Disc golf analytics

Post by TheGroover » Mon Sep 17, 2012 12:05 pm

Hello
I've done the score analysis for QP Open. The data does not include the final rounds - that's a little more work than i have time for right now... Otherwise, interact and enjoy (click to go to the interactive version)

Thanks for doing the analysis of time to throw, and good to see that the 30 second rule was generally well adhered to. I did a fair bit of stop-watch timing when I officiated at EC2012 and it's not always clear-cut as to when the clock should start if there are distractions. On the first hole of the final I heard Andy start the clock as I was at my disc, but I waited a few seconds until another player had cleared the green and finished placing the disc back in their bag. When it comes to speed of play we all need to be aware that it's not just our shot-taking time that matters. We need to make sure that when other players are ready to play, we are silent and either out of sight or motionless.

Hi Del
I totally agree - i was well aware that some of my timings started only for there to be an interruption elsewhere. my conclusion is that it is very difficult to be exact. I would only ever call an infringement of this rule after repeated, obvious violations. I would afford people with obstructions or in the rough much more time than 30 seconds. One because it only seems fair and two because I kind of hope I'd be given the same leeway in return.

the point of the rule isn't to catch people out, it's to prevent delaying the game, imho.

Exactly. Spirit of the game, surely? We're not expected to follow each other around with stopwatches, waiting to pounce on a 1 second over-run! Imagine a situation where a player routinely took 10 seconds over each shot but then had a really tough lie and took 35 seconds negotiating it and got a warning from some nitpicker with a stopwatch. Ridiculous! I guess a legitimate protest would then be to deliberately wait 29 seconds before every shot, no matter how easy, just to waste people's time. And that is also obviously silly. So it's all about the spirit, as it always should be :D
