The last time I played with Barry Schultz was in May of 2011. I dont recall any of his drives going over 375' and he was able to put together 1057 rated round. He was 17 out of 18 once he was arrived to the circle.

Barry can for sure throw over 400, at least I seen him do it on videos with a Leopard.

Maybe he is throwing it shorter now, don't know.

Barry can easily throw over 375'. Especially if you're talking about his max D. He's done it in videos I've seen of him this year.

Barry 925 feet in two in 99' on 911, 15 foot putt. So fairway driver 460+. They say his drive went 500 bills.

There are only so many women that can throw over 300 feet anyway. The skill gap is much greater in FPO than MPO.
The top girls all can reach 400 max distance and they make most putts inside the circle. Maybe not all putts, but most. It seems you seriously underestimate the skills necessary to win world's right now in either the men's or women's open division. Watch Paige, Cat, Val, or any of the top girls. At most tournaments they are beating half the men's open field. I know Val is rated higher than alt of the guys I know who choose to play open and they even cash occasionally. Yes, the gap between top girls and the top guys is alot but those girls are very good and would beat most guys. As many have stated 400ft is not a crazy distance to achieve worth some athleticism and good form. Strength is not necessary really at all to throw modern drivers 400 ft. Technique and timing is.

Correct, the video is on YouTube. Barry can still easily reach 400ft nearly 15 years later. Even Mike Raley the 2013 Grandmasters champ can reach 400ft backhand and sidearm max distance. The champs are good. That's why they are current champs.

That's also 14 years ago.

That course is also 10x harder now with 14 years of growth on all the trees and some changes to the layout. RFDO two years ago we had an A-tier and the big guns came through (mcbeth, wysocki, feldberg, etc) there were only a handful of 3's on that hole. Course record is 47 (wysocki) with a course par of 57.

Can't wait for the NT this year, Rochester is closing out the schedule with the 40th Annual Rochester Flying Disc Open.

Actually my whole argument is that it takes a lot of things. And huge distance is not one them.
