This is exactly why I advocate for the BuzzzSS, Buzzz, Wasp, Hornet series. They all feel almost the same in the hand, and you only have to learn one and you know them all. All different lines. ...

This sounds like a fun idea for a week off work, get to play some great courses when they're in the best possible shape. I think I'd play a course before watching MPO on it. Instead of ruining my...

Each round you play in a PDGA tourney (and recently, sanctioned leagues) is compared to the score of the other players on the course that round, and their ratings. Then you get a rating for each...

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet in this thread is fatigue/soreness.

A big part of it is the landing area. Depending on how the hole is laid out, you might need a different finish to the flight.

A hyzer (or a flat shot with overstable disc) will fade off and...

Has there ever been a Euro event with so many Euro and US players matched so evenly in the top of the standings?

After round 2:

Top 3: 2 Euro, 1 US
Top 6: 3, 3
Top 12: 6, 6
Top 20: 10, 10

There are no such holes at Camden II. You must be thinking of another course.
