Default Throwing Another Player's Disc

I don't find a rule that specifically addresses this but also can't find one that outlaws it. I remember playing with a guy who said it was his thing to make at least one putt with a disc from all other players on his card. Is there anything wrong with that?

The equipment section 813.01 Illegal Disc only states that a disc must be marked and "legal," but can I make a throw with someone else's legal/marked disc?

I would add....if they allow you to do so. While there's no rule against just taking another player's disc out of their bag and throwing it....it would not be a smart move.

Playing with Cale, it's fairly common that he will ask for my putter after I make my putt to drop in his putt.

Not that matters in the spirit of the question (which I believe is meant for non-pandemic concerns) but currently most events using COVID protocols forbid a player from touching another player's equipment. At the moment, at least, if this was done at say, a Phase I DGPT and it was observed and reported, there would repercussions under 2.3B PDGA requirements for COVID event sanctioning.

So...yeah. Just an FYI.
