She is pretty much what I expected... reminds me of the neighbor at the lake who thought we stole their boat motor and put it on ours right next door... The reporter should have asked if it was her first time at the park'

I like the old school throwers that just want the camera to be out of their face so they can puff.

instead of getting hit like a hammer as the video says, i was hoping it woulda said she was struck with a katana or one of those play on words news reporters love chiming in.

on a serious note wow thats unfortunate for her. losing eye sight would be awful. also the chucker must feel pretty terrible too.

If one had no knowledge of disc golf, and they watched that video, they would reasonally conclude that the woman was hit by a putter thrown at a target less than 50 feet away. They could also reasonably conclude that, 'even a shot to the face wouldn't hurt *that* bad.'
Interesting that the TV station video only showed people putting. That video did nothing to help the woman's case.

I feel for the lady. I didn't see the shot, dunno if the thrower was completely irressponsible, or if it was a blind shot and neither part was aware of the other, don't know the park, the course, or whatever, but seems like all she wanted to do was take a walk in the park. One thing to get hit, but chances of losing sight in one eye seems pretty unlikely, probably about the same chance of winning the lotto.

While I think responsibility goes three ways (players, parks, and pedestrians), I place more of the responsibility with players us , because:
We are aware there are other park patrons, and we pose far more of a threat to them than they do to us. We know how hard we throw and what kind if impact discs can have when they hit something. They aren't necessarily aware of us, and may not realize what kind of threat discs pose even if they are aware.

Don't tell me no one has a sweet Auntie or Grandma that likes to go for walks in the park, and hasn't have a blessed clue there are people flinging champ plastic around the park at 60+MPH. How'd you like it if at highway speeds. How would you feel if your Aunt/Grandma ended up marking some dude's lie?

Agreed. It should have also shown some players teeing off, to give people an idea of the power behind some throws.

I liked the guy putting from 3' out. Nice hip displacement....solid pull through...all the power you could ever want on a putt from under ten feet out.
