Bag Tag is normally used in a disc golf club where each member gets an actual tag to attach to their bag with a corresponding number of their "standing" within the club. Members can then challenge each other to play for their tag. So if I challenge Joe Shmoe he would have to have a higher tag number in hopes that I would beat him and earn the higher tag number. Does that make sense? Each club has their own set of rules regarding challenges as well. it is simply to encourage friendly competition between club members.

You have explained it well, but just to be clear the "higher" (BEST number) is typically the lowest number (1). I am sure that being clear just confused anyone that thought they understoond . Also you can go to www.MGDGA.COM if you want to see a clubs complete rules for Bag Tags.

I completed a set of 10 today, thanks for the great idea. It cost me all of about $12, I had to buy new printer cartridges but I had that expense anyway. I am going to try an post a picture of them. I think they look great, let me know what you think. Thanks.

So I assume you can collect more than one tag, right?

Let's say you're the highest ranked person (so you have the #1 tag). And you are challenged by someone holding the #8 tag. If you lose, you swap tags? What if you have the #1 tag, and also the #3 tag. I assume if you lose to the #8 you would give that person your #3 tag and not your #1 tag, right?

I know I could probably read through all the rules on the site you provided to figure this stuff out -- so I'm sorry for being lazy haha

The way I understand it is, if you have #1 than you can be challnged by any other number. If you defend your title (#1) than you keep it, if you lose than you take whatever number they had. I do not think you can hold two tags at once.

I am not sure about this but I think that is correct. I am going to try an go over the rules tonight. Someone, I am sure will come along and correct me if I am wrong. I am still learning the bag tag thing, I just thought it would add a little more incentive, braging rights, to the group I play with. We do not belong to a club so my bag tag deal will be really laid back, I will see how it goes.

You shouldn't ever have more than one tag because anytime you play someone you either both keep your tags or swap tags. You would never take the other persons tag with out giving him yours.
