Agreed.

hahaha, I saw that and was like, "This is no Austin Pfaff."

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

"Expanded Tour Coverage" = blah.

Couldn't care less about their coverage of these events. In fact, as a quarterly magazine, I wish they'd just leave it out almost entirely.

But then they'd have little else to do, and the magazine would feel more like a pamphlet.

I wish I had the option to save a couple bucks and opt out of the magazine when I renew my membership.

Flying Disc Magazine would have been good. Too bad the PDGA allowed for an opt-out option that year, essentially killing the magazine.

As for the magazine now, it's about as good as it has ever been. Pretty much the same for the last 15+ years. I miss the box scores, so you could see your name in print if you did well.

Anymore, the magazine serves little purpose other than sitting on top of the toilet.

I agree with the sentiment that it seemed like one big ad pamphlet.

I think a better idea would be to get a few different pro's to comment on how they would throw a particular hole that they have all played. Forehand vs. backhand, overstable vs. understable, mid vs. putter vs. driver. I think that would help my game a lot more than finding out which discs they have in their bag.
