Big throws are fun to watch.

Played at casual tournament on Saturday at Paco Sanchez in Denver. I have seen a few big bombers before, but there was a few guys out with some absolute monster throws. One big dude on my card hit 550' on a couple throws on flat holes.

I've never seen a disc fly that far.

More impressive though, my doubles partner's son (Eagle) parked hole 2 just 5' from the pin in the 485' position. He's 15 years old. His dad tells me that he can hit 550' w/ a good 360 step. His son was on the card behind us so we got to watch quite a few of his rips coming at us. His technique is astounding.

Yeah, watching someone throw the equivalent of two of my drives at one go is kinda amazing.

Hey Lane, no it was Jake. I haven't gotten to play with Will yet, but my brother said he's got a canon.

Paco is only 18 right now. Basket 13 was stolen and 9 & 10 are pulled for what the city is calling "re-vegetation"... you know, of the weeds.

Hit me up if you want the tour.

I played with a guy who threw it basket high but about 80' to the right on a 630' par 4. I got it 460ish and was feeling high and mighty until he did that...

I remember at my first sanctioned event, I saw a guy throw a 500ish drive and I was pretty damn amazed.
