The question was how do you mark it if leaning up against the tree ........ in that scenario its marked immediately behind the obstacle (tree) on the line of play.

(this all stems from the point that the disc must be flat on the playing surface, if not it must be marked with a mini)


I took it to mean the disc was on the front side ( basket side ) of the tree. if you mark it and there is no room for you foot.... you then take a line thru the tree and mark it on the back side, and then you obviously would be throwing around the tree in that case (even though you landed infront of the tree).

I would re- read the question again.

Whether its leaning on the front or back side, the rule doesn't care, If a large solid obstacle prevents a player from taking a legal stance within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc, the player shall take his or her stance immediately behind that obstacle on the line of play ....... which would be behind the tree.

The rule doesn't care if your legal lie is tougher or more difficult than where your disc landed. The only thing it cares about is that you are no closer to the hole in relation to where your'e disc came to rest while taking a legal stance. Sometimes you get hosed; however if you were to take it in front of the tree with enough room to throw from, more times than not in this scenario, you would be closer to the hole than your original lie ...... which is not legal.

My friend's disc was in the river leaned up against a rock. About 1/4 of the disc is underwater, with the other half on leaning on the rock. Is that OB? And, if it isn't, where would the relief be taken it?

Was the rock surrounded by water? or was it part of the bank? If its surrounded its OB, and you play it where it last went OB. Unless there is a drop zone or the TD tells you to play it differently.

Where was the other 1/4 of the disc?
I'm sorry that the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours.

So thats why it smells like carmel :? And some of these questions on rules should be "disc golf rules 101" Part of me thinks the rules tests to play NTs, ect, should be forced upon all players at some point :lol:

803.03 Marking the Lie
C. If the thrown disc comes to rest in-bounds but within one meter of an out-of-bounds line, the lie may be relocated to any point on a one-meter line that extends perpendicularly from the nearest point on the out-of-bounds line, and passes through the center of the thrown disc. This holds true even if the direction takes the lie closer to the hole.
