Saw a world champ completely miss the basket from 10' in finals, costing that person a title. Everyone gets the yips, but some get them a lot less than others.

Jump putts are like highway speed limits: Most everyone breaks the law but as long as you're not too blatant about it, you won't get a ticket.

Funny how when someone misreports a hole score, it's too low about 99% of the time. Too high practically never happens. Selective memory indeed.

PDGA online results for Horizons go back about a decade. Lots of rounds in the 30s, and at least one 37, but no 36 (that I could see). Surely someone can find a 36 somewhere?

Someone please let the PDGA know that this event is going on. It's a major, right? Nothing on the front page of the PDGA site so far, and the event is in its second day now.

Thrown correctly, the 360 adds about 10% to a distance throw. It's the throw of choice for distance contests. It is possible to use it on golf course, but not recommended, especially if you haven't...

I agree. Having to make jump putt calls is an unwelcome burden, and most choose to look the other way. It's kind of like being forced to be a first base umpire, making "bang bang" calls for a...
