I just watched a video of the 1999 Worlds yesterday. Stokely throws some serious bombs!

My apologies. In that case, I completely agree.

This could be beaten at any time. I've witness throws further than this, with no wind. It's no easy feat for a majority of disc golfers, but I'm guessing most or all of the top 20 players in the world could beat that.
