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.
I wouldn't call it avery style but I use a power grip.

My biggest pet peeve is quiteness in the group.

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
Mostly a Flow but added cash and status of tournaments such as A tiers over B because our sponsors offer us better bonus at bigger events.

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?
15 feet is a normal gimme.
25 feet and in should be in everytime.
^^^
I feel past that should be 80% till about 40 feet

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

Thanks dude, wreck shop in 2013
I could switch hit.
but I do notice my left handed swing has more speed and power but my right handed swing is more contact. So I really didnt have a problem sorry I dont have a true answer for that question.

I have 4 that i'm using at this time. I like that they don't have as much glide as the dx P&A so they are great for just putting

OC Love! I came back today hoping you'd give this response. We miss seeing you at the course, JD looks a little lonely some days

Ha, that was obvious.

I do somewhat sympathise with some of the players who blew up there. I'm only average, but I've definitely had a few "AJ moments" on Nevin! Mental game is the biggest challenge for me, I've gotten better, but I did once pull a "rolling rainbow" on 4, where I dumped the contents of my bag, and they all rolled down the slope to the right, like I'd spilled a pack of gummi lifesavers. I started practicing for realz after that point, like 2 years ago, and it turns out the focused practice helps mental game more than actual game.

Congrats on a great win here. I was pulling for the local hippy hero, but was glad to see someone win who didn't think they were playing a different course than the rest of the field.

400 foot tunnel shot, low ceiling, no wind, you are going to throw a driver.

What do you throw? Dead flat, slight annie, hyzer flip? What would the disc be?

Fun read. Thank you and good luck next year. I went through some dark years playing tourney's. Bad money, bad people. It sounds like you are getting it right.
