I consider Cam a friend, but I must say any true and good interview with him has to include the Hambrick incident, his unique suspension from it and his disapearance from the game for a while.

Was the disapearance b/c of the incident? Or was it the last straw in a decision that he had already made? Rumors were it was to pursue professional ball golf. What happened in that time away?

I am forwarding this question to Cam and let him decide on whether he wants to talk about it or not.

What's Cam throwing these days since Discraft seems very unwilling to update his profile.

If he is willing to talk about that period, I'm wondering about the comparison of his situation to the Player's Cup incident a few years later.

In Cam's case, there was a lot of comment by the PDGA on the message board and the whole scenario played out very publicly. That lead to a chorus of Internet experts who seemed emboldened to attack his character based on all the info flowing around.

A few years later there was an incident at the Player's Cup which resulted in the Red Hawk course being pulled and a Major being cancelled. That situation was handled quietly with no formal announcement of any punishment. With no public Internet vetting of that situation, it never reached the torch and pitchfork furor that Cam's situation did.

It would be interesting to know if his case had not been openly debated by PDGA officials on the message board and he did not have to endured the Internet character assassination that he did, does he think he might have stayed in the game? Or did he not pay much attention to what people had to say on the Internet and would have left anyway.

Being on the PDGA discipline committee, I know about the players cup incident. The situation was reviewed by us on the committee and there wasn't enough information available / "proof" to place blame on a particular incident or what not. The incident reported was simply one of many reasons from the resort to pull the course.

I'm not going to speak about the incident or it involved because part of the role of our committee is not putting those things out there publicly (so don't ask or PM - lol), but it did not happen on the course or doing the round or doing the awards or players meeting, etc, which is a major difference between the Hambrick incident with Cam.
