Wonder if he sleeps tonight?

Could you imagine if during the NBA playoff game tonight, late into the 3rd and 4th quarter, they started to cut away to show the beginning of a WNBA game? :\

maybe they could do something like show FPO at least tee off on hole 1 live, and then cut to the missed MPO shots during their walk down, and kind of balance back and forth like that. golf doesn't show every shot live right? maybe it's not feasible for them to do this kind of stuff on the fly but i feel like it should be.

at the end of the day if you're watching a 3+ hour round there's no reason why you should miss ANY shots, even if you don't see them live but instead 30 seconds to 1 minute after the fact kind of thing

BuiltTooLong 09-03-2020 04:58 PM

They did show a sick replay of a long Ricky putt, but it lost the excitement of it, since it was obvious he was going to can it since they were highlighting the replay. I truly don't mind FPO in there, if we don't miss shots. They did a fair amount of picture and picture though which is always nice in moderation.

Today's scores, as well as tee times for tomorrow's Friday 4th of September round for both MPO and FPO on Fox Run have been posted!

i feel like he has become the quiet but noticeable underdog

I'm an east TN native, so I'm biased, but it is wild how Chris Dickerson has been a top 5'ish player in the world for at least 2+ years, yet always seems to be either forgotten or discussed as a sleeper or underdog.

Because if any of the other top 5 players are there, he never wins.

He's won the DGPT championship a couple of times, but I've consistently noticed most of the top pros taking that less seriously than other tourneys. Heck, he was the only top 5 player there last year.

That said, I would love to see him pull one out. This weekend, USDGC, Worlds, anything where he can pull out a win in a standard tourney against the other guys rated as highly as him. Seems like a swell guy.

I just hope Doss doesn't call him Chickerson ever again.

brutalbrutus 09-03-2020 11:22 PM

He also doesn't tour full time. He skips most if not all the west coast events. I still remember the first time I saw him play. 2014 BG Ams final9. Our PDGA numbers are only 54 apart...



...but I think he's done slightly better than me.:D

autocrosscrx 09-04-2020 06:21 AM

I mean, yeah, he is a huge underdog to win events that he doesn't enter.

I just think if you have a field of a couple hundred pros, the guy that has the 4th highest rating and has finished top 3 in the last 3 big events probably has a chance to do okay.

...but when I think underdog or sleeper, I think guys outside the top 30 or so.

brutalbrutus 09-04-2020 08:29 AM



Jerm and Uli on the mics

i dont pay attention to ratings however maybe moar accurately i meant he isnt expected to win tourneys and creeps his way into the podium seemingly in the last round

also if we were betting who would win mpo i dont think many would pick him however he isnt bottom of the barrel either

Chris Dickerson is absolutely one of the best guys on tour! Simply one of the nicest guys youíll ever meet. Definitely pulling for him as well!

Ryan P. 09-04-2020 01:13 PM

Don't tell Brother Dave, but Dustin Keegan is playing well.

ThrowBot 09-04-2020 01:16 PM

Anyone else getting choppy audio on the live stream? Started for me with the MPO lead card on hole 2.

elmexdela 09-04-2020 01:54 PM

He had a pretty rough 18th.

McCready 09-04-2020 02:43 PM

Conrad can’t keep it in bounds. KJ surging.

the_lung 09-04-2020 03:03 PM

Eagle McMahon killing it out there!!!

Bigtex 09-04-2020 04:03 PM

holy **** Doss talks WAY too ****ing much

McCready 09-04-2020 04:06 PM

Dickerson melts down on 18, 3 drives OB. Takes him off lead card tomorrow. :doh:

DiscFifty 09-04-2020 04:07 PM

Ryan P. 09-04-2020 04:20 PM

heartbreaker

Ryan P. 09-04-2020 04:25 PM

McBeth basically did the same thing that he did 2 years ago on this hole at Worlds. Has a chance to come within 1 of the lead, a bad putt leads to a 3 putt and he's a lot further away.

Wait, ask Ulibarri, is it further or farther?

Jolt 09-04-2020 04:26 PM

And Paul putts himself of the lead card . . thats one of the worst putts i have seen from Paul

McCready 09-04-2020 04:30 PM

Brooks-Wells gets to play with McBeth, Ricky & Nikko tomorrow. Congrats?

Pretty much the "dream card" for Dan, right?

The Fox Run Meadows course, especially in any amount of wind, is one of the most deceivingly difficult courses you will ever see Pros play. It looks wide open but there is OB lurking EVERYWHERE. It is so damned hard, even for these caliber of players.

Trust me, this is coming from someone who absolutely loathes disc golf on ball golf courses and other wide open layouts. I canít even stand watching the coverage of those tournaments, itís just so B-O-R-I-N-G. Basically the same wide open distance shots over and over and over, and with no penalty for being off your line. Fox Run couldnít be any further from that.

I feel this way too, though Iím not qualified to assess what is and isnít challenging for pros. But I enjoy watching it because it looks to me like a grinder of a course with risk/reward elements.

I also donít know if it totally comes through on video, but itís also a beautiful course given the surrounding mountains. Probably would be more of another ďwide open, OB ropesĒ course if in another location.
