Yep, but only if they caught on camera. Which is why most of em chain smoke between holes. They also drink, and a few have admitted to "partaking" in porta potties whenever they get the chance.The Donator wrote:MDR_3000 wrote:blkwizardsonny wrote:john daly smokes on tv b 4medicinal funk wrote:johnemus wrote:My opinion is different than most of yours. I actually like the rule. Now let me preface this by saying, I don't mind playing with smokers or anything like that.
However, IF disc golf is trying to become a larger, much more popular sport, than its got to appear to be more professional to outsiders. You don't see pro golfers smoking/drinking during tournaments or other professional athletes doing this while they are competing. The better disc golf can look in the public eye, the better the likelihood of it growing, which is what I hope to see it do. Just my opinion
guys smoke during PGA events too, you just don't see it on television
I'm pretty sure they get fined for it too

Actually, the PGA is just now addressing this issue very similarly to the PDGA. There's been a lot of talk about the *other* smoking, especially on the Nationwide Tour.
To me it boils down to this, perception is reality. You guys did see they want to have designated smoking areas that are simply out of view to the public? It just looks bad. Do you guys remember Angel Cabrera just blowing up heaters on the back nine of the US Open? He was literally knocking down a cigarette with every breath! I thought it was funny, but it did look horrible to see on TV.
