You may occationally see me telling him to stop, move or pulling him out of a sght line.
Do people really think that those things don't matter in disc golf? They DO matter, they matter a lot!! I am so glad you are teaching your son the way my dad taught me...I really believe those rules of etiquette are a good portion of what makes the game what it is...or I guess what it should be in my opinion, anyway...I don't have the money to get out on a ball golf course, shoot, I barely have the money for new plastic, and certainly not for the fees to play in tournaments, but I love disc golf for the peace and decorum (within reason) that I get to experience on the course.
I will not play with people who do not follow proper ettiquette, and because I can be a bit of a loud mouth and some people might even say pushy, I don't mind speaking up about it (thank goodness I pretty much only play with people who are already my friends, right?). It's important to respect those you are playing with by giving them their space to focus and throw.
Keep up your good work, Ms. Thing, it would be a pleasure to run into your son on a disc golf course somewhere...and you, too!
