This to me is one of the most important "rules of etiquette" in disc golf, that is often ignored or loosely followed.
When I play a tournament round of dgolf everything changes including my putts, unfortunately. From the amount of jocularity to level of your voice and even the way you walk
, everything changes, or at least it should. Tournament golf is serious whether you like or not. That doesn't mean that it is not fun, it just means that there are times to talk and there are time to shut it up. There are times to walk and there are times to stop.
Most importantly, the issue at hand, there are ways to walk the course as a group as to not interfere with others play.
This means having a heightened sense of alertness and consideration for others lie's and field of vision.
After everyone has tee'd off, many players tend to rush ahead and go straight to there disc, even though they might be in another player's field of vision, who is out and is first to throw.
-There is an easy fix to this problem. Stick with the pack and travel from the farthest disc to the next farthest disc out and so on.
-Always stand directly behind the person shooting but giving them plenty of space so they don't hear you breathing or zipping up your jacket or fumbling with your bag.
-Every player has 30sec from the time they get to there disc till' the time they are expected to make a shot. This is plenty of time for anyone to pick a line and prepare for there throw.
Essentially, you should pretend your are part of the gallery for each player in your group and act as so.
Hopefully this diagram makes sense, I know it looks stupid and menial but there are so many players that ignore the way you are to walk a course during tournament play.
