If you putt the disc from farther away and it lands on top of the cage instead of in the basket, does it still count?

it only counts if your playing Winfield rules...

in Winfield and Wellington, Ks, for casual, league and non-pdga tourneys, we fudge the rules a bit for the fun of the game.

on top counts
if you throw it and it comes back to you (you dont have to step to reach it) it doesn't count, rethrow.
two drives on the first hole.

makes for a bit of fun and a break from the humdrum.
Dang, I wonder if we can get the PDGA to accept those rules lol!
Sorry , but No. Unless the PDGA changes the Rules.
darn, would have been a nice shot too. haha
now here is a question that will boggle your mind, if the basket is an elevated basket meaning the basket is about 5 feet hight off the ground and the two meter rule is in effect, if your disc lands on top and is about 2 meters is it a penalty stroke?
Most TDs have denounced the 2 meter rule!
DROT..... Disc resting on top....

The target is considered to be part on the playing surface and as such the disc is marked directly below the leading edge of the disc just like when you land in a shrub or a tree.... In the case of DROT it is always under 2M (if in effect) and is not a penalty nor is it in the target. So mark it and putt it.....
You must not be playing in NorCal
ah. makes sense. if you miss that putt though you should just pack it in and leave haha
Sounds like "Montana" golf. Any metal what-so-ever counts. I think it's lame. If the sports was easy, I would not be playing it...
Yea baby, I love NorCal.
I miss bumper bowling.
