We had a fun round of disc golf today at the Pro course. I did not score very well but my son did well. With the three of us playing we were able to spot each other's throws pretty well and nobody lost any discs today.
I ended up finding a DX Valkyrie on hole two so that was nice. I'm expecting it to be a bit too understable for most throws but I'm thinking about trying it out on some difficult holes by the river. If something goes wrong I will not be too sad about it. I don't like to lose any disc though, but unless you try something you really don't know if it will work or not.
There's still some debate over if I scored a five or a six on a par four. I made a pretty nice twenty five or so foot putt and thought I was doing good to save my bogie (at five throws.) My friend thought I hit five too because he was a stroke ahead of me at six. My son insisted that I had a six. The debate still rages on.
Usually there is kind of an unwritten law in casual rounds where you kind of take care of your own score. Sometimes people do forget and occasionally some people tend to pad their scores a bit. Usually it is not intentionally and generally we give the person the score they suggest especially if another person aggrees.
In causal rounds people tend to not watch each others throws as they should and they often walk in front and make a lot movements and talking. To me the point is really to get out there and have fun and try to improve while playing the best round you can.
If you get too worried about the score and other issues it can make it harder to have a fun round especially if things start to go downhill and discs get lost in the brambles or something. Still it is nice to get the score right and in this case I'm having a really tough time remembering exactly how it played out. It is kind of a hazard to having a bad memory for me and par four holes are harder to keep track of especially if you already have a bad score.
How do you guys handle disputes in scoring in casual rounds?
Here's one of the baskets today:
The flying saucer looking basket is one of the original baskets on the course. They are fun to look at but most are difficult to get the disc into.
Here's some sweet potatoes that will be cooked up soon for Thanksgiving:
The new DX Valkyrie disc:
Orange is one of my favorite colors to easily find out on the course.
