    I'm curious about what the courtesy violations were and why you decided not to call them. For another thread, perhaps....

    Now, since someone asked... i'll answer, I won't mention who it was cuz you can see for yourself on the tournament results and I invite both Kabza's to add to anything I missed cuz of course I miss things; especially with the other people on the card chanting "miss, miss, miss" and think I can't hear that heh...

    ok... From what I know and saw from the 3rd round alone.
    1. Very first hole - hole 11, guy picked up his upshot about 8 feet away and didn't putt out. *I didn't see him do this because I was putting down my bag over to the side near 12 tee and I was the closest to the pin so I was going last after everyone putt out, but I did see him make the upshot and know where the disc was, it was not a "automatic" putt, and when i looked back up he was already walking towards tee 12* (Kabza informed me after everything was over for the tournament that he had indeed gave him a verbal warning, which I didn't know and wasn't even sure that he did in deed did not putt out)
    so that was the worse of them all, not even finishing a hole.
    2. Not using a marker for almost all of his shots. I had to give him one of my mini's with like 4 holes left when I finally realized he wasn't using a mini at all.
    *I later learned that another guy had given him a mini earlier which the miniless guy lost on the very next hole*
    3. Anything under 20 feet, he just picked up the disc and putt out with nothing marking his lie.
    4. On the very last hole, the famous hole 10 that tied everything up, the guy was supposed to tee off 3rd, but he just got up there and hurled his tee shot up the hill first. This confused me and before I could confirm that he had tee'd off way out of order, the whole group had tee'd off except me, but at the time, I was thinking I had a 1 stroke lead and was going to par this for the win heh... but the park job during sudden death made the whole tournament way better so...

    In a way we should have been more anal with him, but at the same time, the guy's friends should have taught him the basics instead of us educating him on every little couresty of the game etc... It's easy to talk smack should have, would have, could have, but when the time comes, not alot of people speak up at the right time. Now if I would have known that Kabza did give him a verbal warning on the first hole and that he had been given a mini in the 2nd round and lost it, then I probably would have spoken up immediately... oh well...

    I just got my order from GottaGoGottaThrow this morning of 20 Halloween mini's to be given out at the Hope Open.

    As for violations.........I have never HAD to say anything to a veteran tournament player as those that I have played with are pretty familiar with the rules. There HAVE been times that I have played with newer tournament players and when I have noticed that they have a bad practice of doing something that they CAN be called for, and knowing that if they keep doing it they WILL get called for it, I will, as we're walking to our next hole, politely tell them that they are doing something wrong. I'll then add that I am not trying to be a jerk but don't want to see them have to take a stroke when they can avoid it. NOW, if they paid no attention and kept doing it, I WOULD warn them, officially. I don't have a problem with that at all. If it is a player that is more experienced and one that does know the rules and ignores them, I don't have a problem being the one to warn them either. The good news is that I play Advanced Masters and you don't see BS infractions in tournament play. Or I haven't seen it!

    Any online retailer should have them.

    Usually you can find them from between $1-$5.

    This is only for PDGA tournament play, of course.
