Never. The last time the DSM Challenge was an NT a few pros who didn't do well blasted the courses for being pitch and putt. It really erked the guys who took a full week off of work to get the courses ready.

when your putting do you pick a link or spot on the pole? How high over the rim are you aiming?
Also, do you have a favorite brand/model of basket?

Paulie,

Thanks for taking the time to answer questions.
Do you use the Avery style "power" grip for sidearms? Or the conventional two fingers stacked?

What is your biggest pet peeve during a big tourney?

Good luck this year.

Lol, I didn't hear anyone say they were pitch and putts. That's hilarious... Ewing/big creek/walnut ridge/Pickard are hardly short on distance or difficulty... I did hear comments that certain courses needed trimmed up more, or trimmed differently. But that's subjective, and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Paul, what do you factor in when you're deciding what tournaments to play? A tier/NT event/added cash/brand new car? Or is it just scheduling

What distance do you consider a "gimme" for yourself?
Another way of saying it, At what distance do you fell 110%, it's going in?

Next, how far out do you feel (for yourself) that you must make every putt?
Another way of saying it, Do you have a distance that you feel that you must be 100% accurate?

Climo has said that he feels he needs to be 100% from 25' and everything outside that is a gift.
What is your distance if you were to say the above sentence?

Paul, its awesome that you're a former baseball player. I'm a life long baseball player myself, but hung it up during college (not because of my budding DG career but because I wanted to wakeboard more haha).

I was a lefty thrower/batter and have always thrown a disc RHBH, from grade school all the way up. I think its because a RHBH is exactly the same as a left handed baseball swing. But I forehand with my left hand. Essentially I only ever get a right to left fade haha.

Have you ever experienced that or known other former baseball guys who deal with that?

Thanks dude, wreck shop in 2013

This was before you started playing. 2007 I believe.

I aim at the pole about a inch or 2 above the center.
My favorite basket is the innova discatcher but my favorite basket to practice on is a bullseye basket
