Laura Nagtegaal 2019 Amateur World Champion FA40
 
If you don't know why the subject may or may not be newsworthy, I would suggest some research first.

Well...let's hear your opinion.

The suspense is getting to me...

But I think some background (i.e. supply us with the clif notes) would be nice. I’d like to be convinced to do further research than given some ambiguous suggestion.

Laura Nagtegaal was born a male. The individual now identifies as a female. The PDGA is allowing transgender individuals to compete in the division of the gender in which they identify. Nagtegaal won the FA40 division by 21 strokes in a field of 17. Nagtegaal competed exclusively in mixed divisions (also, no longer referred to as men's divisions by the PDGA) from the time they became a PDGA member in 2010 until 2019.

Getting worked up about a geezer?

I'll save my outrage for something more interesting.

I started the thread because regardless of anyone's position, this was an historic day for disc golf.

Fun little story... I was at a event in Mijas, Spain. Waiting for the missing person in our group to arrive at the tee. Dude walks up, says hi I am with you, I tell him no actually we're waiting for a Laura, thats me he says. Oh okay. *awkward silence ensues*

Nothing against her, just was a odd little incident. Now I know who she is. Shes done a lot for the PDGA, kudos to her.

But I knew from experience already, that especially on driving distance, I was most beatable.
When my body still ran on testosterone, I max-ed out at 420-430ft on a good day, and averaged about 370-380ft. Now I barely reach 330-340ft on a good day. And that 330-340ft is totally feasible for a cisgender woman
Glad that she agrees with me that you cannot be a good male disc golfer only driving 300' :thmbup:

Consistent 330+ distance would easily put her up there with some of the better fpo players. Maybe she'll play fpo.
