I still believe if you're going to keep score, then you play by the rules - take the strokes and learn. There's no harm in casual play and it benefits you in the long run.
That's why I would laugh, I don't keep score during casual play.

My casual play is not practice for tournaments. I play for fun. If I determine that rules other than the ones followed in PDGA play are more fun, I'll play by those rules instead. If someone is calling me on rules I'm not trying to follow then that would ruin my fun, hense defeating the purpose of casual play and I would avoid playing with that person.

I just want people to keep that in mind when playing with people you find on the course. Not all of us care about tournament play.

Just curious here - I play w/out scoring plenty.

Do you play casual (no score), tournaments (score) and then other rounds scoring (doubles, league, etc.)? Or is it all casual play with rarely any scoring?

No judgements. Just curious.

How much you wanna bet he pays a lot more attention to his foot faults now?

I usually don't call stuff in casual rounds. I play by the rules all the time mainly so I can judge my rounds and get an idea where I stand for tourney play. But I don't care if the others in my group do or not. If they are prepping for a tourney and want me to call stuff I will but if they are just having fun and don't care about the rules that's fine too. When it comes to somebody that gets pissy about it let em cheat in casual rounds and call it in the tourney when it matters. It'll get in their head to pay attention to their feet when they aren't used to doing that and you'll have the advantage.

yea i saw that afterward, but lets say if this was at USDGC and a player had faulted like that but no one caught it till a day after the tourney was done and they won by one stroke. Could they retroactivley change the outcome or since it wasn't called its like it didnt happen.

If we were ina tournament, I'd call it. And I'm sure everyone else would second it. IT they saw the foot fault, not the video.

Casual, who cares good ace :twisted:

No. You'd have to catch it at the time of the shot. If you didn't, it's all good.

Plus I was in Goldie's group when he aced it again this year, without a foot fault. Actually the tee board washed away so it's not really possible to foot fault now. Even if someone had noticed the fault I don't think anyone would call it, its a pretty relaxed league.

He aced, he brought beer next week, a good time was had by all. :D

haha, I like this one.

Well, I learned that I need to work on my foot faults, or falling putts. I was used to leaning once in a while on short putts, not knowing about the "demonstrating balance" issue. I'm getting out of that habit, but some people have been calling me on it. I take no offense, I just try to make sure I don't do that little step anymore. Still needs work, but it'll be out of my game soon.

I thought you had to be off the tee to foot fault. But maybe playing in concrete tees spoiled me. Is it like a disc being in bounds, if some of it is all of it is?

When someone foot faults in a big tournament If no one saw it or called him on it and i would approach him walking to the next hole and say "hey man, sorry to say this and i don't want to make you nervous but what you did on that putt is illegal." I would continue to show him what he did and what to do to fix it. "now no one saw that, but don't worry about it just make sure you keep behind your marker and make sure the disc is out of your hand before you step past your marker on putts that are 30'+ feet out."

I never stroke anyone for their first time because I guess I'm just a nice guy like that.
