Does it bother u when others play music while u shoot? I for one think it helps u to tune all noises out making u a better player. Others dont like it at all...What about you???

I like it when people play music. I don't really notice it affecting my game at all either way, i just enjoy getting to listen to music throughout a round.
Love the tunes. Jam the tunes. As long as the artist isn't trying to swallow the mic.
I think I would find it distracting if the player is not wearing headphones. However, it's never yet happened to me.

I'd prefer not to listen to music while I play because one of my major pleasures from disc golf is enjoying being out of doors and the outside environment. Music might drown out the wind in the trees, bird sounds, the "ching" of a solid putt, the crunch of autumn leaves underfoot, etc.
Thanks for the input mikelroy....!!!!

Distracting, I have had it happen on a number of occasions and I find it very annoying. I am in the woods and fields because I love the game and I love the natural enviroment that comes with it. I don't mind if someone has earphones on and is listening to their tunes, but don't share your music assuming everyone is going to find it enjoyable also.
I think during a league event or tournament people should have enough respect for the other players and the game not to play there music, but I see no problem with it if you are playing a casual round. Unless of course someone asks you to turn it off or if it's that yelling crap I can't stand
It should be a group decision if music is played out loud.
It generally doesn't bother me....Kick out the Jams...Brothers and Sisters!!!!!!

But when it's dead quiet...and that local shmoe decides to pick up some palm fromes at that precise moment your releasing the disc...then I say beat them within an inch of thier pathetic lives.....LOL!!!!

Other then that...already present distractions are not that big of deal to me...it's that sudden change in ambient noise right at the crucial moment of concentration...that may get me...even then I have a pretty focused shot routine and it doesn't normally effect the outcome...but when it does...I will let you know about it.

I can definitely groove to some tunes!!!
I prefer to hear a "FORE" rather than music actually.
POINT TAKEN----After being struck several times,(yes thats whats wrong with me) in the head i can relate to your blog......thanx.

I had music playing from my bag this morning, but no one else was around.
I played music during the tournament I just ran. But only during the time in between rounds. If its a serious competitive event then.. no I dont think music should be played. People need to focus, some can do it with music and some cant focus at all with music on. I think the majority of the latter is true.
