It wasn't its own doc - it was buried inside something else. I thought it might have been the competition manual, but I don't see it there.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about and know where to find this information?
The problem with that is everybody seems to have a different idea of how far X feet really is. How many people have you played with that will say they drive 350 feet but when you play with them they can never make it all the way to a 320 foot hole. And how many players would get it right if they had to show how far the circle is from the basket? Not many. You would have to test a player with marked distance to get any consistancy, and then they could bag into a lower division by not throwing at their full potential.
Just ask what their average is at the course they usually play. so for you Scott, Orchard would be your benchmark course.
