Note: This story originally appeared on my personal blog Sept. 16. However, being that readership and this readership are quite different, I wanted to bring this post here and share.
OK, OK, that probably wasn’t the best way to describe me at this point, eh?
What I meant to say is that I’m a certified PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) official.
It’s not something I really needed. I don’t plan on being a tournament director, nor do I plan on playing in a National Tour event as a pro anytime soon. I’m thinking my whopping 672 rating probably wouldn’t go too far in those events.
Still, I had thought a couple of things in regard to this…
- It would give me a way to learn the disc golf rules a bit better
- It would give me something to do on a rainy day and make for a good blog post
Over the past few days, I’ve peeked at the PDGA rules book and competition manual. I’ve learned a lot of things I didn’t know about the game. Not all of it makes sense to me, mind you, but I at least know a lot of rules now.
