Cool, sounds pretty similar to what Anthon was saying at USDGC this year. Something like "You have to know the baskets are huge and if you're not gonna go for it lay up." He has a pretty aggressive putting style like you. Something I'd like to emulate in the future.

As I'm someone who may never throw a disc 500+ feet, how did you feel the first time you crushed a disc out that far?

I've never really thought about it because I feel like there isn't a limit on how far you can throw. It's kind of like the 100m dash they say you can't run faster but somehow they keep doing it. I guess I would say its almost just normal since I never put a limit on how far I believe I can throw

Paul, I'm really enjoying this thread - thanks for taking the time to respond to the masses, it's great to chat with a player of your stature on this forum.

Have you played any Michigan courses and, if so, did any of them really leave a lasting impression on you?

No problem I hope to stay in touch more throughout the year.

Ive played 2events in MI one was Worlds in '08 those courses were nothing to special and then I have also played DGLO I liked the Monster course. I also made the AM nats course that one was fun.

I love Dela its a lot of controlled shots. When I say controlled I mean you have to hit your line AND have the right distance because that course has some cliffs.
I've never played stafford or a lot of Norcal course.

Paul, how often do you swap discs in and out of your bag? Is it pretty static throughout the season or is it constantly in flux?

I filter through discs quite often. I like when discs fly new and you can predict the flight better. I swap putters often to, I like to "retire" my putters after key wins too.
