The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
player marks their lie then places their disc directly in front of said marker, does this count as a stroke? I have been told as long as it does not go 6 feet it does not count however, does that mean if I clank a 5 footer into the basket it does not count provided it does not go six feet? Or if I throw into a bush and I am completely blocked in then I throw my upshot and it lands in that bush less then six away that throw does not count because it went less then six feet?
I never place beyond my lie, have seen numerous players do it. I have been called on a two minute rule after helping a dude look for two cigerates for his, been called on a lost disc rule by a guy who claimed he was a pdga official from over 400 feet away while said guy was drinking a beer. been called on non marked disc when my name was in the Armour on the orc design.
I hate to have to put up with this crap and just tell people they are wrong and flip through a rule book. I know it sounds bad but to give them guys a piece of their own medicine mellows me out. I am playing bowling green tourny next week and want to have all ammo I can muster to, am sure a tourny of this caliber there has to be some real charectors
I have found Bowling Green players to be pretty relaxed about the rules. The same players at Worlds and hoo boy!
If you want to call something legit that no one ever calls, call the flying putt. You have to have a point of contact on the playing surface behind your mini when you release the disc. If that point of contact is in the air, it is a stance violation.
