I say kudos to PDGA & the BOD. Now we'll see if they have the fortitude to extend the prohibition to all PDGA events.

Discuss…

No offense to any of you guys who smoke during rounds but it always pisses me off when I get put in a group with a smoker. This is awesome in my opinion.

I try not get upset at something as trivial as someone smoking during a round. But it does get annoying when it takes priority to them throwing. I like this rule. I think it should be one of those rules where it is up to the TD to decide(like 2 meter). Also a good "image"

I don't smoke and don't care about getting put in a group with smokers but I know a lot of people who are gonna be pissed if this gets extended to more events (I could see them extending it to NT and A tiers next). It will def make the game look better in the public eye.

Anyone else want to see a new Barsby impression of KC's reaction to this?

what about one of those fake e-cigs? I'm not a smoker so this wont effect me but are we going to see guys coming outta the woods waving off cigarette smoke like we do now with other smoke?

i am a pretty heavy smoker myself and not smoking during a 4-5 hour round is going to be very stressful and irritating for me to say the least. yet i am not going to stress over it too much, ill just chew some nicorette or use a patch or something.

You were a respectful smoker whether you were trying to or not. It is really the people that blow their smoke on you or are up wind from you. I never had any issues with you.
