McCabe and Schwebby are supposed to make a visit to Anchorage, AK this summer so we will find out if they make it to Kincaid Park and Hilltop Ski Area.

I disagree with the bit I highlighted in red. The one time I got to witness Climo throwing a casual round, I got an almost palpable impression of his control over his throwing motion. His tee shots really did look like frozen ropes straight at the baskets, and when he putted, it looked like his joints were running on rails. So yeah, I felt the "wow" factor from watching Climo playing ordinary shots on an ordinary course. It just looked so pure and dialed in, I got the impression it would have been difficult for him to throw a bad shot.

That's more-or-less what I meant.
