This past weekend during the April Fools Fling tourny at Tombigbee state park in MS. a couple of donkeys wouldn't wait for us to get out of the way ( and no we weren't playing slow we also had to wait on the group in front of us) and twice they throw disc into our group.
I guess it would be my action. about to throw a group of 4 of us watched as some total zipperhead walks right in front of us. We YELLED. We WHISTLED. And he did not once look up from his phone. So in a normal absurd statement I said 2 bucks to the guy that hits him. My buddy stepped up and threw a mellow forehand that if we hadn't yelled even more it would have tagged him. Sorry it was a frustrating day
1. Incident was I was walking away from the basket with my group and a neon green champion boss comes flying right in front of my face (it was that close I knew what the disc was) I was pissed. So I yelled (NOT CLEAR JACKASS!!)
2. Yesterday at veterans park I was playing alone (So not a slow game) And Everytime I would get to my first drive, the 2 morons behind me would tee off. I finally said, hey since you're not going to wait for me, how about you guys go ahead and play through.
I was playing in a tournament . There was an idiot in the foursome in front of our group that took a leak in a bush dead in the middle of the fairway. We had a few choice words for that one ! So stupid ya gotta laugh !
In my very first tournament at Sugar Bottom in Iowa City, my attention was drawn to Hole 18 fairway where a top pro was practically chopping down a tree with his chair while cursing loudly. When I questioned if that was proper behavior, the response from the others in my group was: "That's ok, it's just Jason!"
Another time I was playing a tournament at CP Adams in Hastings, MN. A top pro on a nearby tee throws a shot and starts cussing very loudly, kicking his bag and throwing a complete tempter tantrum. All the other guys in his group are literally rolling on the ground laughing hysterically. The ladies and I issued the player a courtesy warning since it was obvious his group wasn't going to do it. Apparently they figured he was already adding enough strokes to his game.
I will say times have changed since then. Players are much better behaved and more likely to make the courtesy calls these days.
Yep, I would have to agree with Ed......while tantrum's do suck, they are temporary. Graffiti, vandalism and circumventing course design by selective cutting/trimming/bending/snapping are by far the worst examples of poor Disc Golf etiquette.
I didn't witness it, but one of our young locals here decided that the best way to get his disc out of a 50ft spruce would be to chop it down. It happened last October and I still get angry every time I walk by the tree or think about it.
