    DGPT - Resistance is futile

    The scariest part of all that is "newly built". Still, I guess I'll live up to my promise of signing back up once they got rid of Vimeo.

    Gran Canyon Lawsuit

    Did you ever play with the MA55s at Worlds? I've never heard so much moaning about parts that don't work, are due to be replaced, or are new and haven't fully healed yet. Not to mention horrible-sounding diseases and syndromes, with a show-and-tell of bags, devices, and tubes. Then they need...

    2. At the most fundamental level (the definitions) they are based on exactly the same principle. Essentially, the score expected of an expert. Methods and parameters are different between the sports. As the paper shows, one parameter that does not carry over is the expected number of putts...

    Stop asking if you are outside the circle!

    Well, somebody must have at some point. "806.02 Out-of-Bounds I. If the thrower moves the disc before a determination regarding its out-of-bounds status has been made, the disc is considered to be out-of-bounds."

    Stop asking if you are outside the circle!

    It’s the thrower’s responsibility to know whether they are within 10 meters or not. Just as it is their responsibility to know which tee pad to throw from, which target to go for, whether they are using their own or someone else’s thrown disc to determine their lie, etc. However, good...

    Stop asking if you are outside the circle!

    You're not wrong, but it's not proportionate to area. There are about 10% more attempts from within 12 meters than from within 10 meters. (About 14% more within 13 meters, and 32% more from within 20 meters.)

    The Supreme Ecclesiastical Rules Official has no record of receiving your formal request. What would the future Rules Czar do about jump throws?

    Mapping Out Woods for Tee Signs

    There's never enough room for the maps you'd like to have. So making each map as big as possible makes sense. If you pull all the tee sign maps off of an overall course map and blow them up to fill each sign, the tee pads and targets will look bigger on the shorter holes. That will be a...
