My wife saw David Feldberg smoking in a DG video at the HoF and said that is why DG will never be mainstream. What do you think about that? Does Disc Golf have to be more straight laced, athletic or ??? to go mainstream?
i'd like it mainstream, look at other sports like baseball,football ect parents sign their kids up so the can try to become professional and make millions. that is what disc golf is missing right now.

smoking will never fly with tv, you dont see other sports with smokers in the middle of their rounds or games. golf has smokers but they dont put them on tv anymore.

550 would be safe to say maybe 600 if there is nothing i the way

i didnt see any players smoking at The Farmers Insurance Open this year.

no i dont like that idea if people want to run up then do it they know the consequences.

each disc has a different flight you need to learn to utilize that disc for it's maximum disctance.

I've done this and it is a good drill. Really forces you find leverage.

Paul, thanks again for playing (and winning) the Inaugural Little River Open. Your visit here is now even more special. The Little River DGC is more than likely completely destroyed by yesterday's tornado. The 7-11 on the northeast corner of the park is no longer there. The neighborhoods just south and southwest of the course are leveled. I just thought you might like to know that you are one of the privileged to get to play a very young but promising course that is now, more than likely, extinct. While the course being destroyed is not even a blip on the radar compared to the fatalities and property destroyed, the course will be missed by those of us that loved to play it.
