What is your advice for playing on a Mens open card with 3 players your unfamiliar with and are not very friendly? How do you keep your game going well when your pretty much stuck talking to yourself? Does it help or hurt your game to play along with people your friends with in a tournament?

I believe it should make you focus more, but it also allows you to get in your own head. When playing with others like that it requires you to be mentally strong. I think it might hurt to play with friends because you tend to slack a bit more.

I hate to say it but I'm on his page. Never seen an episode or movie. Never appealed to me.

Alright, Final hole your tied for the lead. Your throw lands 20ft from the basket, the person your tied with lands 30ft away. He cans the putt. Whats going on in your head? How do you deal with knowing you HAVE to make the shot?

I have been having trouble lately with bouncing "tweener" mid/fairway discs in and out of my bag. I notice that you (at least at the time of your "in the bag" with Legacy) and a lot of other pros carry plenty of "tweener" distance/fairway drivers such as a Firebird or Teebird, but often don't carry anything in the "tweener" mid/fairway lineup... maybe something like a whippet or a gazelle.
For distance shots, I tend to always throw something slower if I am in doubt but I often find myself second guessing whether to power down a fairway or to crank on a mid (especailly on a relatively open shot). Believe it or not, wide open holes tend to force mistakes out of me much more than wooded holes due to my difficultly choosing and visualizing a particular line.
Is there any advice that you can offer that may help with the decision making process or is it simply just my confidence in shot selection that I will have to work on?

When in a open field and your in doubt just get a stable disc like a firebird or whatever you perfer and throw a hyzer. With a hyzer all you have to predict is the distance. A hyzer for rhbh will always go left so now its just judging the distance. My opinion

Thanks Paul. Do you ever find yourself second guessing disc selection if/when you are looking at an awkward distance or will the eye for that just come naturally in time? Is it generally best to throw the slowest disc that will get to your target in an open hole scenario in your opinion?
