The problem is he doesn't announce that he's doing it so I'll set up and be about to release my putt, and suddenly there he is running in front of me saying "let me just clear that out of there for you." I know I've missed way more putts due to having my timing thrown off and being irritated with him than I ever will from bouncing out due to hitting his disc.

You could always say, "go ahead and leave that, please." To see if he will leave it.
I guess the point of my comment is that he's trying to help you. I've seen somebody putt into a basket with one lying flat and the disc dived in and bounced out off that flat disc. Even on the backside, if you hit on an angle and ring the basket, you could hit the disc and it jump out. There are far worse things to be irritated about
black udder wrote:wow, yeah, that's a much different scenario. I'd guess that's it's one of many actions that irritate you when playing with him. A shame. I play with somebody who has anger issues and is trying to control it. It's difficult for some people. For your sake, I hope you can figure a way to deal with it because somebody else's poor behavior shouldn't negatively affect your game, you know? Good luck with that.
p.s. the guy I play with got the picture when some of his friends told him they didn't want to play with him anymore because it was embarrasing when he threw a fit.
