Try following Geoff Bennett around the course on tournament day. That will make you want to gouge out your eye balls and cut off your hands so you can't play anymore.

42 second mark....

I think just the thought of grip locking one into the parking lot would cause me to have a bad drive and actually do it lol.
The Winthrop Gold layout is quasi-temp set up. I've not gone to Lakefront for a while, and I've heard that the gold layout is now more or less playable year round, but historically, that hole only exists during the USDGC.

And you're talking about "888," it's kind of a famous hole. Or, infamous.

Haven't developed any strange twitches that I know of yet.... but then I've only been playing 4 months.

Come to think of it I have emulated Hammock's dance routine on a few occasions... they always involved an Orb Weavers web though.

Seriously, Hammock's credentials speak for themselves.

Reminds me of a girl my daughter played basket ball with. She has this little ritual she would go threw before every shot when she went to the free throw line. I dubbed it 'Abby's Chicken Dance'... she could could shoot the lights out.

I've watched Geoff Bennett videos and Brad Hammock videos.
I'm with SpikeHyzer on this one.

Also, props to Brad on that USDGC video. He was very supportive and encouraging to everyone on the card.

So? It took him 20 secs----faster than 90% of you pokey lil' puppies. Meanwhile, it was entertaining to watch---compared to you Sergio Garcia-I'm-going-to-wiggle-for-a-while-here types.

This is a man who knows how to use his full 30 seconds.

^^^Talking 'bout the Hammock video on post #76.

Bennett, meanwhile, is the Hypnotoad of disc golf.

WOW!!! That was painful. I actually found myself looking at the ads, etc. on the page to avoid actually having to wait through the process. And the worst part is, the putt really wasn't even close to going in. If it had gone in, that would have at least made me feel a little better about it. And I'm not passing judgement on his skills. That really is just painful to watch.

That was hilarious, there is no way I could keep from laughing if I saw that in person. It looked like he thought his disc was a shakeweight.
