I expressed my extreme discomfort with the concepts I understand and ask him to explain his rules... both of them.
1. Best shot "but you'll be required to take each partners drives"
How do you use both players drives in best shot?
Does only one person drive on each hole? Is this alternated?
OR do you each get a limited number of drives each partner can use?
Would this mean you are stuck with one partner's drive on last hole you play?
Assuming the latter, wouldn't your ending hole greatly affect the outcome if you are limited to one drive on the last hole?
I just don't understand the concept or how it works, please explain.
2. No overhand off the teepad rule in effect on Saturday
Why was the overhand decision made in the first place?
Does it help the tourney as a whole?
Does it help the game?
Is it just a 'joke?'
I am confused about the entire intent of the statement.
I am truly uncomfortable with the 2nd concept presented, maybe a different perspective will adjust my view.
Maybe it was just a joke that went way over my literal interpretation.
These questions aren't meant to come across as criticism, just inquiry.
Thank you...and I'm sorry.
I'm sure Jeremy will respond to your questions... But in the meantime, I understood the first to mean that we will play best shot but you have to use 9 drives from each player each round. You pick the best on each hole as long as you take 9 from each player. It's a pretty typical restriction in both ball golf and disc golf.
The second, I'm guessing has to do with the fact we are playing North Star on Saturday which is known as an easy course if you have a halfway decent overhand shot. My feeling is he was being sarcastic to emphasize it's a cheater throw on that course.
Again, I'm sorry I called you out. That wasn't polite of me. I just really want our club to get along or at least be civil in how we interact, especially on a public forum.
