Awesome. I hope every player that plays competitively reads these. I love the pictures.

Which disc(s) will count as "holed out" (if the player retrieves them in time)?


What a great friend!

seems silly to me that the yellow is out and the one hanging outside the basket (red) is in....more of the hokey issues of our sport

I agree it is silly.
I think the reason they write the rule as such is because it is the closest to
being on top of the basket and avoids any conflicts of being somewhere between on top and hanging off.

Another reason to love the Innova yellow band.

Wait a second here. The yellow disc is not in the basket, but it is touching the chains. Does this not mean that one could argue that the chains are playing a role in suspending the disc in or over the target. Therefore in!

Only reason it is touching the chains is because of another disc inside the chains pushing them outwards. In proper etiquette disc golf that disc would not be there.

PDGA Rules wrote:
B. Disc Entrapment Devices: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must come to rest supported by the chains or within one of the entrapment sections. This includes a disc wedged into or hanging from the lower entrapment section but excludes a disc resting on top of, or hanging outside of, the upper entrapment section. The disc must also remain within the chains or entrapment sections until removed.

You know, I used to loathe the yellow band. It's big, obnoxious, and makes a terrible sound when you thunk it. Then I hit one hard while at the shire.

Completely predictably, it bounced sort of like a slap shot off a goal post; not in, but right back into play where you would expect it to go. There was no crazy air bounce off the top of the basket or fancy random twirly action resulting in a completely unexpected roller. It was just a clean deflection that ended in an expected landing. Then I realized, "hey, that band did what it should. Maybe it isn't so bad after all."
