Yes it would be more competition which would be great and more players would work harder... I just think the level would be pretty close to the same just more consitent play.

me too! when I post it on a forum.

Just cuz you can hit a baseball doesnt make you pro.... Driving 450+ feet doesn't make you pro. Making a wide open 3 pointer doesn't make you pro. I may have more fun traveling playing disc golf then wearing a jersey everyday and being told what to do by a coach. Has that thought ever crossed your mind? Not everyone needs milliins to be happy in life.

There's a 13 year old baseball phenom somewhere out there that's going to pick up a disc one day. Now multiply that by 10, 30, 100...

The Paul Mcbeth's of the disc golf world will have their work cut out for them.

C'mon now. Not only are we getting off topic, but this is turning into a brag fest, and a rather ridiculous one at that.

I have to say that I agree with the original Big Sky post. It's either a smaller gap, or I'm above average (and I'm NOT claiming that!). I'm pretty good at throwing a football, and among people I know and play with, I'm easily the most accurate. I've also been on field watching a pro quarterback go through a few throws, and I can't even begin to fathom how much better he was (and I'm talking about SECOND STRING!). I do think I could at least hang with a 1000+ rated pro. I'm saying...+2 to +5 strokes in 18. I've watched a lot of high level disc golf, and I really don't see the huge talent gap.

(MY OPINION!)

it did cross my mind, but it doesn't matter what I think because I'm nobody special here. but I' not comin on here sayin I van beat professionals. and when you post some things on here that can seem a tad bit arrogant or might be totally speculative because it would never happen inreal life, I would expect someone with a little common sense to say something.

Why you talking crap about catchers? I was a catcher throughout HS (and was a lefty).....but DG was way more important to me at that point.

Unassisted triple at 8 years old too!...shortstop

WTF is the softball leagues? I am giving up DG for BG and softball

I agree! More incentives are the big key.....If there was 1 million to be made playing disc a lot more players would put in the time needed to become the best they could be.
