the practice throw rule), but since we are playing doubles shouldn't that just count as my throw and my partner will still get his throw? or is it an automatic penalty stroke?

More to think about:
If I tossed it to him and the disc landed by his feet what would the call be?
If he caught the disc then a whole different scenerio applies, how would you call it?

I feel that if it weren't a PDGA event, then the PDGA rules shall not apply. Were any players drinking beer?

I agree with Smokin' Joe, but I chose a poll option anyway. 83% of statistics are false.

Nope, many players treated it like a PDGA event, but it was not PDGA sanctioned.

I chose "The player who tossed does not get to take his throw, but the partner plays on".
Sure it wasn't a sanctioned event... it was an event none the less. I play in quite a few charity games, and I always play them as if they were sanctioned.

I agree. People would still call falling putts and foot faults. Charity does not mean anarchy. I was just justifying why I would have "hypothetically " done this.

Honestly, I believe that the person who tossed the disc to the other player would lose his/her turn as that would be their throw. The partner better make that putt!

It's a non-PDGA sanctioned event....who cares about rules like that. Just stick to the important rules like foot faults, holding back branches, courtesy violations....etc.

I hope that nobody called you on that and that this is a rhetorical question.

Poll wasn't up when I posted, but I chose the warning to the team and both players throw. However, if the 'rules' were announced in the player's meeting, my poll choice would change to the penalty stroke option.
