804.03 Interference - Official Rules and Regulations of Disc Golf
- A thrown disc that strikes a person or animal is played where it first comes to rest.
- A thrown disc that is intentionally deflected or was caught and moved shall be given an approximate position at the point of contact.
- A thrown disc at rest that has been moved shall be replaced to its approximate position (see 802.02.E). A marker disc at rest that has been moved shall be replaced to mark the approximate lie (see 802.03.F).
A player who intentionally interferes with another player's disc in any of the following ways shall receive two penalty throws:
- Altering the course of a thrown disc (other than to prevent injury); or,
- Moving a thrown disc or mini marker disc (other than in the process of identification, retrieval, or marking); or,
- Obscuring a thrown disc or mini marker disc.
- A player whose thrown disc was intentionally interfered with by another player as described in 804.03.D.1 has the option of a re-throw.
- Players shall not stand or leave their equipment where interference with a disc in play may occur. A player may require other players to move themselves or their equipment if either could interfere with the throw. Refusal to do so is a courtesy violation.
- Altering the course of a thrown disc with the consent of the thrower in order to prevent the disc from becoming lost is not punishable interference. Any disc whose course is altered for that reason is considered to be a lost disc.
