  • Drive For Show or Putt For Dough, 17 March 2012, Cascades Gateway

    The "Drive for show or Putt for dough" disc golf tournament is the brain child of Chubbyman. He wanted to force players to putt in a stroke-play format. This is how it works;

    -Players will receive a glow Aviar with the players pack.
    -The Aviar is the only disc a player can putt with.
    -Putting zone will be inside a 75 ft circle around each pin.
    -Players will get 2 shots outside the putting zone.
    -2 rounds of 18 holes, total strokes inside putting zone counted.

    -Prizes will be awarded in each division.
    -Playoffs in the event of ties.
    -Ace pot in effect!

    There are 6 divisions of play
    1) Open
    2) Open women’s
    3) Masters
    4) Advanced
    5) Intermediate
    6) Recreational

    This tournament is limited to 50 players total..... so register early!!!!

    You can pre-register by sending Bill Harpster a note on discgolfscene, http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournam...For_Dough_2012 or you can shoot him an email at radiantfloorsandmore@yahoo.com please include your name and division you will be playing in.

          How many strokes if you throw 1 drive, 1 upshot, and 1 putt in the PZ?

            If your drive lands outside the putting zone and your upshot lands in the PZ then you put your putt in that would 1 shot, anything outside the PZ is a free shot but you only get 2 shots outside the PZ per hole. I hope this helps, looking forward to making people strategize whether they are going to go for it or if they want to lay up then make a run at it and possibly make it or have to single putt.You should come out and try it. We are going to have fun I guaranty it.

              What if you can't get it in the PZ in two shots?

                Then you take a stroke, but it shouldn't be an issue though.

                  If you string a 75-foot (radius) circle on every hole, that will require 8478 feet of string!

                            So, if I go for an ace and miss the ace, but make the putt, I get a stroke. If I whack a tree and land 100 feet away and then make the 100 foot upshot, I do not get a stroke exactly as though I had aced from the tee pad. Sorry, but this does not make sense.

                            Players should just be throwing to the putting zone but not throwing into it so they can have a chance for making the 75-100 foot shot and zero strokes. Doesn't sound like fun.
