learn to land the disc flat and you'll be alright.
Difference being is that your shot is penalized by the actual course and not some fictional line.
But my main argument is that you still have a chance to pull off a great recovery shot to make up for that bad shot. If you go "OB" you lose that chance. Which is the main reason I hate all the OB ropes and what not. Golf should be about trying to recover from bad shots with a great shot. Not who has the most shots over the fictional line. This is the one spot where ball golf will always always have more respect and admiration then disc golf IMO.
Some of the greatest shots you see televised for ball golf are the amazing recovery shots out of some incredibly bad position. You don't see too many shots from a drop zone
