I'm wondering what a nic fit will do during a high-pressure putting situation.

Fallout from this should be nice to read.

The forum is full of wonderful insight, like this gem:

Some guy on the PDGA discussion board wrote:
CAN YOU SERIOUSLY FIND SOMETHING BETTER TO WHINE ABOUT ????

What a hyper-sensative society we have become. I am going to go burn a square and laugh about this thread.....


THREAD PROPOSAL : SHOULD PLAYERS THAT WEAR OLD SPICE BE BANNED FROM SANCTIONED PLAY... I DONT LIKE THE SMELL OF OLD SPICE, SO IT SHOULD BE BANNED ....

Some great advice for those that might find this whole thing too much to handle:

Use a patch during rounds or chew some nicorette. Those K2'ers can eat some brownies. I don't mind 2nd hand brownie smell.

...for the love of the game, dry conditions and the need for its players to puff away on butts throughout a round, the PDGA has banned California from disc golfing.

Get on their case, Rolly! I don't see how they could ban them, considering nicotine chewing gum and "the patch" are being considered viable alternatives. This doesn't look to be a d!ck pound issue with regard to banned substances; it's all in the delivery method from what I can tell.

Perhaps they're worried that the last remaining truckload of photographic film is in danger of igniting.

Can you imagine the NBA or the NHL waiting until 2011 to decide to ban smoking by players during a game?
