High fives

"Nice up" or "nice run" for 3 on a easy 300 foot hole

Seal skins

"Disc Golf Shoes"

Complimenting someone on their nice round and they tell you it should have been x amount of strokes better

Shaking hands on the 18th/final teebox before the round is over.

So you're more of a "bump" kinda player, no high-fives?

I straight up hugged two random dudes after my only ace this year. lol

High fives are always in order. Cheer up!

Nice ups should be reserved for berating short putts. Likewise, nice run should be reserved for berating 30' blow by putts. :)

No comment, never worn 'em.

Do you prefer vibram five fingers or flip flops? :lol:

Guilty of this because disc golf is serious business, though it is annoying when others do it so everyone should just stop and say "thanks."

Never understood shaking prior to finishing, but it seems to have taken hold in "dg culture" why can't we just wait until everyone putts out on the final hole??

You know what's buggin me? Absolutely nothing. The last 2 months of disc golf have been nothing short of amazing. There are so many players I really enjoy playing with so many courses that offer such unique challenges. Can't wait for LOD.

There is definitely something unnerving about it.

Probably need a new thread, What's bugging AO?

run a tournament...or be quiet!

Over the last two years I've heard multiple whiners whining. Show up..play golf..except and enjoy the tournament no matter what level it is. Running a tournament is tough and I personally don't think it's that much fun.

I'm glad you brought this up. I've made a lot of posts in my head regarding this subject. I'm really grateful for all the man hours that have been volunteered by the same group of people year in and year out. It takes a ton of time and is always a thankless job. When it goes well it can be rewarding, but when the bitching starts it really makes you wonder why you put yourself in that position.

Most complaining stems from unrealistic expectations. There are a lot of tournaments that could be a lot bigger and better, but they require a good volunteer base that's willing to follow good leadership and that's an incredibly hard combination to come together in the volunteer world. I agree with AO, put up or shut up. I haven't seen Travis Tramyle spend one hour showing up to a meeting or offer anything productive or useful to the DM disc golf club, yet he feels like he's owed something other than the handful of courses that he continually plays for free.

I agree gentlemen. There are two occasions that a person finds themselves running an event. One is because no one else would do it. The other is they want to. Neither one runs a perfect event and makes everyone happy. Either way, anyone that has run an event for an extended period of time shows a tremendous amount of commitment to the event. They internalize "Constructive" criticism and utilize it because they care about the event and the experience. Examples: if a fellow TD or friend approaches me and says "hey man--its July, you should probably make sure there is water available," I would accept that, feel guilty for not thinking about it, and jump all over it. If some random player says " duh!! its July -- I can't believe you don't have any friggin water out here!!" I be almost as inclined to say F-Off as I would be to do the right thing and take care of it. There is a right way and a wrong way to address it and at the end of the day if you can't do it professionally, get involved or keep it to yourself. Everything good that can be mentioned about one of my events (stay tuned 8) ) is a direct result of what I have learned from other TDs and other events both good and bad.
