I'm glad that Sports Illustrated is on the disc...because they've been so helpful.

Dear Mr. Van Sickle,
How can you possibly justify the statement in your April 27th column that "disc golf requires no physical skill"? Please indulge us apparently skill-bereft disc golfers in your audience, exactly how much disc golf have you played? I ask because your statement certainly reeks of ignorance. Also, if you have indeed played disc golf, please fill us in on your estimated average driving distance, and roughly how many out of ten 30-foot putts you would normally make.

Sincerely, A longtime ball golfer, disc golfer, and now former SI subscriber

Thanks, I heard from a number of Basket Frisbee players. That’s what George Sappenfield, one of the sport’s founders, originally called disc golf. It’s a better name because Basket Frisbee has nothing in common with real golf and shouldn’t usurp its name. Basket Frisbee is to golf what hackysack is to football. One irate Basket Frisbee athlete said his 11-year-old son could surely outdrive me. If true, and it probably is, that just proves my comment. Very few 11-year-old golfers who weren’t named J.B. Holmes or Tiger Woods would outdrive me in real golf. Basket Frisbee is a game, just like hopscotch, tetherball or marbles, not a sport. You’re right, I should not have said Basket Frisbee requires no physical skill. I should have said Basket Frisbee requires much less physical skill than actual golf. I stand corrected.

I guess we should ask him why his parent publication endorses disc golf.
