haha thanks for the info. chuck! would love to see some stats on how many of the par 2's produced birdies. I believe hosfield took a boggie on one of those holes on the vid. i have.
the hole i am talking about had a crane cam filming it as it was up hill. great camera work. Acording to houck that particular hole was just a gentle "roll curve" shot for RHBH throwers.

Yep, the film crew headed by Blair Paulsen had a crane for the Final 9. We also had daily video clips shown on the big screens at the Sports Bar located between the two main courses that players could watch during their lunch breaks between rounds. We plan to do that again for Am Worlds in 2014 at the same place.

It was either that hole or the one before it where a fan in the crowd was nailed in the forehead by a throw that didn't "roll curve" enough. The gash required stitches but no lawsuit resulted.

wow that was an awesome find. I met Elaine King this year at a tournament (she lives in NC now I think) and I think she was wearing those same shorts.

I agree we needed more Eckström in that video.

great vid, for all of the reasons mentioned! i wish they had shown more of the lower men's open cards. i'd love to see footage of craig g, mike moser, joe mela, and some of the other east coast guys i've met.
