Because it seems to be confusing when looking at the scores...

PRO Winner
Wysocki shoots -32 with a total score of 154

AM Winner:
Hutton shoots -6 with a total score of 156

What's the deal?

The AM portion of the GLO was played at Hudson Mills (Monster and Original I believe) and the Pro event was at Kensington on the Toboggan course

That's the only explanation for that craziness besides a typo. It's not unusual for a pro to win with a 40 under for the tournament and the amateur with a 4 under. They really are just that much better.

But as far as the total stroke difference you mentioned, I would guess that the pros and ams played different courses and/or different tee/pin placements. The pros are pretty much always going to play in the toughest configuration that a course has, but if there's an alternate layout it wouldn't be unusual for different divisions to play it that way.

Why do I get more distance with a roc than a beast? Is there something I am doing wrong?

Also I tend to not be able to shoot straight, I end up getting a nasty curve (hyzer?) to the left.

Newbie here too but the Beast is probably to much of a disc for you. You need a lot more arm speed for it than the Roc. I bought all high speed discs when I started a few months ago and after reading all 380 pages of this thread I took all discs with speed over 9 out of my bag and started throwing longer and straighter almost immediately!!!!! I can now throw some 10's with good results. I am sure others will chime in and tell you about form and other threads but start by taking ALL high speed discs out of your bag for now. You'll be glad you did

This is true, you need to tone down disc speed in the beginning. If you can't throw the disc straight for a solid 220'-250', you need less speed. Some discs are meant more for hyzer, and annhyzer shots, but for a newer player a good rule of thumb is to find a disc you can throw with as little hyzer as possible. (Less Fade) then incorporate faster discs for specific throws. Find your throw, then find a good disc that matches it.

Good Discs for Gapers (Newbs)

Almost any mid-range will do you pretty solid. Don't worry about what kind of San Marino Roc you have, that won't mean crap for now. There mostly for geeky collectors (like myself) any way. Avoid the Roc3's and such these are tough mids to throw.
Leopards
Valkyries
Any DX plastic for about 6 months
DisCraft XL's

For flickers, find a driver with a speed around 9 or 10 and you'll be set for a while

These are the EXACT discs I went to. I found a DX Leopard and Valk on the course and started throwing them. After about a month my arm speed has increased so now they are a little too flippy for me, but they helped me a ton. I still use them, but start them on a Hyzer and they flatten out and finish very nice and predictable. Good Luck

I have also increased my distance from barely 200' to max of about 350'
