Normally, you measure along the intended flight path for the skill level the hole was defined for. On doglegs, I usually measure about 10 feet off the tree(s) that defines the corner. The only time I measure on the direct line of flight on a dogleg is if a reasonable number of players would have the power to actually risk going over the top.
Quick question. I am in the process of building a course and have a question about measuring distances. Is is measured down the center of the fairway or on the preferred flight path? Also, we have a 90 degree dogleg, is it measured to the center then at the 90 degree angle? Thanks for your help!
What's up Chuck? Got one on the main page...need your input...."What Happens Next"....I'm fairly sure I'm wrong but would like to hear it from you... the ruler of rules...the guru of Q & A and all things disc.
Played golf with acquaintance of yours from your area last week...good player...Vie?? Vay??? Played night golf with us at Turkey Lake....T-2's new hole 1 debut under the full moon with Hos and some other locals.
Hey man.. you got to climb out of that socialite status...lol...bet you don't have the legs for it...need some cheesy points.. J/K
Hi Chuck, I have been playing less than a year and have really enjoyed the game. I am 59 and do not have a long arm, but have been working on accuracy. To that end, based on a few comments you made, I bought a 160 gram Zephyr and it has really improved my game. Thank you. I am interested in playing Super Class but don't know what my next disc should be. I know that the Condor and Jaguar are not legal for Superclass, but I use them off an on for regular DG. Any suggestions?
Finally, I live in Indiana and will be coming up to the Twin Cities this Thursday to participate in a 12 hour running race on Saturday. On Friday morning, I would like to play a course in Minneapolis or St. Paul and wondered if you could recommend a course for me that is not too challenging or long. I don't know if you have the time, but I'd love to play a round with you, but I know this is short notice and it is a Friday. At any rate, thank you in advance for any help you may give me and thank you for what you do for our sport.
I was hoping you could answer a question i have about a tournament. In April there was a tournament at fallasburg park in lowell MI. The April anhyzer. I believe it was the 1st sanctioned tournament at the course. There are no cement or rubber tees for any of the holes. There are no round ratings listed for the course. Is this due to the fact it was the 1st sanctioned tournament, the fact that there are no cement tees, or is it some other factor i am not aware of. I would appreciate any answer you could provide to my question.
Thanks for the quick response!
I will check back to www.PDGA.com later to see if they change anything on the official posting of the round ratings.
I have already passed along your explanation to the gang!
Ken Climo, PDGA#4297, Rated 1032 Rd.1-61, Rated-1039 Rd.2- 56, Rated-1039 Rd.3-61, Rated 1046 Total=178 (-38) Payout=$1,100
Hey Chuck, could you explain how the ratings are so low for the Champ after he shredded the course and the field?
-16 in the second round=1039?
Is it because of the fact that it is 24 holes?
Hi Chuck, I am running a dubs league this summer and I was wondering if you can help me out w a suggested pay out. I am collecting 5 bucks, one goes to the series and one to the club. Last yr, I did not take a buck for the club and paid 45%. However, now that I am taking a buck for the club, the pot is substantial less and I don't want last place getting 75 cents a piece. I would like to pay 30% (I know its top heavy), do you you know where I can find a pay scale for this percentage? Thanks in advance!!
