I might take Disc Golf serious, but I feel my time is really precious and I just want to do well while out there. I think these avoidable distractions are a nuisance. Headphones for you, eye rolls for me!
Amen brother. There are very few parts of my life that music is not a part of, or couldn't be a part of if I wanted. I listen to music all day long. For me disc golf is not only about the game but about experiencing the natural world. I botanize, watch birds, butterflies, dragonflies, etc. when I play, even during tournament rounds. It's a big part of what I enjoy about the pastime.
Amplified music goes right on the list with loose pitbulls, litterers, casual groups of eight, and shirtless aggro douchebags as things I dislike encountering on the course.
But that's just one man's opinion, and I've never asked anyone to turn their tunes off.
