It's not double jeopardy. It's an association that you chose to join and agreed to follow its statutes.
It's likely more members would be suspended if the PDGA did more following and investigation of its members' behaviour.
Comes with the territory (on both sides.)
Well said sir. As it is, people often forget that being a part of a club or an association is PRIVILEGE and not a RIGHT. Much like having a drivers license. Sad thing is I bet Jeff is a really nice guy. I am willing to bet that disc golf is the one thing that takes his mind off the impending doom that he is facing on these charges.
