Yes that is horrible. You should at least be throwing nukes 700 and teebirds 650. If you can't throw your polecat 500 feet then you should just give up in disc golf all together.

On serious note, yes that is very exceptional for a year in.

That would be pretty amazing even after playing for many years.

Noob...video or it didn't,t happen. And I totally agree with aPfaff. Personally I can only get my polecat out to 380 and I feel like a disc golf failure.

Yeah that's exceptional. But where are these discs landing? How's your short game? Can you putt?

It is for real...I can make a video if you dont believe...I have done this many times...not only once...many times...both on course and in the field.
I also did try a turnaround some times and did throw a PD around 500-510 ft =)

they are landing pretty straight...and the teebirds very straigt...im working on my short game and putting...im comfortable putting up til 20 ft..
I had played some tourneys this year...im a little inconsistent still...some rounds I do 980 rating...next can be 930...but it has only been one year..
