I did let Max Nichols (current Wrightwood defending champion) know today that I may sick you on him to take it back this next year. (so if you happen to be back around the correct time of year I might look like I know what Im talking about. I also tol him he could have Chilis one night of the Memorial)

What is the best advice you can give to a young disc golf player who wants to commit some serious time and effort into becoming pro?

hey Paul thank you for doing this. great to get to get some advice and see into the mind of the pros. My question is do you change your putting style at all depending on the baskets you are putting on? Of course the newer baskets catch way better but I'm curious what you do when you are playing on the much older courses with baskets with not nearly as many chains and very shallow baskets that just do not catch as well. does it change your approach or the type of putt you throw?

Pretty much just what you are doing now, but with more people who have no idea wft discgolf is. There are about 9000 disc golfers in /r/discgolf, but 2.5 million subscribe to /r/IamA. Lots of famous people have done them, as well as people with strange jobs or hobbies. You basically allow millions of people to ask you anything (or almost anything) you want. check out

http://www.reddit.com/r/IamA http://www.reddit.com/r/IAMAFamousArchive/

or these, in case you are still browsing on your phone
i.reddit.com/r/IamA
i.reddit.com/r/IAMAFamousArchive/


I was actually linked to this thread from /r/discgolf and read through it this evening. I created this account just to ask you to do an AmA on reddit. And also to ask, how do you mark your discs?

And the best path to that on IAmA is to get it on the schedule so there's a better chance for all users to see that it's coming and would draw in more people to ask some questions.

Yea I have to look at that more but it seems like a good idea

I don't plan on it since I live on the east coast now.

I do change my bag up not my throw. My main driver there is a dx aviar and maybe the occasional roc shot. The elevation allows the slower disc to glide a long ways.
