But I like the Am Nats approach, if there's a cheater route via overhand, it ought to carry a penalty with it if you get it stuck in the trees.
That's bullshit. It's not right to punish a shot style, or call it cheating. Disc golf is NOT all played backhand nor should it be. This is the same thing as placing huge logs in a fairway where rollers could be used
to prevent that shot. No one sets up a hole like that.....or blocks the chances for a backhand, it shouldn't be done for overhands either. If the shoe was put on the other foot (artificial lake placed in the way of the typical bh shot, but the o-h route was left alone), the masses would be shittin a brick.
BTW I hate the two meter rule like most NE disc golfers...there are a lot of trees up here to get stuck in backhand or overhand. Mandos suck too. Not ranting at you...I just think this rule sucks
