TOSS 2019 follows the PDGA “Official Rules of Disc Golf” ( https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-rules-disc-golf ) except:
replace 802.06 B with:
B.Alternatively, the player may mark the lie by flipping the thrown disc 180 degrees forward along the line connecting the front edge of the disc to the target in play; or, by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface, touching the front of the thrown disc on the line of play. A mini marker disc is a small disc, not used in play, that complies with PDGA Technical Standards for mini marker discs.
Replace 802.06 C with:
C.When the thrown disc is not on the in-bounds playing surface, or when the lie is to be moved by rule, the player marks the lie by placing a mini marker disc in accordance with the applicable rule, or by placing a full size disc as though it were a mini marker disc in accordance with the applicable rule.
Replace 813.01 F with:
F.All discs used in play, except mini marker discs, should be uniquely marked. A player receives criticism for the throw of an unmarked disc. A player receives ridicule for the loss of an unmarked disc.
TOSS 2019 also follows the Competition Manual Section 3 except:
Replace 3.01 C with:
The use of speakers to broadcast music/sound is strongly discouraged and forbidden unless explicitly agreed to by all members of your card. The use of headphones, restricting the audibility of music/sound to yourself, is allowed. A request by any competitor or official to stop broadcast of music/sound must result in the termination of broadcast. Failure to do so is a courtesy violation.
Replace 3.01 D with:
Animals are allowed only when explicitly agreed upon by all members of your card, AND where not restricted by policy/law/bylaw/regulations governing the use of the land upon which the event is occurring. Service animals are welcome at all times. It is strongly discouraged that animals accompany competing disc golfers.
