The thing is, and I'm sure Paul would agree, is that for 6-8 of the 18 holes, a Rec player like myself could hang with him. It's the other 10-12 holes that he'd kick my butt and make up the difference.
A "Rec" equivalent golfer probably couldn't hang with Tiger for ANY holes.
essentially, yes. All the practice in the world would not give 30 year old me a shot in the NFL. However, a few good years dedicated to disc golf, and I can be a 1000+ pro. If anything, that is why I would perceive the 'gap' as smaller. That's not to say a round against McBeth would not go very, very poorly for me right now. I'm just saying the feasibility is there. Unlike giving me three years to practice for a one on one with Kevin Durant. Which would have no shot at ending well...unless I went Nancy Kerrigan on him and hired someone to kneecap him on the way to the court...
