"I throw them both forehand and backhand, though not terribly well. But here are a few basics for the beginner:
Understable discs are easier to start rolling, particularly backhand.
Overstable discs will go further, presuming you get them going…"
"I respect your opinion and distaste for "worst shot", but disagree with your characterization. The point isn't to reward bad play (as "worst score" would) or to penalize good shots. It's to require both…"
"I think Worst Shot works better in a bring-your-partner doubles than random draw. At the very least, it needs to be in a field divided by skills so that a rank beginner doesn't doom the team. It also works better on a course…"
"When our club first got tags a few years ago, they were described as "whatever you want them to be." Play for them, challenge for them, hang them on the wall, whatever you want. At least, that was the plan when they were…"
"You could use a challenge system, where someone can challene for a tag and if the tagholder declines, he forfeits the tag.

"Around here ace pots don't get that high---we have lots of aceable holes---but there are no restrictions on out-of-towners or first-timers. One of the arguments for the ace pots was to bring in more people to doubles."
"In all cases, the value to consider is retail, not the TD's cost. That's the value the players are getting. What the TD pays, or whether he pays at all, has no bearing. If they're getting stuff they don't want,…"
"How hard is it for the players with him to say, "Your drive hit the tree, your shot from there went in the bush, your shot out of the bush landed on your green, you made your putt---that's FOUR, not three."?
Honestly. Even among…"
"Yes, anyone can do either. You choose your status.
In sanctioned tournaments, pros win cash, ams win merchandise.
Entry fees are often lower for ams. PDGA membership is $75 for pros, $50 for ams.
Not surpisingly, competition is stiffer…"
