FWIW Feldberg has the "pendulum" drive, Gurthie is known for reaching under his arm.

Drew has a smoother, more fluid swing than either of those two however. Also he's 17...I've seen him change and tweak his putting and driving forms just in the time I've known him. So this probably isn't even his final stage! (for example his putt was much different last year)

I wonder if some of the Live Coverage issues weren't brought up based on last year's coverage. Namely, several folks commented in the chat board that the tourney is put on by Discraft and DGP was constantly showing ads for its sponsors, Innova, PDGA, GripEQ.

It's the Mercedes-Benz superdome but they can't stop FOX from showing BMW commercials. I would wager that the answer is more parsimonious than that, but IF that were true then that's a stone-age mentality.

Would you be surprised by stone-age mentality in disc golf?

Those ads would be seen by a few thousand people at the most, I doubt it causes any company a problem.

I suppose my wish will be granted for this year's worlds.

I can make a course be par 72 and make it extremely easy.

I agree that our top players should be playing on hard courses in the bigger events, but just b/c par is over a certain number doesn't mean it's hard.

what I want is GREAT courses for NTs, and there are too many people that think difficult= a good course.

Peterb- basically every pro I know counts Milo McIver(beaver state fling layouts) as one of their top 5 courses and they are only par 60 and 61 iirc. Yet I think of them as pretty tough courses because there are almost no "gimmies" and every shot has to be earned. Also the par 4s are what par 4s are supposed to be like : birdie-able by a good drive and a good upshot...both are needed.

The Milo McIver BSF layouts (East and West) are both Par 60, each with SSA's very close to 60.
