Patent Pending is very descriptive. When the disc inevitably lands upside down, you can read the words Patent Pending on the bottom of the disc.

Around WI about 15-20 years ago we were calling it the "Hokey Pokey"

The Carolina Boys (Schwebby. Crump and McRae) tried call it the "Barry Schultz" because at the time he threw it better than the rest. He told them it was the "Hokey Pokey"

If you don't know Hokey Pokey you clearly have not been to a wedding reception in the midwest.

You haven't been around the WI tourney scene long enough to know the truth.

Including par 2.

While I agree that disc golf is it’s own game and should not be compared directly to golf, 18 under par flies in the face of what par means. Par 2 and lower pars in general would correct this diversion.
My thought as in the 2000's starting in 2003 but more seeing in 2005 that some tournament courses had to get updated for the newer discs mostly longer drivers in the 10 and 11 categories and due to the better play of the courses due to the specific training for Disc Golf got a lot better then it was. My thought since then is to eliminate the par altogether.

In South Dakota it was the Ass Backwards throw at the same time, that or Bass Ackwards.

No the Ass is backwards from a normal backhand/forehand throw, therefore that is why it is a Ass Backwards or Bass Ackwards as it was called in South Dakota up till just before Patent Pending took hold. There was a Fishing shirt that said Bass Ackwards on it that was popular at the time.
