Dion Arlyn 360 smash

Just watched CCDG's awesome new in the bag vid with Dion Arlyn at Milo McIver and was pretty floored by this shot...

Absolutely parks that island (with no skip off the road) where I believe they put the basket for the Beaver State Fling? Isn't that right? Anybody know how far that is? I wonder if he'll be going for that in the tournament...

When he competed at the Bluegrass Open a few years ago (his first A-tier win), he put his drive on hole 1 at Idlewild pin high and 25' left for an easy deuce putt. The man has an absolute cannon and the accuracy to match. I wouldn't be surprised if he went for it.

That hole is 555' a little bit downhill. I've been spectating at the BSF since 2012 and the only person I've seen come close to doing that is Garrett Gurthie(he flew the island and took a 3p). The hard part about that shot is having to throw it without the aid of an anhyzer since there's very little room to shape the shot. Absolutely ridiculous shot by Dion. With that being said I doubt he goes for it in the tournament.

CCDG has a ton of Milo footage from Worlds, and I never saw anybody go for it.

I wish I had the wing span of an orangutan too.

I have never tried a BH on that hole, usually try to take the anny to Fade FH line, but if I could throw like that why not!? The dude can bomb. And a Force isn't exactly flippy either.

In the video footage from Worlds no one went for it. Not even Simon Lizotte. At most they were driving as close to the end of the fairway as possible to have an over the road putt at it.

Also, he went for it with a Hurricane, then a few shots later he threw the end of the fairway layup with a Force. That's the shot that most big throwers will play.

It seemed like you could go for it, and not really risk being in the road much. 360 drives aren't really competitive round approved, though.
