I agree. It looks like a collectable.

If you listen, you can hear him say "That's got a chance" then the crowd erupts.
Thats cool! I wonder why they didn't show more of his ace? I'll have to go back and watch it again.

That's is a "no no" to me as well. When there is a playground within reach of a fairway, basket, etc... thats an instant negative. I would hate to see junior take a wraith to the head.

This isn't so much the national news, but it was a story linked to in a PDGA weekly newsletter that referred to some popular threads on here as well as conveying a very strong positive advertisement for the website.

The Indianapolis Star wrote a great article about disc golf if anyone would like to read it.

Thanks for posting the article!

I did think this was lol worthy:

Most holes range from 100 to 500 feet from tee to basket, and expert players can hurl a driver disc more than 200 feet.

I'm not sure I've ever 'hurled' a disc in my life... maybe that's what is keeping me from being an expert player, the 200 foot hurl.

"expert players can hurl a driver disc more than 200 feet."

Crap! I must be SUPER pro if my weak hand can throw that far!

I think he probably meant 200 yds (ie 600 ft which would be more accurate)
