TD Question/Competitive Advantage

Postby D-Wiz » Wed Jun 05, 2013 4:07 pm

I've been too lazy to research this in the Rules/Competition Manual, so here is the question:

Is using a wrist brace legal or would such a device be ruled a competitive advantage? The player in question has tendonitis and only uses the brace when putting/not when throwing shots. So, the player puts the brace on when putting (that motion hurts) but doesn't need the brace when throwing.

Is this allowed during PDGA sanctioned play? It might be a good time for some pictures Randy...

It's fine.

801.03 Artificial Devices
A. During a round, a player shall not use any
artificial device that may directly assist in
making a throw, except those devices that
reduce or control abrasion to the skin (such as
gloves, tape, bandages, or gauze) and medical
items (such as knee or ankle braces).

If a player gets a CTP on a hole,moves the CTP flag to behind his mini, then putts from the FLAG after having removed his mini, is that a rules violation? Does the putt have to be from behind a disc or mini, or does the CTP flag count as a marker?
Fart, it's never not funny!

Disc or mini marker only. I see people do this often, but technically it's wrong. Once you place the mini, you can't move it until you throw. I don't see anything wrong with placing the CTP flag before you throw though.
